Sanjay Chhel, writer-director, said, "Mukesh Rawal produced and acted in my first Gujarati play, Prakarn, 1956. I started my career with him. Later, we collaborated on several Gujarati television serials. He had an amazing memory. If any actor did not turn up for the show, he could go through the script and be a replacement within an hour. It's sad how he passed away."
TV actor Naman Shaw said, "I was Mukul sir's co-star in 'Beend Banoongaa Ghodi Chadhunga'. Although I was on the show for a brief period, I remember chatting with him about shooting for 'Ramayan'. He shared his experiences and how working in the industry was different when he was a young actor. I found him a down to earth man."
