Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who shared screen space with actor Deven Verma in many films including superhits 'Kabhie Kabhie' and 'Silsila', said his 'friend' brought smiles to many faces.
Deven Verma passed away yesterday morning at his residence in Pune following a heart attack. He was 78.
"Deven Verma... Friend, co-artist, producer and one that brought smiles on the faces of millions.. No more! Prayers and condolences. Deven Verma... Shall never be able to repeat our patent greeting: 'this floor is made of cement concrete'. RIP," Big B posted on Twitter.
Amitabh Bachchan, 72, had also worked in 'Kabutar' and 'Besharam' which were among those produced and directed by Varma. The 'Bhootnath Returns' star is currently in Ahmedabad shooting his upcoming movie 'Piku', which talks about the relationship of a father and daughter.
