In an interview to IANS recently, she said: Working with Dev Saab was "like being on an express train." "Dev Saab was such a huge star that people didn't give him enough credit as an actor. He was very stylish. But he was also a brilliant actor. His clothes, hairstyle, the way he talked and walked exuded glamour and uniqueness. And he was a complete film person. Actor, director, writer, producer…. He lived breathed, ate and slept cinema, said Asha.
