"My mom and Krishna aunty were best of friends and Chimpu (Rajiv Kapoor) and I grew up together... Chimpu had a car and would travel abroad, right from when he was a year old. But our parents brought us up in a way that we never had any complexes. I remember Chimpu became an actor very quickly. Prior to his becoming an actor, when we went out together, if he paid the bill two times, I would pay it once. But we would go to ordinary places then that both of us could afford," read an excerpt from Sanjay Kapoor's interview.
