“He is gone too soon. He was undergoing treatment for cancer in Delhi’s AIIMS hospital for six months. I spoke to him last on 15 May and at that time he said he had started recovering. He stayed with his parents and elder brother in Mathura. I learnt about his demise from a common friend”.

Kubbra Sait of Sacred Games fame took to Twitter to mourn his demise. “Damn!!! I have no idea how I missed the news of the passing away of Mohit Baghel. The smartest child I knew when I was still a child. Man o man... rest in peace my friend. *Amar Chaudary*
Big love... Me”, she wrote.

Raaj, who worked as a writer with Mohit in Comedy Circus and Jabariya Jodi, said he wanted to cast the actor in his directorial debut Dream Girl (2019) but it didn’t materialise because of issues in dates.

“He was a talented actor. His comic timing was great. He was working on two films at that time - Milan Talkies and Bunty Aur Babli 2 - so we couldn't work together on Dream Girl,” he told PTI.

Mohit Baghel also acted in films Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami and Gali Gali Chor Hai.
