Recently when we caught reveals that if he were to pen an autobiography, it would be inspirational. He says, “My autobiography will be a more of a comic than a tragic affair. I look at people with lot of love and affection. There will be a lot of inspiration for the strugglers.”

The 72-year-old director, says the star system hasn’t changed. He says, “When a film flops the directors are blamed. But, when a film becomes a hit, the star takes away all the credit. This trend has been following for ages.”

Pardes will be screened at New Excelsior on 5 November.  “It feels like I directed this film yesterday. SRK loved the story and he agreed to do the film. During casting, the producers were keen to cast Madhuri and Salman … the original wish list was SRK, Salman and Madhuri,” he says, adding, “But I put my foot down and said I only want new comers opposite SRK. I convinced them and then went ahead with the film.”
