I went to his office in the early 2000s to look for work, obviously to have the opportunity to work with him. He met me, we sat, we talked for about 10-15 minutes. He said, ‘You know Fardeen I don’t think we can work because I don’t see that fire in your eyes.’

He never told me that I wanted to be cast in Black. I am hearing this for the first time. But I am very grateful to have had this opportunity to work with such a skilled craftsman. It is a wonderful learning experience. It has enriched me on many levels,” added Fardeen Khan.
