When I had come to Mumbai as a kid with parents I was most excited about seeing a shooting. My masa (mom’s sister’s husband) took us to Film City where the guards would not let us enter. After a loooooooot of cajoling and persuading by masa they gave in (he is one of those people who never gives up). Unfortunately the only serial being shot then was ‘Chandrakanta’ (anyone remember it?). But I didn’t mind… Then I saw this guy who comes in serials… he was not a very known face but I recognized him- Sooraj Thapar. He was the only celebrity (if I can call him that) we came across on the trip… umm, no… no… there was another guy- Mehmood’s son. His first movie was about to release and the promos were everywhere. We spotted him in a cab.
