“I met Sathya Sai Baba for the first time 55 years ago. I was only 12 years old when I met him in Lucknow, and at that time he listened to me and my father’s hymns and blessed us. Since then I’ve been I was in touch. I went to his ashram in Puttaparthi several times to meet him. I also met him in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Ooty.
I think I would be able to do justice to this role because I knew him well. I am one of his followers, so I knew how he sits, walks, talks and talks with his followers, because I have seen him doing all this.
