He is someone who would always correct you even if you made a minor faux pas in English.”

Feeling a huge sense of loss & my heart goes out to the grief-stricken family Neetu, Ranbir, Riddhima, Daboo, Rima & Chimpu at their tremendous loss. Truly is a huge loss also to Film Industry & all those who loved him. Really gone too soon Be with the divine in peace Chintu.”
