RIP sir!as your fans we miss you.

Amazing talent. I remember watching one of his Southern languages movie on classical music, on DD. That stayed with me for the content and acting, starting with Swami. Prayers for his soul.

RIP Sir. A talent like you are rarely born these days. You'll be missed.

All these Bollywooders writing " RIP".. My heart aches".... "My prays for him"" are just advertisng themselves on Twitter. His financial condition was really bad and no one else except Salman helped him. Last seen in Tiger Zinda Hai.

His financial condition was bad? Din't knew that! I may not agree with his political view point. But i liked him as an actor, HIs voice was so good. Why didn't he work that much in Bollywood. Why alway Amithab every where. So many venters are good and need to b e brought to the lime light.

Rip sir, your contribution to cinema will be remembered forever
