It’s about my six decades in Mumbai. I came here in ’43. Got my break in ’45 and saw Independence being ushered in. A life known and unknown to the world. Yet, it’s not just the life of a man, a selfish life, but the life of a country.
Why the name Romancing with Life?
You know, even the fact that we are talking shows a degree of involvement. That’s what my life has been about, romancing with films, people, literature, my parents, my co-stars.
Will we get to read about your heroines too?
Read it and see.
Can we expect to see a film on your book?
Now that’s a smart question. Is Dev Anand’s life worth filming? Why not? But only if I agree, only if I approve of the person filming it.
If your film Guide were to be remade, which actor would be suited for your role?
I haven’t thought about that.
Has Bollywood evolved in all these decades?
Very little. The focus remains money, the temperaments remain the same....
