Remembering his last public interaction with Thackeray earlier this year, Gadgil said he had the opportunity to read out a speech written by the Sena supremo. "It was a public speech and Balasaheb was not well those days. He told me that he might run out of breath while reading the speech. He gave me a copy of the speech and asked me to continue if he stopped. And so he began and I had the opportunity of sharing his speech twice," says Gadgil.
Uddhav Thackeray had called on Gadgil in November 2011 to request him to interview his father for a private archival video. "Balasaheb was comfortable with me and that's why Uddhav asked me to interview him," said Gadgil.
