Speaking to TOI, Manjit said, “Obviously, he discussed worries like there was no work due to the lockdown, he had no money to pay the rent of his house. It was outstanding for the last two months and there was no money for daily expenses. He was a very happy-go-lucky person. He used to do stand-up comedy and make everyone laugh with his hilarious jokes. He kept everyone happy. He always tackled all the problems with a smile.”
