एक और सितारा ज़मीन से आसमान में जा पहुँचा।#Jagdeep साब हिंदी फ़िल्म जगत के एक बहुत ही बेहतरीन कलाकार थे। एक हास्य अभिनेता के नाते उनका कोई सानी नहीं था।एक पार्टी में बहुत साल पहले उन्होंने मुझसे कहा था,”बरखुरदार ! हँसना आसान है, हँसाना बहुत मुश्किल है!” आपकी कमी बहुत खलेगी।???? pic.twitter.com/48yF0gu9uv
