Bad relationship with father did not improve
Naseeruddin Shah said in an interview to ‘Indian Express’ in 2014, ‘My relationship with Abba still hurts me. This is because the problems there are not solved. The relationship is not resolved. He never shut up. It was very bitter. But when I wrote about the bitterness with Abba in the book, I was able to get out of it a bit and see the relationship in a new light.’

‘I have done the same mistakes that Abba did to me with my children’
Naseeruddin Shah said it was his first conversation with his father when he left this world. Naseeruddin Shah realized what he missed in his relationship with his father when he became a father himself. Talking about this, Naseeruddin Shah said, ‘Back then it was not like putting your hand on your father’s shoulders or putting your hands around his neck. My father used to call his father ‘Sarkar’. He also had to make an appointment to meet him. So in my opinion, from his point of view, he considered himself very cold. As I consider myself. But I realized that I have done the same mistakes my father did to me with my children. He was behind in disciplining him, not about what he would or wouldn’t do in life. This is really a mistake.

‘Dil’ was discussed at Abba’s tomb
Naseeruddin Shah said, ‘The day I reached Sardhana, I went to that part of the land where Baba is now. That day I had a heart to heart talk with him about what I was going to do in the future. That day I talked to Abba about the finished film. I told about my dreams and doubts. He told about the gem, he knew nothing about it. I know he hears me. Suddenly my heart started to feel heavy. I began to realize that I was missing something. I suddenly miss Abba so much.
