Dadu was very chaalu and passed down this trait to family.

Sweet....Dadu was a pioneer in cinema, he lived for it, strove hard, suffered for it and rewarded by it. First to take Indian cinema and popularized it abroad, even built the famous RK studios. He had his human flaws but was the greatest showman. What a legacy you come from Bebo and Lolo, makes me proud for you.
