I was sixteen and a half and Salman must have been 23. We were both brats. Salman and I are of the same nature-wise, we were almost brought up in the same house as Salim’s uncle and my dad used to work together. It was like we were continuing our fights from home. We fought throughout the film and Salman said ‘I’m not going to work with her’ and then we did Andaaz Apna Apna.”

I said yes. To that he said, ‘come outside, Salman (Khan) and I are passing by, just say hi to us’.
