A close associate of the late Nitin Desai confirmed to ETimes that his first birth anniversary was celebrated at the ND Studios yesterday (August 6). “We put up flowers and garlands on his photo and did a small puja,” he said.
Nitin Desai celebrated most of his birthdays at his Studio, and last year was one such celebration where he threw a huge birthday bash for his close associates.
Photos and videos from his last year’s birthday are shared on his social media handle, and we can see ND smiling through all the pictures.
The celebrated art director committed suicide at the wee hours of August 2 on the sets of the Marathi reality show ‘Marathi Pavool Padate Pudhe’, located at ND Studios in Khalapur. His funeral was held two days after his death at the same location.
Desai is well known for his prolific work on several Bollywood films including ‘Devdas‘, Lagaan’, Munnabhai MBBS, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Khamoshi: The Musical, and Panipat, to name a few.
