  • On his demise the popular TV actor, Avinash Sachdev who was also a close friend of Samir said,

I was in touch with him through the lockdown; just two weeks ago, we were chatting with each other via voice notes. He told me that he feels blessed to have come back from a bad phase in life, which he fought successfully and now he was busy with work. He went through a rough patch when he fell ill and was hospitalised in Bengaluru, a couple of years ago. After his recovery, his parents were averse to him returning to Mumbai, but he came back and rented an apartment not too far from my residence. In fact, on Wednesday night, I had passed through his lane and saw two fire brigades and a police van outside the building. I checked with another friend, who told me that someone had died by suicide. Yesterday, I got to know that it was Sam. I am still shaken up and can’t come to terms with it. Sam was a fighter, not someone who would give up. Just 15 days ago, he was in Lonavala and had told me that he wanted to step out.”

  • He posted his last status on Facebook on 27 July 2020.
