We know that stardom is not permanent, what is permanent is the love that we have got. We have grown up together in one institution, so we are both friends and competitors,” the 58-year-old said while promoting his new film, Vishwaroop, in the Capital.

But her success has been too slow for me to see and I am sure she also feels the same way.” Will her sister Akshara join films? “As far as my younger daughter is concerned, I have a feeling that she might also come into this industry. But you never know,” he said.
