How did you meet Vishal Bhardwaj?
We studied in the same college. Vishal was a year junior to me. He knew me because of my music background -- I topped the university as well. But I did not know him at first.
In his final year of college, his father Ram Bhardwaj passed away. He was a lyricist, so Usha Khanna and Laxmikant-Pyarelal were regulars at his home. Vishal was always inclined towards music, so he started composing music.
Vishal and I got to know each other during the college annual function, and friendship turned into love.
