Sunil Dutt: With the demise of Prasad Ji, an important part of the film world has been lost. What did he not do for the film industry, he gave so many ideal films in South and Hindi languages ​​under the banner of ‘Prasad Productions’, and built ‘Prasad Studio’ equipped with modern facilities. He fearlessly launched so many new faces. He came through a difficult phase of the struggle, doing small roles, and gradually reached the peak of fame as a filmmaker he had a lot of sensitivity. My closeness with him grew during the film ‘Milan’. May his soul rest in peace.

He contributed a lot to the establishment of 'Prasad Netra Chikitsa Kendra'. While working with him, I felt that as much as he was generous, he was also as strict. He did not like star tantrums at all and he did not compromise in this matter. I wish there were some more filmmakers like him. May God give him a place in heaven!

He was also a top director in Tamil and Telugu films. May his soul rest in peace.

From there to here, he reached the top and became the recipient of the Dadasaheb Phalke Award. He was an amazing person.
