Taapsee Pannu, in her emotional message for him, recalled, “Even in his bullying there was so much love that one couldn’t help enjoy listening to him. The most entertaining stories came from him.”
My most favourite picture with him. Worked with him twice n the kind of brash honest compliments this man gave have never left my heart n mind. Even in his bullying there was so much love that one couldn’t help enjoy listening to him. The most entertaining stories came from him. the only costar of mine who could beat me in being ‘brutally’ honest. Sir humaari hat-trick reh gayi. I’m sure I will meet him somewhere n this hug shall be repeated with the same smile on our face.
