Actor Irrfan Khan, who was reportedly attacked with a kangri (pot filled with hot coal) in Kashmir recently while shooting with actor Shahid Kapoor for Vishal Bharadwaj's "Haider", says the incident didn't instil fear in him.

"The kangri didn't hit either of us. So, I can't really say whether it was deliberately thrown at us with the intention to hurt or not," he said.

However, Irrfan and the "Haider" crew remain unfazed by the incident.

"The incident is not really scary. What is really scary is what the local Kashmiri people have suffered for decades," said Irrfan, whose love for the Valley remains uncompromised.

"I shot one section of Vishal Bharadwaj's 'Saat Khoon Maaf' in Kashmir and I fell in love with the place. Then when Vishal offered me a cameo in 'Haider', I immediately accepted primarily for the pleasure of returning to the valley. Now, Vishal and I are planning another film to be shot here. This place is seductive and irresistible," he said.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
