Dharmendra Deol also spoke to the media and reminisced this great actor. He started off by saying, "Imagine our talks and with so much love he gave me a sweater to wear. It used to get nippy those days in 60s so I told him 'I will not return it, can I take it?' He happily gave it to me with a lot of love. Then we were shooting one day; he would tell me wear my suit and I told Saira 'I have got my own, will wear my own cause his are a little loose' and I couldn't say no to him then I reminded him, 'Dilip sahib I took your sweater' since nobody forgets if they have bought something nice so he said, 'Yea I got 2 from Paris, one Nasir took and the other you took."
He also added, "I have 1000 of memories. I got so many things. I used to ask him for things I liked. He would give like a big brother. Many such things. He would tell me to stay strong and would say how God has given so much. He would ask me to take a break from the city. 'You should go out as you're from the village. It will be suffocating for you here in Mumbai. Go once a month to Lonavala.' He was such a nice man you can write a book on him."
