In an exclusive interview with ETimes, the ‘Baiko Asavi Ashi’ star, who shared screen space with Ramesh Deo, opened up about the bond he shared with the veteran actor, his memories and how Deo’s passing is a terrible loss for Indian cinema.
Expressing his grief, Ashok Saraf said “Ramesh Deo was like my elder brother. I used to call him ‘Ramesh Bhaiyaa’. He used to watch all my films and always appreciated my work. My first film was with Ramesh Deo and it was a great honour because my first shot was with him.”
“I had spoken to him on his birthday on January 30. I could make out that he was not well and was very tired. I have lost my elder brother today,” Saraf concluded.
Ramesh Deo and Ashok Saraf are well-known for their Marathi movies like ‘Fatakadi’, ‘Baiko Asavi Ashi’ ‘Gosht Lagna Nantarchi’ and ‘Hech Mazha Maher’
