We made two films together – ‘Dhoom’ and ‘Dhoom 2’. Sanju, when I spoke to you last week and we were reminiscing about our shoots and memories, I would never have imagined even in my craziest dreams that I would have to write a post like this. I’m shocked beyond belief. You had faith in me, even when I didn’t. You gave me my first ever hit!!! I can never ever forget that or be able to express what it meant to me. I will cherish your friendship always. Rest in peace, my brother.” Gadhvi’s last project was ‘Operation Parindey’ in 2020.
