Deeply saddened to know about the sad demise of #JOmPrakash ji. He was a wonderful film maker & a very warm person. Grew up humming songs from his films. Jai Jai Shiv Shankar… my favourite. Last film shoot I did in Kashmir was for his film #Agni. Will miss him.🙏 #OmShanti pic.twitter.com/dmYwM2f3KY

As a young man he sold his wedding ring to buy books. Studied under street lamps. Self taught. Ignited by creativity he forayed into films. Aap ki kasam and 22 more jubilee films brought him name and fame. But his greatest work was love. Here he is at 92. My greatest teacher. My Deda.
Hrithik, who shares a great bond with his grandfather, must be grief-stricken now. We offer our heartfelt condolences to Hrithik and his family.
