My uncle, Asjad Nazir, knows lots of famous people and took us (my mum, my brother and I) to the film set for Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, where Bobby Deol was shooting a scene on his ‘four looks.’ He would start off facing forward and when the director said first look, he looked to his right. Then the director said second look and he faced forward again from where he started. His third look was little to the left and his fourth one all the way to the left! While he was acting he looked very cold and was shivering – acting is not always as glamorous as you may think.
When he finished shooting, my uncle interviewed him while we listened to Bobby’s answers – I was sitting next to him! At the end of the interview I was planning to ask him something and when it came to the end, I asked: “Bobby Deol Sir, please may i have you autograph.” By the time I left i had a piece of paper that was signed by him saying: “To Aaliyah, lots of love, Bobby Deol….
Next it was time to meet Sunny Deol, his older brother. We took a walk to a hotel where Sunny was staying and met him inside his room. Then my uncle interviewed Sunny Deol. At the end of the interview, I also asked him if I could have his autograph. By the time I left, I had a piece of paper that was signed by Sunny Deol saying: “Dear Aaliyah, wish you all the best, love Sunny Deol.”
