In my debut film ‘Pranam Kharidu’ he gave an outstanding performance in the role of a mute.
Our first acquaintance on that occasion turned into a good friendship and an even greater bond. It is a personal loss for me to no longer be close to him. May his soul rest in peace, my deepest condolences to his family and fans.”
