She wrote in her caption, “You know, It's incredible! Hospitals during the era when home video viewing was popular would receive requests from patients in distress and severe depression to provide them with videos of "PADOSAN." These patients found solace, extreme joy, and laughter in watching the film. I vividly recall sending numerous video cassettes of "PADOSAN" to these hospitals. The patients would then call back, expressing gratitude for the uplifting experience the fantastically funny film provided them.”

She further added, “Dilip Sahib and Mehmood Bhai shared a remarkable camaraderie. I recall a hilarious scene from "Sadhu Aur Shaitan" where Sahib and Mumtaaz are strolling on the road, and Mehmood Bhai, in the role of a taxi driver, adds a comedic twist. Picture this: Sahib and Mumtaaz, blissfully unaware, are walking right in the middle of the road, and Mehmood Bhai, honking, exclaims, "Are Behra Hai Kyaa!" He then steps out of the taxi, saying, "Surat Kya Dilip Kumar se Milti Hai, Acting Bhi Dilip Kumar Ki Chalu, Aree Film Line Mein Bahut Sare Log Dilip Kumar Ki Copy Kar Ke Apne Ration Ka Kharcha Nikaalte Hain," leading to an uproarious fight. The synergy between Sahib and Mehmood Bhai on screen was nothing short of phenomenal. Imagine witnessing two legendary actors flawlessly blending their comic flair—it's an unforgettable experience, isn't it?”

Banu concluded by saying, “Mehmood Bhai, who was an Indian actor best known for his impeccable comic timing in Hindi cinema, held a unique position as the first comedian to receive greater prominence than the leading heroes in films. His extensive filmography includes numerous hits such as "PADOSAN" and "BOMBAY TO GOA." Today, we cherish only fond memories of him. With his passing, the film industry mourned the loss of a great human being and a comedian par excellence, who was not just a dear friend but a cherished family member. His behaviour and mannerisms were unmatched, making it impossible for anyone to replicate. To preserve his legacy, a re-screening of his films is essential, introducing this rare gem to a generation unaware of his brilliance. Miss you dearly Mehmood Bhai! Make the Angels and the Gods laugh!”
