Mumbai’s run-of-the-mill was no choice in life
“I did not communicate with him regularly,” Manoj said. I worked with him, but we were able to hangout less. Had a fairly good time on our set. I love his sense of humor. He also came from a theatrical background and we had plenty on set.
He was a wonder actor. He was also a happy man. He liked peace so he chose Dharamsala to stay behind leaving the splendor of Mainagari. He used to come to Mumbai only for shooting. Very few of us prefer to live permanently outside Mumbai. Big cities are losing their charm. It was a big step and I admire her for choosing her happiness and peace above all else. ‘
