He captioned the post, ”then there were those that chose to speak of change through cinema rather than words. I didn’t want to believe it. Bindas bhai Nishi sir, thank you. I don’t know how to articulate anymore, I’m sorry. Here’s to you.”
Nishikant helmed Irrfan Khan‘s ‘Madaari’, the film also marked the late actor’s wife Sutapa Sikdar’s debut as a producer. Apart from that, the filmmaker and actor duo had also collaborated for ‘Mumbai Meri Jaan’.
In a recent interaction with Etimes, Sutapa opened up about Kamat. She said: ‘Madaari’ will always be remembered by me not only because it’s my first film as a producer but it being a project which we connected personally. Ironically two common men who shone because of their talent, made a film about a common man setting yourself do an extraordinary deed. Nishi will be in my heart always for his straightforwardness for his hardwork and warmth… He had a simplicity of a rooted man. I will always remember him.” Describing the year 2020, she shared, “It’s been a horrendous year globally, personally, and I am yet to come in terms with Irrfan’s flying away from us. I am still hiding away celebrating him alone.”
