The genius behind Goodness Gracious Me and Kumars at No.42 has died from a rare infection. Sharat Sardana collapsed at his father’s home after contracting a streptococcal virus but died a few days later in hospital. Sardana was only 40 years of age. Oh, what a sadder place this world is going to be without him. Sardana’s funeral will be held next Wednesday at the City of London Crematorium in Manor Park at 5pm. I am sure even in death he would want people to laugh and remember his work fondly. Here is one of the friggin funniest skits ever “Going out for an English” turning the table on the English going out for a curry! RIP Sardana and thanks for the laughs.
