Bobby Deol was also shooting his film, Aur Pyar Ho Gaya. They were at the same location as I and called me over for dinner. That was Aishwarya’s first Hindi film, and it was the first time I actually interacted with her. And whenever she talks about it, she jokingly says, ‘I couldn’t understand a word of what you were saying’. Because here I was, a kid from an international boarding school then went to Boston. I must’ve had some really heavy accent at that point. And she was like, ‘What were you saying?’ My father advised me to learn Hindi before starting his acting career in Bollywood.”
