On Monday, Amitabh Bachchan took to his Twitter page to share his grief over Satyadev Dubey's death. The 69-year-old actor wrote, "Sudden news of the passing away of Satyadev Dubey... a huge theatre icon... committed and passionate about his craft... Condolences!!"
The senior Bollywood also recounted the small scene from his 1975 hit film Deewar, where Dubey was his co-star. Amitabh Bachchan further tweeted, "Satyadev Dubey... played a small but significant role in Deewar with me... the dock scene where he refuses to pay 'hafta'."
However, Satyadev Dubey was a theatre actor, director, playwright, screenwriter, film actor and director. He was in coma for the past four months. The multi-feceted persona died on Sunday at the age of 75. His sudden demise is a great loss to both theatre and film industry.
