His co-star Charul Malik tearfully expressed her grief, and said that she has not only lost a colleague but also a friend. "I was devasted when I got to know about his death in the morning. I met him only yesterday and we shot a few fun videos together. We were very close friends and would often discuss with each other. He was such an amazing person and would even help me with my scenes. I am now heading to his home but I don't know how will I face his family." Charul added that Deepesh followed a healthy lifestyle and was a fitness enthusiast.
Deepesh Bhan had also worked on comedy shows such as Faltu Utpatang Chutpati Kahani, May I Come in Madam? and Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.
