My final film with Kundan Shah was P Se PM Tak, 3 years ago. It was censored really badly and that indeed harm him really much. You know how he was, he knew a kind of film he wanted to make and how he would make it. He showed a side of Indian politics that all parties are informed with and he gave me such an excellent, strong purpose in that film.

When we came to Mumbai from Kolkata, all those years ago, it was Kundan who gave me work in Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi (1984). After personification 7 opposite roles in that show, he told me, “You’re an actor who we can give any kind of purpose to — positive, negative, anything”. After that, he began picking me for all sorts of projects — Doordarshan programmes, films and serials. But in 1987, for Wagle Ki Duniya, we was a final candidate. He said, “A lot of actors have auditioned for a purpose of Wagle in front of RK Laxman, though he doesn’t like any of them”. Kundan was there when we met Mr Laxman, and soon, Wagle would spin my whole life around. An different actor became a domicile name and even today, I’m addressed as Wagle.

In 1994, he gave me such a smashing purpose in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, and a strain method too. In a way, Kundan was Shah Rukh Khan’s coach too, only as he was mine. The kind of purpose he gave Shah Rukh during that time, nobody else would have given him. Shah Rukh became a star and did many some-more roles, though Kundan never forgot me — he took me along for each plan he worked on. Once, when he was receiving an endowment for his superb grant to cinema, he took a microphone and said, “Aanjjan, kahan hai tu?”

I knew his health was unwell when we were creation P Se PM Tak. If a artistic male can’t find work, it starts to bushel his life. He didn’t caring about money, he only wanted to make films. He was really austere about a calm and diagnosis of his films, this was well-known. Some of us would jokingly say, “He is not a director, he is a dictator, he doesn’t let us get creative”. And Kundan would retort, “Why don’t we emanate something with what I’ve given you?” We used to quarrel so much, generally during a creation of Wagle Ki Duniya. He used to make us do so many takes and retakes, not to empty us, though to see a operation of a actor.

I’m in Varanasi now and I’m only sad that we am so distant divided from Mumbai. For years, a garland of us, including me, attempted to find a approach to make a film with Kundan again. But we aren’t during that turn where we could squeeze a producer’s courtesy and make it happen. If Kundan had finished a film today, it would still be new and have something fresh. When we was operative with Hansal Mehta, he told me, “You have worked with Kundan Shah, we don’t need to check your work. We follow his grammar”.
