It was a star-studded affair with the who’s who of the film industry and politics world attending the grand launch of actor-producer Sanjay Khan’s autobiography The Best Mistakes Of My Life.
The book traces the journey of one of the greatest actor-producers in Bollywood often referred to as the original ‘Khan’ of Bollywood.
Former Jammu and Kashmir CM Dr. Farooq Abdullah was the guest of honour at the grand launch. Also present at the event were Mallika Sanghvi, Sunil Alagh and Farooq Dhondy.
Actor Dia Mirza was the host for the evening and narrated wonderful anecdotes from the life of the legendary actor. Sanjay Khan’s family too were in attendance. Snapped at the launch were his daughters Sussanne, Simone and Farah, son Zayed and wife Zarine.
Sanjay Khan said,
“This is an extremely emotional moment for me. I had never really thought of writing an autobiography but the process made me relive most parts and has made me value my life, my friends and those who stood by me even more. It gives me so much happiness to be able to share this moment with all those who are so precious to me.”
Sanjay Khan also read out an excerpt from his book which was about his mentor and his greatest inspiration, the Late Shri Raj Kapoor.
The autobiography, The Best Mistakes Of My Life, has the actor-author at his candid best with a bare-all look at his journey in Bollywood and outside of it. From films to politics to his near-death accidents, Khan writes on all his life-changing moments.
Sanjay Khan is the recipient of the National Citizen Award twice, the Rajiv Gandhi Award for Excellence, the Gem of India Award for Excellence among many other honours.
