Amitabh Bachchan wrote, "What has been extremely heartening to the day has been the meeting up with some of the old Junior Artists that have been around much before I even began my journey, and have served consistently since then with the multiple films that I had the good fortune to be in, with them."
"Indeed a folded hand for them .. they have all aged with time but have remained steadfast to the profession .. simple, humble, loving beings .. in the crowds that stand behind, that mime their conversation, that have never aspired to be in the front .. just satisfied with what they have, film after film after film," he also said.
"What a life.. many of them may have aspired to be the lead in the film .. to have that speaking part which could open up other doors for them .. but no .. they have remained where they were 45 years ago and still are their, in their confined space ..at times a sad tale of existence .. but them that have been with us have stamped their seals for posterity .. they shall remain where they were, but they shall remain. Remain. Actors and actresses have come and gone .. but they remain .. in ever frame!" he also wrote.
