Do you remember your first award?
I came into the industry with a lot of expectations. I did not have the conventional launch; I did not live the life of a normal newcomer because I was already working on a number of films even before my first release (Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, 1997).
I got my first Filmfare award for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (in 1999). To get such an award so early in my career was really prestigious for me. I still remember the excitement all around me.
