While Devgn shared how Amrish Ji guided him in his debut film – Phool Aur Kante, Johar shared when he worked as an assistant director in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Amrish Ji was very particular about every shots, and asked him several questions on set, which actually helped him grow.
Amrish Puri's door was always open for all
Lastly, Ajay Devgn added that even though Amrish Puri had always done villainous roles on screen, he was a very nice person. Whether it's anyone's wedding, or anyone's death, Amrish Ji attended every particular person’s events, even if that person is a big star or some junior artist. He had always supported and guided everyone.
