RIP Nitesh Pandey: Rupali Ganguly reveals she is devastated over the death of her close friend. She says she met him three weeks back and they had plans to catch up

The last two days have been tragic. Today morning, we got the news that Nitesh Pandey has passed away. On the show Anupamaa, he plays the role of Dheeraj who is the BFF of Anuj (Gaurav Khanna).

He was one of the strongest supporters of MaAn's relationship. Rupali Ganguly and Nitesh Pandey had been friends for a long time.

She has said, "He had messaged me last week about a painting he had made.

We had made plans to make our sons meet."

It seems their sons are almost the same age. Nitesh Pandey is married to actress Arpita Pandey.

Sharing fond memories about her bond with Nitesh, Rupali says, "He was the only industry friend who stayed constantly in touch with me apart from Delnaaz and the Sarabhai cast during my sabbatical. He had even come to meet me after Rudransh was born.
