"The producer of 'Teesri Kasam'; Shailendra ji was also the writer of all the songs of the movie. Also, Raj Kapoorji charged a fee of Re 1 to act in the movie which turned out to be a huge blockbuster of its era," Annu said.

Talking about himself, the "Mr. India" actor said: "I started my career with Nautanki in helplessness as I belonged to a not so financially strong family. But because my father did not have enough money hence, I could not do IAS.

"I was left with no other option to choose from and that is why I started my career in acting by doing Nautanki shows like 'Laila Majnu' and 'Harishchandra'."
