Abhishek Bachchan says that National Award-winning filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh, who passed away Thursday, was the only director with whom the entire Bachchan family had worked.

“Absolutely shocked with the news of the passing of Ritu da. A dear friend and a great director and a wonderful, wonderful human. RIP,” Abhishek, 37, tweeted.

“Just realised that Ritu da was the only director that my family have all worked with individually. Pa (Amitabh) — The Last Lear, Ma (Jaya) — Sunglass,… Aishwarya — Chokher Bali and Raincoat, and me — Antarmahal,” he further tweeted.

Ghosh, who was suffering from pancreatitis, passed away at his South Kolkata residence in sleep around 7.30am following a massive cardiac arrest, the film industry sources said. He was 49.
