Farhan Akhtar, on Tuesday, shared an emotional post for a family retainer who died recently. The actor posted a photo of the staff member, who was very close to him, and mourned him with these words: “Dear Ramu, you have been part of our family before I was born and my childhood is peppered with memories of time spent in your care, most vividly of you taking us to school, playing Atari, going to Bandra fair and you being the person who introduced me to the Disco 80 smash hit Funky Town!” In his note, Farhan added: “You were always smiling, just like in this picture. From the first time I remember seeing you to 4 decades later when we last met. Thank you for the years of love you have given us all. We are lucky to have had you grace our lives. Rest in peace.”
