Satish is married to Madhu Shah since 1982. The incident happened when she was very seriously ill and on the operation table, and he was sitting outside in deep worry.

When Satish Shah wanted to hit a fan

“India mein ye problem hai (this is a problem in India). They can’t differentiate between a person and an actor or a guy who is performing and a guy who is a normal person. They expect you to be funny even in the moments…in the environment where one has to be serious…when the circumstances make you serious. But one has to live with it,” he told CNN-News18.

Sharing the incident, he said, “My wife was seriously ill, she was almost dying on the operation table. And I was very tense because we’d been married only for three months. I was sitting outside, very worried, and a guy comes to me and says, ‘Kya yaar, aap aise serious baithe ho, ache nahi lagte ho, koi joke-woke maaro (what is this, you are sitting in such a serious mood, tell a joke.’ Joke to maarne ki baat alag hai, main usey ek knockout punch maar sakta tha (forget the joke, I could hit him). But somehow, better sense prevailed, and I just walked off. But it’s part of the baggage we carry.”
