He passed away quietly at his residence March 20. He was 99.

Divya, who played a key role in "Train To Pakistan", met the writer a few months ago only.

"I've the fondest memories of him! We shared a bond ever since 'Train To Pakistan'. I visited him at his home in Delhi a few months back. We had a heart-to-heart chat. He was full of life. He gifted me a book with a lovely message. It would be my cherished gift for life," said the talented actress.

Divya is now in the process of writing a book culling together the anecdotes she has gathered from Khushwant Singh.

"We discussed life in general.I am writing down his anecdotes. I could never get enough of them," she added.

Rajit said: "If there was one Indian who really spoke his mind and who really had a way with words it was Khushwant Singh. He was a man of letters all the way."

"Train To Pakistan", released in 1998, was directed by Pamela Rooks.
