He was one of the finest actors in Malayalam cinema. He could easily be cast as the lead in movies, yet he was also perfect as a character actor. He was not keeping well during the shoot of Indian 2. During the shoot, he would share his apprehensions with me. We spoke about how we would celebrate this movie together after its release. Today, when I stand here, I feel his presence with me,” he said.
