Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who shared screen space with actor Deven Varma in many films including superhits ‘Kabhie Kabhie’ and ‘Silsila’, said his ‘friend’ brought smiles to many faces.
Varma passed away yesterday morning at his residence in Pune following a heart attack. He was 78.
“Deven Verma… Shall never be able to repeat our patent greeting: “this floor is made of cement concrete”. RIP,” Bachchan posted on Twitter.
Amitabh Bachchan, 72, had also worked in ‘Kabutar’ and ‘Besharam’ which were among those produced and directed by Varma.
