A lot of Kajol's character in Siddharth Malhotra's debut film We Are Family is inspired by his grandmother, yesteryears actress Bina Rai. And he says he would have loved his grandma to watch the film, specially since he saw a lot of her spirit in Kajol.
Siddharth lost his grandmother, the Anarkali, Ghunghat and Taj Mahalactress, just months before his film was to be completed. Now he cannot bear to look at his film without wondering what his doting 'dadi' would think of his work, and specially of Kajol.
Says the emotional director: "I remember dadi never used to go out of the house. But when I started the film she came to Filmistan studio to give the 'mahurat' clap for her favourite grandchild... me!"Eerily my first shot was on the same floor of Filmistan where she had shot her two most well-known films Anarkali and Taj Mahal. She came back to the same spot at Filmistan after 40 years just to bless me, my film and Kajol. I was her first grandchild and therefore her favourite."
