The “Paa” star also took to his blog to express his views. He posted: “And 45 years of ‘Anand’! An incredible journey… A journey of finding self, of finding others, of learning craft, of witnessing the tornado’s of adulation for your co star, of anxious waiting for the result… Of that midnight meeting in the middle of the road on release and Gulzar’s words of encouragement… So much has passed and so many have gone by.”
