This chapter of the film series ‘Doshi’ brings about the kindness, warmth and generous side of BV Doshi. In today’s time, gentleness and compassion for all is a rare occurrence, especially for someone of his stature. This chapter shows these qualities that he imbibed in his life through the very welcoming and ever-changing yet timeless home that he has lived in for years, to the way he has a simple yet enriched family life. The value that Doshi created in the lives of all he touched, has been incomparable, almost without any knowledge of him knowing the impact he has created.
