In Fanney Khan, I’m playing a chapter in the narrative that I believe is intrinsic to the story. I’ve been approached for the remake of Raat Aur Din, which is a great opportunity, and what’s funny is while filming Shabd, Sanju sir (Sanjay Dutt) said he’d have loved for me to play the part, and I was very touched. We’re still working out the details. I’ve also been approached for a remake of Woh Kaun Thi?
You inspire multitudes and are part of the first family of Indian cinema. But do you have any role models or dream roles?
My mother is the only one I know inside out, so as a role model she’s the only one I choose to name — and it’s her values I’m imbibing consciously and subconsciously while raising my daughter. I’ve never shared dream roles…because what if someone writes it for you? Then what? You’ll have nothing to look forward to.
