Kamat, who had multiple organ failure, was admitted to the hospital on July 31 with complaints of fever and excessive fatigue. Many celebrities, including Ajay Devgn and Riteish Deshmukh took to Twitter to mourn the demise of the director."My equation with Nishikant was not just about Drishyam, a film which he directed with Tabu and me. It was an association that I cherished. He was bright; ever-smiling. He has gone too soon. RIP Nishikant," Ajay Devgn said on Twitter.
