More nostalgia

Saturday, February 18, 2012

FOR Pradeep Chandra, the visit to Mehboob was a quick saunter down memory lane, bringing back a load of nostalgia. “The  lawns were where I met Rajesh Khanna for the first time and photographed him, He asked me to come back the next day with his pictures and liked his portraits so much that he recommended me to Raj Khosla who was making Do Raaste and was facing some problems with his still photographer. Raj Khosla hired me instantly and for almost  a year, this studio was a place I had to go to every day.

“On these lawns, I photographed Dev Anand who had his office here and would come in his Fiat, struggling actor Shatrughan was a regular since he was being considered for Mera Gaon Mera Desh, Mumtaz, Asha Parekh, Shashi Kapoor and many more.”

It’s a comfort to know there are still places in Mumbai, where Bombay can be evoked so easily.
