Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor, claimed that he could not recognise his Damini co-star Meenakshi Seshadri when he met her after several years.

Reacting to reports that she will be part of Sunny Deol-starrer remake of Ghayal, Meenakshi Seshadri recently clarified that she was approached but nothing materialised.

The 62-year-old actor took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to share a photograph of Meenakshi and asked his fans to guess who she was. "Any guesses who this is? I didn't recognise her for a moment. What a lovely surprise. Name in 30 mins no hints," Rishi tweeted.

Rishi received many answers. He then replied: "99% got it right. Meenakshi Sheshadhari as always whenever in Mumbai pays us a visit unannounced. Looking gorgeous."

Rishi also told his fans and well-wishers about the Damini actress' whereabouts and tweeted, "Damini, MS, lives happily with hubby Harish Mysore and 2 kids, girl and a boy in Dallas, U.S. Visiting relatives,can work in film if a good role."

Rishi and Meenakshi have also worked together in films like Vijay, Sadhna, Ghar Parivar,Bade Ghar Ki Beti and Gharana.

Last week, Meenakshi was seen at an event in Mumbai and she quashed rumours that she may be seen in the sequel of her 1990 hit film Ghayal, saying she is "not interested in films at this point".

Meenakshi, who is now based in the US, said, "There were talks, but nothing materialised. Whatever you have heard so far, it's all just stories and not true. I am not interested in films at this point. I would like to do stage production and dance dramas."

"I didn't work in movies for this long because my kids and family are more important to me. I am thinking that the day my daughter graduates, maybe at that time I will think about something," she added.
