“I worked with him on two or three films but the maximum time I spent him was in New York while we were shooting for Aa Ab Laut Chale, he was playing a Pakistani, because it was outdoor in New York I spent a lot of time with him. I remember in the morning we used to go for a shoot in a mini van where I would sit behind him. I used to roll a paper like a needle and put it in his ears from the back very gently, like how a fly sits on our ears and there is a sensation, he would squirm a lot and I used to laugh so much...I continued this for 3 or 4 days and then I got caught by him, he yelled at me so badly.”

He also said that Khan was a child at heart. As the industry industry mourns his loss Anupam Kher went on to recount his experience of working with him in Sooryavansham and Hum.

“I have spent a lot of time with him, Sooryavansham has become a national iconic film since last 4 to 5 years, all my friends keep repeating our scenes together. Also, I spent a lovely time with him during Hum, every moment with was precious, he was a great scholar,” Kher said to Indiatimes.
