Meet Juhi Babbars greatest fan

Ali Asgar’s son Akbar, 4, regularly visits the sets of Ghar Ki Baat Hai (NDTV Imagine Fri-Sun at 9.30) and has become good friends with Juhi Babbar, who plays Radhika in the show. ALI says, “Recently, my son Akbar asked if he could come along with me to the sets. So I took him and my daughter along. They had a blast. Everyone was giving Akbar chocolates and he was playing around. The people on the sets, who are like family to me, pampered him a lot. Juhi and he were like buddies. He can remember her name but calls her pink-wali aunty.”

Juhi was also all praise for Akbar, “I love hanging out with kids. When Akbar came on the sets we had a blast. He was watching a scene on the monitor and when we asked him whom he’d like to act with, he immediately said that he would like to play the son of the pink-wali aunty.”

Akbar also has a small part in one of Akbar’s other shows, FIR. “The other day he came on the sets of FIR and both Kavita (Kaushik) and my director were enjoying his company. Suddenly Kavita decided to shoot a scene with him and our director agreed. He wasn’t very interested but did enjoy all the attention.”

“He watches my shows and complements me on my work. A few days ago he imitated my character from Ghar Ki …, in which I play a Bhojpuri guy. It was so funny.”
