Manoj, wo had arrived as a guest, had left his slippers when he checked out, saying that Pankaj took them.
The Stree actor than gave a detailed version of the story and started with saying, "I got a call that Manoj ji is here. I used to do theatre back then so the kitchen staff knew it. I told them that whenever he orders anything from his room, I’ll be the one to take it. So I went there, met bhaiyya, said ‘Pranaam, even I am into theatre’, touched his feet and left the room. Next day he checked out and left for the airport. But he left a hawai chappal behind. The housekeeping supervisor said ‘Are! Your Manoj bhai is gone but he left his chappal here’. The audience broke into laughter said, "I said don’t submit it, give it to me.”
Adding to the explanation on why he did so, he said, “Kyun? Eklavya ki tarah agar main inke khadau mein apna paer daal lu (Why? If like Eklavya I, too, could put my feet in his slipper)...” While saying this, Pankaj's voice teared up and he titlted his face to the back.
