Vidya recalls her time during the shoot of "Parineeta", her debut film which also featured Sanjay.

"We have worked together in 'Parineeta' and I still remember when we were doing the first scene, I was very nervous that I had to give the shot with Sanjay, who is so tall and well-built and all that.

"But he has got the kindest and the most gentle face. He was so helpful and I will never forget that. For me, the first superstar will always be Sanjay Dutt," she added.
