Following his demise, co-stars Anupam Kher and Akshay Kumar reacted to the news.

In an interaction with The Times of India, Kher said he was extremely shocked and sad when he learned about Nahar. The actor revealed that while he was unaware of the actor’s demise last night, he read about the incident and immediately remembered him from the film MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. The actor remarked that Nahar was a happy-go-lucky guy and he had met him on the sets of the film.
Bhumika Chawla who too worked with the actor in the MS Dhoni biopic told that whatever happened was extremely sad and that depression and suicides have become so common that it is unfortunate.
