In addition to direction, Om Prakash ji has also produced films like Aandhi, Aankhon Aankhon Mein, Aya Sawan Jhoom Ke, Aaye Din Bahar Ke, Ayee Milan Ki Bela, Aas Ka Panchhi and more.
A few days ago, Hrithik Roshan shared adorable pictures with his grandpa on Twitter.
The ‘Super 30’ star captioned the moments, “#MySuperTeacher – My Nana who I lovingly call Deda, for the lessons he has taught me at every stage of my life, which I share with my kids now.
And Dr Oza, my speech therapist as a child, who taught me to accept my weakness and helped me overcome my fear of stammer.”
Reportedly, Hrithik performed last rites and Amitabh, Abhishek Bachchan came to pay their respects.
May J Omprakash ji’s soul rest in peace.
