Then, on May 25, 1984, my first film was released and in the last 36 years, I have done 517 films. But, I have always wanted to feel intelligent. So, I said what should I do? So, I thought I should become an author. But, I think in Hindi and how do I become an author. So, the best thing will be using my experiences by penning them down. So, that's how my first book, The best thing about you is you came."

A book that has come from within me. This is the first copy sent to me by my publishers @hayhouseindia on a very auspicious day, Diwali in New York. Writing it changed my outlook towards life and people. Hope it makes a difference in your life too. Meri toh Diwali ho gai (I got my Diwali) #YourBestDayIsToday #Motivational #ThirdBook."
