Mumbai: Superstar Shahrukh Khan got emotional at the prayer meet of filmmaker Kundan Shah and said that it is one of the biggest losses of his life.
“If we have been in touch with Kundan, we know what a wonderful gentleman he was. How much he loved all of us, maybe his expressing of love was different from what people behave. For me, I don’t know how to express this. It is one of the greatest losses of my life,” said SRK.
Shahrukh, who was directed by Kundan in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na, further said, “I was 25 when I came to Mumbai. I have stayed in Kundan’s house, have been fed by his family. I have been looked after by them. I remember when I was leaving Delhi, the first thing my theatre friends told me was, “When you meet Kundan Shah, touch his feet and give him a hug from all of us.” That’s how much we loved his work.”
Shahrukh won Filmfare critics award for best actor for his excellent performance in’ Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’.
Kundan Shah passed away on Saturday in Mumbai at the age of 69. He has died of a heart attack.
“I was very fortunate that I got a chance to work with him. I am who I am, not just because I learned from him, but because I got so much love from him,” SRK added.
Shah directed films like ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’, ‘Kya Kehna’ and ‘Dil Hai Tumahara’. He made his mark on a small screen by directing hit shows like ‘Nukkad’ and ‘Waagle Ki Duniya’.
