When asked Dushyant Kapoor about how Shashi was instrumental is shaping his career he said, “ Shashi Prakash Chopra is the only great man you can meet. I remember the day when I met him to pitch “Suitboy” and after the narration he just asked me when are we going to shoot… the moment he said “we” I got tears in my eyes that there is someone who can really understand the superhero idea. He is a very generous man and funny guy on the set. He keeps sharing his idea what can make a scene better.”
“I want to keep working till I can, I don’t think there is anything that can stop me from doing so. Bachchan Saab is 77 and he continues to work, his every film just keeps getting better and better.
