When Uttam Kumar went drinking with Soumitra Chatterjee after a hard day’s work, he would insist on dropping the junior actor home in his chauffeur-driven car. If his offer was declined, the matinee idol would follow Chatterjee in his car to make sure he reached home safely. This anecdote [comes] from none other than Chatterjee himself….

* Obviously Uttam is the cuddly toy and Soumitra is the up and down.
