In an interview given to a news channel, Kiran Juneja, who played Veeravali in Buniyad mourned the loss of the man who created the charcater that made her a household name. "A jewel has left us. It's natuire's cycle that he who has come into the world, must leave it too, but I can't help but feel sad about it," said Juneja, who's also the wife of Buniyaad producer, Ramesh Sippy.

Sippy too has immense respect for Joshi. In a press conference not so long ago to relaunch Buniyaad on Sahara One, the producer had highlighted the genius of the writer. He said that Joshi deserved all the praise for penning such a show as Buniyaad and it's his passion that made the show such a success.

Prabhat Ranjan who is currently researching the works of Joshi had only praise for the man. "He has made his mark on every genre -- be it novels or dubbing for films. He set standards for content on television and his works are a milestone that many strive to achieve," he pointed out.
