Tamas happened many years ago. I was in NSD repertory in Delhi when Govind-ji (Govind Nihalani, director of Tamas) called up. He wanted me to do the serial. So I came to Mumbai and started shooting in Chandiwali. Govind-ji likes to do quality work with attention to detail so I enjoyed working with him. In the process I met some very fine actors like Bhisham Sahni-ji who was also the writer of the book. There was Dina-bahen (Pathak), Om Puri and all. So it was a lot of fun.
