There are shoots, functions, press demands, and social obligations. And two stars’ schedules clashing leads to tensions. You have to sacrifice a lot. But we never had any problem when we were in India because I knew Parveen is a bigger star than me. I was coming up. It didn’t bother me because I was convinced I was going to be a big star also.”

However, he added that once they would journey to Italy, Parveen would discover it onerous to regulate to not being the ‘bigger star’. “But when we came to Italy and people started sidelining Parveen, I could see the resentment in her towards my stardom. She wasn’t used to being second fiddle to me. Suddenly, I was the star and she was not. This also upset her. Add to the fact that her mental condition was slowly deteriorating,” he added.

Parveen Babi and Kabir broke up within the late Seventies. By then, she was coping with a deteriorating psychological situation that might later be recognized as paranoid schizophrenia. However, Parveen continued to disclaim the analysis, calling it a conspiracy. She died in 2005, aged 50.
