Seems like it took a while for Anoop Menon to accept the depressing news. And now in his note, Anoop Menon has recalled the conversations they had and also added that he could never say goodbye to the late filmmaker.
“Dennis Joseph. We rarely saw each other. We talked. Frequent disjointed conversations. Away from the cesspool and clamour of the industry. It was devoid of any artifice or malice. Your sense of humour had a star quality to it. It was neither the carefully coiffured nor the impeccably wicked. We didn’t talk about New Delhi or Rajavinte Makan. I was more curious about “behind the scenes”. And you gave me the most incredible stories of showbiz that one day would probably make a glorious film replete with the juiciest details of the late 80s and early 90s of Malayalam cinema. Then somewhere down the lane, our conversations stopped. You returned to writing. I wallowed in my over-committed film routine. Years passed by. We lost the conversations but not the connect. And one lockdown night, I heard the news. You hung the boots and walked away. In your own Amazonian style. There are no goodbyes for you Dennis etta. Just a scotch you had long abandoned and a cigarette butt you had long extinguished (sic),” Anoop Menon said in his Facebook post.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Anoop Menon will be next seen in ‘Padma’.
