New Delhi: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor on Monday remembered the late Pran on his 98th birth anniversary, saying he learnt the discipline of being punctual from him.
The 'Bobby' actor took to Twitter today to share an incident from his set about how his late arrival on the film sets had once angered Pran.
"Happy Birthday Pran Uncle. Thank you for being in my many films! Still remember you got angry with me on the sets of `Zinda Dil`. That day onwards, I learnt the discipline of being punctual," he wrote alongside an image of Pran.
