Travelling down memory lane, Mishra had tweeted on Wednesday, “Many many years ago Dilip Saab had called some of us to his house. I remember Ketan Mehta and Govind Nihalani being there among others. He wanted us to make short films on communal harmony. I wish we had taken a picture! What a man. What an actor ! Thank you , Sir!”
Sharing words of appreciation for the late actor, the filmmaker had again tweeted on the same day, “Very few actors had to be skill set of Dilip Saab. He could you to so many places with his voice. He could take an over the top scene and play it, always balancing perfectly on the edge, never once falling over. Think Ganga Jumna, Andaz, Gopi.”
