Danny Denzongpa and his relationship with late actress Parveen Babi is known to all. The duo dated for more than four years during which they even lived together in the same house, a thing that was quite big in those days.
In his recent interview with Filmfare, Danny opened up about many things related to his relationship and how his friendship with Amitabh Bachchan provoked his lady love Parveen to cut off all ties with him.
Talking about why Parveen cut off all ties with him, he was quoted as saying, “One day she happened to read an interview where Amitji (Bachchan) had mentioned that I was a good friend of his. That was it. When I went to meet her the next time, she looked at me through the keyhole and refused to let me in calling me ‘his agent’ (Parveen was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and had developed irrational fears vis–vis several celebrities including Bachchan). She was frightened of me too.”
Years later, Danny did attend her funeral. “For someone who had so many filmmakers queuing up for her, there were none that day. Just a handful of us, including Kabir, Mahesh, Johnny Bakshi, Ranjeet and producer Harish Shah (Kala Sona).”
