    Get well soon Mr. Mukherjee, when I was in highschool the movie I watched of his was Love in Shimla. I fell in love with his acting, and his comedian facial expression. I loved him in Shagird, Ziddi, Love in Shimla, and Phir Woh Dil Laya Hoon!!! Love his song Woh Hai Zara Kafa Kafa ho ho...

    Loved his movie 'Shagird'.
    When he was young he looked so handsome. Really old age spares no one. Some of the songs of his movies are great!
    Hope you recover soon :)
