In our time, there was no day set aside for mothers and fathers.

My father (legendary actor-singer Kishore Kumar) was from the village and never subscribed to these urban laws of living.

His advice to me for the 35 years that I was with him was to believe in simple and high living and to avoid hypocrisy at any cost.

I've learnt everything about life from my father (actor-politician Raj Babbar). But the one lesson I've learnt from him as a professional actor is the value of time.

From him, I've learnt that when a producer pays for an actor's time, he can do what he likes with it. And from that came my biggest lesson, patience.
