Back when she was a 14-year-old, Richa Chadha wanted to meet acting guru Barry John because "he had trained Shah Rukh Khan."

Finally, he took her on as a student and all those years of working hard under his tutelage culminated in Richa’s brush with Bollywood.

Says Richa, “When I was 14, I wanted to learn acting. I had heard he was SRK’s mentor.” The actress last met her coach along with Mira Nair at the premiere of Salaam Bombay.
