My father @AzmiKaifi taught me to never treat my opponents like my enemies. Maturity lies in discrediting the argument with logic not discrediting the opponent by falsehood and https://t.co/ZNNyl3OKmg I wish sane debate wud prevail rather than d muck thats thrown on a daily basis

#RoshanTaneja passed away last night. With him ended an illustrious era spanning more than five decades-the greatest teacher of method acting we ever had- the revered guru to no less than four generations of brilliant actors. Rest in peace Sir. pic.twitter.com/21G0ZLbqcZ
