Rani Mukerji, who has worked with the late filmmaker, attended his funeral. Rani released a statement that read, “I’m very very shocked by the news of Dada’s passing away. I, in fact, spoke to him just the other day when I had gone to Amritsar, to the Golden Temple where he had called me telling me about my film so we had a long chat, he was insisting to do a facetime call but that day the network was not so good so I was unable to video call him. We were planning to meet this week when I got back but it is just so unexpected.”
