Rakesh Bapat says that ‘Amitabh Bachchan’s film’ Aks’ was released on July 13, 2001. It was being screened before our film. We were waiting in the parking area when my eyes fell on Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Rakesh Omprakash Mehra. Jaya ji saw me and came to me and said, you are a father, right? I am very proud to meet you. You are a very promising actor. I always tell Abhishek to see you. The refugee was released a few days ago. He called Abhishek and he hugged me and said ‘Dude look at your promo all the time my mom calls me and says look at this boy, it’s your competition’.
