Director of popular Shah Rukh Khan television show Fauji, Colonel Raj Kumar Kapoor passed away on Wednesday due to age-related illness.

Shah Rukh on Friday took to Twitter to share the deep impact the filmmaker had on the actor’s life early on.

The actor wrote, “He loved me so much. Encouraged me. And today if I am used to being mollycoddled on sets it’s because of this man who made a ‘Fauji’ out of a boy, like his own. Will miss you Sir…always. May u find peace in ur new mission.”

Acclaimed director Shekhar Kapur also replied to SRK’s tweet. He wrote, “Yes, I remember well the day the ‘Colonel’ brought you to my house during Faujj. ‘Watch this young man’ He said. And he was so right. What a wonderful compassionate man @iamsrk.”

Shekhar Kapur concluded the series of tweets by raising a toast to the director. He wrote, “Yes. Generous too. Let’s just raise a toast to Colonel Kapoor. And hope we come across more like him. If we are lucky. It’s wonderful that you amongst the million things you are busy with, remembered him so fondly.”
