A tribute was held for late cinematographer-director Ashok Mehta at the film school, Whistling Woods. He had recently been honored with the Award for lifetime achievement.
Subash Ghai recollected the event and said, “When he was leaving, I told him to get well soon. I wanted him behind the camera for my new film,” says Ghai, who worked with Mehta on Ram Lakhan (1989), Saudagar (1991) and Kisna (2005). Mehta, who was in a wheelchair, responded with a smile, “Jai ho, I’ll be back soon!”
Also seen is actor Jackie Shroff.
