Rajat Kapoor says he faced a bizarre instance while casting for his film, 'Ankhon Dekhi'. Kapoor's first choice for the main role was Sanjay Mishra but when he couldn’t contact the actor, he approached Naseeruddin Shah for the same.

As luck would have it, when Naseer gave his nod for the role, Sanjay too returned and the director found himself in a fix.
The filmmaker-actor says, “I told Naseersaab I will give him some other role in the same film, but he said he will not do it. Then I wrote a long mail and he replied, saying Sanjay deserves it and all.” All’s well that ends well.
