Agli film ke set pe tera intezaar karunga…. aur tujhe aana hi padega. Om Sai Ram (What was the hurry to go so early? I told you how the entire industry has stopped working for you. Get well soon and all will begin work again. You act well. I will wait for you on the sets of our next film and you will have to show up) (sic).”
