Prosenjit recalled how at the outset of his career he was floored by the Bollywood legend’s affable nature while shooting for Ajana Path.
“I was quite young then. I had asked Pranji how he kept himself so remarkably fit and on getting tips from him I copied his lunch time fruit diet for several years,” he said.
