Apart from penning down his emotions, the actor also issued a statement and expressed his grief. "Nothing can be more heartbreaking and tragic than the news of the sad demise of my acting guru Valentin Teplyakov. I have always believed him to be amongst the most enlightened ones in the world of acting. He is the man who introduced me to method acting and its techniques. I can’t’ believe he visited me this year and we had spent such quality time together, he said.

Adding, he said, "Not many are aware of the fact that Valentin Teplyakov has been trained under the guidance of the disciples of Konstantin Stanislavsky - the father of method acting. Moreover, Mr. Teplyakov has been continuing the legacy of training students for years. The only wish I have now is to propagate his thoughts and beliefs, his acting techniques further especially amongst the youth.”

In February this year, Nawazuddin had spoken about reuniting with his acting Guru after years, in an Instagram post. The actor had shared a photograph of his teacher and written: "The man who introduced me to Method Acting, Sir Valentin Teplyakov from Moscow.
