Maalik mere pyaare bhai ko jannat naseeb kare. Dosto , mujhe dikhwa nahin aata lekin main apne jazbaat par qaaboo bhi nahin paata . Apne samajh ke kah jaata hoon (When Saira Banu told me, 'Look Dharam, sahab has closed his eyes', I felt heartbroken my friends! I do not know how to show off, but I cannot control my emotions. I just say what I feel like, treating everyone as my own)."


Earlier in the day, the Sholay star had posted a picture with the late actor and tweeted, "Extremely Extremely sad , to loose my most affectionate brother in the industry. Jannat naseeb ho (folded hands emoji) hamare Dalip Sahab ko (May Dilip sahab attain heaven)."
