Reminiscing about her relationship with Feroz Khan, Saira Banu took to instagram to share a few anecdotes about their time together

"After JUNGLEE'S stupendous sucess, I was offered a spate of B.R. Films including “WAQT” and “HUMRAZ” but it didn't work out. Years later, Yashji behested me to do “AADMI AUR INSAAN” a love triangle featuring Dharmji, Feroz, and myself.

This is the first time I worked with Feroz, industry’s style icon, dashingly handsome and famous for his sophisticated looks. He was well-mannered and soft-spoken. The first shoot of “AADMI AUR INSAAN” featured an ensemble of us all in a glamorous song number, where Mumtaz is singing “Zindagi Ittefaq Hain” seductively twirling around the heroes and me. It was fun to watch the happy-go-lucky atmosphere of the set where old friends, Feroz and Mumtaz kept needling each other with witticisms and humour. Dharamji and I would roll with laughter at this game of one up manship between the two.

Whenever we met at functions or studios at shooting, Feroz would admire Appaji's (Naseem Banuji) beauty and praise the beautiful apparels and jewellery she designed for me, particularly the feathery pink outfit for the ice-skiing scene to which he exclaimed. “This is too beautiful, God! This is Cute”.

Many films were lined-up for Feroz and I but we could only do 2 films together. Later, “KALA SONA” was offered to us but I fell ill suddenly and had to forgo this.

When Feroz became a Producer, Director, he visited me and my mother as he wanted me to be the lead in “APRADH”, and do a westernised role in his ambitious project but I was already doing a similar role in Manoj ji’s “PURAB AUR PASCHIM” that was especially written for me by Manoj ji and he had said if I didn’t do it he would scrap the script.

Feroz and I shared similar home atmospheres. I remember a meeting, where his staff members were shuffling coins on the table and Appaji had harkened them to wash the coins before spilling them on the table because coins go everywhere and are dicey. Suddenly, Feroz said, “My God! Appaji you are doing exactly what my mother does. She is also finicky about little things, especially cleaning coins before they are handled in the house by anyone!”
He was crest fallen as I couldn't do “APRADH” and always shook a finger at me in mock despair!"
