A K Hangal, who breathed his last today, was very fond of cakes. In all these years, Hangal had been very consistent of making his own birthday cake and this year around too, he craved to do but unfortunately, was unable to because of illness.
Hangal celebrated his birthday on August 15, a week ago and was thriving to bake a cake for himself. The veteran actor has learnt the art of baking cake in jail when he was imprisoned for three years during freedom struggle. A Pakistani prisoner who was a cook in Britain had taught him the recipe of British cake.
“He could teach one how to make delicious cake in British style,” revealed his son Vijay Hangal.
“In fact before going into comatose and getting into hospital. He was craving from cake,” concluded the distressed son.
