Recently, Alter spoke about the video and recalled how Dilip Vengsarkar introduced him to the teen sensation who was practicing with the Bombay team.

Recalling the event in an interview with The Times of India, Alter shares,

“I clearly remember the interaction. It was his first video interview. I wouldn’t say he was naive but rather innocent and soft-spoken. Though a little shy in front of the camera, the boy was very confident without being a show-off.”

He died on Saturday morning at the age of 67. The late actor was awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India in the year 2008. May his soul rest in peace.
