My first-ever meeting with him was in his office in Janak (Bachchan’s bungalow) for the script reading of Pink. To see my childhood hero, and not just mine, but that of billions of people, was the most memorable moment in my life. In his baritone, he said, ‘Angad, welcome on-board’. He also gifted me his shoes, which will be my most treasured gift, ever. Just to be known to the legendary Mr Bachchan is an honour in itself, then to have had shared screen space with him in a film which changed the society [is unimaginable]. Here’s to many, many more birthdays, sir.
