Elaborating further, he stated,“It was a treat to watch him act in Subhash Ghai’s ‘Saudagar’. His chemistry with the director was tremendous. I also remember doing ‘Mashaal’ with him.”
Sharing an anecdote from the movie, he added, “There was this football scene where we were supposed to play guys from the slums who played football. We got all trained to essay the role and we did a lot of practice. Even Dilip ji prepped up for the scene. It was a scene where he tells us to try and stop him from scoring a goal. The manner in which Dilip saab played football in the scene, we were all amused. He gave exactly what the scene demanded. He played so well we all looked like midgets in front of him. Dilip saab also told us that he used to play a lot of football during his younger days.”
“We all would miss him dearly. There was and there will never be an actor like him,” he concluded.
