BOLLYWOOD: My first shot was for Aakhri Mughal. Both Abhishek Bachchan and I were to make our debuts in the film and I remember how scared I was to have Amitabh Bachchan on the set, watching us give our first take. I kept asking Abhishek to make him leave and he would say exasperatedly, “He is my father, how can I ask him to go!”
I wasn’t sure if I could act when JP Dutta and Jaya Bachchan approached me with the film. I couldn’t say “no” to them. But I’ve to admit, I was really
happy when Aakhri Mughal was shelved! Yes, I know I’m a bit of a weirdo, I always have been one.
