The filmmaker recently penned a heartfelt note for his friend Deepak Bhagwat. He shared a picture with Deepak and wrote, “This man standing right behind me has spent 14-15 hours of his day with me for the last 17 years. My family and I cannot do without him. Deepak Bhagwat, what kind of bond is this? I don’t know, but is it the blessing of the Lord that you are with me? Happy birthday.”
