Actor, producer, director, comedian and screenwriter Satish Kaushik, popularly known as ‘Calendar’ in the film world, passed away last night (around 2.30am) at Fortis Hospital in Gurugram. The autopsy of the body of 66-year-old Satish Kaushik was underway at Delhi’s Deen Dayal Hospital, which has been completed. It is said that he died of a heart attack, although Fortis doctors doubted it, so an autopsy was performed on his body. His body was handed over to the next of kin at around 12:45 p.m. by the Deen Dayal Hospital.
Sudden cardiac arrest is the cause of death
His friend Prateek Anand, who came to the hospital with Satish Kaushik’s body, told that the cause of death of Satish is sudden cardiac arrest (sudden heart attack), but the detailed report is yet to come.

When were they taken to the hospital and what do the doctors say
According to information, Satish Kaushik had come to Delhi to celebrate Holi with friends. His health deteriorated late at night and he was rushed to Fortis Hospital in Gurugram. Satish Kaushik was taken to hospital around 2:30 am, where doctors pronounced him dead.
Although during the test, the doctors found that the possibility of a heart attack seemed less due to his condition. This is why Fortis doctors notified Delhi Police of Satish Kaushik’s death and asked for the post-mortem of the dead body.
According to the doctors, when they saw Satish, it seemed that he might have fallen from somewhere, in which case the post-mortem of the dead body becomes necessary. If death had been confirmed as a result of a heart attack, there would have been no autopsy.
