Arshad Warsi Reminisces Old Times

ABCL, the production firm run by Amitabh Bachchan, introduced Arshad Warsi in Tere Mere Sapne. Their debut feature film, directed by Joy Augustine, also starred Chandrachur Singh, Priya Gill, and Simran as newcomers. The actor, who turns 55 on April 19, described how he landed his first role as a result of a chance encounter with the director and a significant choice made by Amitabh Bachcan’s wife, actress Jaya Bachcan. She approved him for Tere Mere Sapne since she thought he looked good in his first photo shoot.

In an earlier interview, Arshad said to Lehren, “Joy Augustine was at my house at a dinner party. He had come with one of my friends. I had met him twice before that. He was observing me. He found me a little interesting; he called me up the next day and said, ‘I’m directing a film for ABCL. Would you like to act in it?’
