Aastha Chaudhary: RIP Balasaheb... I am terribly pained to hear that the Lion is dead.
Mohan Kapur: The Father of Mumbai & entire Maharashtra has passed... RIP
Yashashri Masurkar: He was a lovely artist ans I'll pray for his soul to rest in peace. However I am really angry about the chaos. There are thousands of Mumbaikars who will agree with me. Every one has to die one day and his death is a personal issue for his near and dear ones. Why a bandh? Will he come back if we shut down everything? Wish I could ask Balasaheb himself...
Sukirti Kandpal: Ek tha Tiger and nobody can define the life and ways of a tiger. They just leave behind their grace and magnificence. Mr. Bal Thackeray I believe was really a tiger in every sense. He meant every word he said. He always stood by what he said. And he lived like a tiger fearlessly and silently knowing he owns his jungle. I think to find a straightforward man with guts to speak his mind speaks volumes about his character. Hats off to the man.
Chhavi Pandey: Balasaheb Thackeray- Is the man who can't die, he'll live in our hearts and vision..
Mahesh Shetty: RIP Balasaheb Thackerey!!! The Man who changed Maharashtra politics forever is no more! He was a lion amongst men! You could disagree with him...hate his politics.. But you could never ignore him!! He gave the term "son of a soil" a new meaning!! He gave the son of the soil- a name.. a voice.. a reason to live!!! The roar of this tiger will be remembered forever!!
Hiten Tejwani: It is really sad to hear about his sad demise...RIP Balasaheb ...
Kushal Tandon: I am saddened by the news of Bala saab's demise. He will always be admired for his strength and conviction, the tallest amongst Maharashtra's politicians. My condolences to the family. It's a great loss to the country.
Nia Sharma: Well, he surely was a great personality for the people of Maharasthra. We had already got an off from shooting on the speculations of his death. Now it has been announced. It will be an off again tomorrow.
