Even as a child, the first thing that struck me about Shashi (Kapoor) uncle were his good looks. Boy, how handsome was he! I also remember watching Manmohan Desai’s ‘Suhaag’ when I was around nine years old. Though I cannot recall the exact scene, I knew I was disturbed when he was attacked by Amitabh Bachchan with a knife. When I realised it was a fake one, I heaved a sigh of relief

Funny Story – Saif Ali Khan got disturbed when Amitabh Bachchan attacked Shashi Kapoor in a film scene
‘Kaka’ in Punjabi means a small little baby. When I came into films, I was called ‘Kaka’ because I was young and small and with a bit of respect they added ‘Ji’. That’s how the world famous ‘Kakaji’ was born.
I was a lot into gaming until 5 years ago. I used to lie at home to play video games like Contra and Super Mario, and later, I got hooked on to to Play Station.
Once we were shooting on the outskirts of the city, the place resembled a haunted haveli and I decided to play a prank with the cast and crew. I scared everyone by telling them I’ve heard ghosts stories about this place, Charlie played along and both of us decided to play a prank. At 12 in the night, Charlie acted like she was possessed by a ghost, I acted all scared and went and told everybody about it. People got scared and freaked out. It was a lot of fun.
In 1975, during the outdoor shooting of Ramanand Sagar’s Charas (1976), we were to be in Malta for weeks. And since I (Hema) was to be shooting with him (Dharmendra), my father insisted on coming along with me. Often, the cast and crew had to travel together in a car. My father was not happy with this at all. He would order me in Tamil – so that Dharam-ji would not understand what he was saying – to sit in one corner while he would try and sit in the middle. But Dharam-ji would make up some clever excuse or the other to get in from my side, so that I would end up sitting in the middle and he would be beside me!
