Doctors and medical staff say that he used to entertain everyone till the last. He used to be happy even after fighting the disease in these 2 years. His focus was only on family, friends, food and films. Everyone who met him was shocked to see how the sage never let himself get depressed by the disease. But who knew, the man who used to shut everyone’s mouth with his impunity, will become silent for forever.
Truly, the departure of such legends from the world in the mere time is a big setback for the cine industry and the world. May their souls rest in peace.
