And then talked and talked without ceasing: o you, about me, about him. He then me in one letter wrote: “We’re like two twin brothers who were separated thirty years ago,” said the widow Bodrov.
According to Svetlana, the husband asked her to become the second Director on the theme of the film “the Messenger”. For the sake Bodrov left the program “Wait for me”.

I told him once say: “Tell me honestly, Serge, you’ve seen at least one release after we are gone?” He said, “No, Sveta, no. At all.” And I said, “And I’m not looking too.” Well, it was painful. And all the talk about it is painful. And then this stroke, a serious condition. He didn’t want to see him, didn’t want to believe that he is a sick man,” – said Svetlana.

Currently Bodrov is working on the First channel. Son Sergei said the woman, very similar to it. “Even in the movements sometimes: when he starts to wriggle or dance, I right current breaks because I see him.
