This is what he said in the video as part of the iForIndia concert:
“I had seen him at his home… a young, energetic and a bubbly and mischievous in his eyes. Those were the rare occasions where I had the privilege of spend evening sat Raj Ji’s home. I would more often then see him at RK Studios where he was prepping for his role in Bobby. His training used to happen in the iconic makeup room of the RK Studios – the large makeup room – at the end of the corridor of the first floor at RK studio. That special makeup room of Raj Ji. He had a walk that was confident and determined, style and a stride which was similar to his grandfather’s walk – legendary Prithviraj Kapoor. I had seen Prthiviraj Ji walk like that and Chintu’s walk was reminisced of that. We worked in several films together – Chintu and I – Kabhi Kabhi, Amar Akbar Anthony, Naseeb, Goli, and more recently, 102 Not Out. When he spoke his line,s you believed every word of it – that was the genuineness and the sincerity of how he spoke, there were never any alternatives to the way he spoke his dialogues. And there’s never been any other that could lip-synch a song as perfectly as he would. He had a playful attitude all the time, that was infectious on the sets. Even in the most grave sequences that we would about to shoot, he would discover the comedic spark and we would all crack up. Even at formal events, he would find that little attractive light and light-hearted moments that would lighten the situation. When there was a lapse in the shooting, the shot is being ready, he would never stop or remain still. He would gather people and play cards… it was not fun, it was competition amongst all of us. During the time of his diagnosis and his treatment, he never ever lamented his condition. It was always “I’ll see you soon, I’ll be back shortly.”
