As luck would have it, when Naseer gave his nod for the role, Sanjay too returned and the director found himself in a fix.
"When Sanjay had become unavailable and unreachable, I approached Naseer sir. But fortunately or unfortunately he (Sanjay) came back," Kapoor told IANS.
Directed by Kapoor, "Ankhon Dekhi" is slated for a March 21 release.
"Meanwhile, Naseer sir had read the script in three days and he liked it and by that time Sanjay had come back and I must say it was a bad timing, terrible timing."
"But Sanjay was my first choice and I went through a lot of shit. I told Naseeruddin Shah I will give him some other role in the same film, but he said he will not do it. Then I wrote a long mail and he replied nicely, saying Sanjay deserves it and all. But it was an awkward moment."
A quirky film, "Ankhon Dekhi" revolves around Raje Bauji (Sanjay), a man in his late 50s, living out a dreary but eventful life in a small house in old Delhi, in which he lives with his extended family.
