Nikkhil further added, “No one treated me with the respect an actor gives a director more than you did, that too being who you were. You were my friend sir. I’m sitting, remembering and just chuckling, laughing. Waiting for your booming voice to say “boy… make me one more drink!” #RishiKapoor #RIP.”
