“I was shattered,” Mishra says. “I could not go back to Mumbai. I wanted to be alone, so I went to Rishikesh and started working in a dhaba, making omelettes. The Sardar who owned the dhaba did not recognise me. But costumers would see me and ask, “Golmaal mein aap hi the na (Weren’t you in Golmaal)?” Then, they would want a photograph with me. Finally, the Sardar asked me who I was. Someone had told him I was an actor.”
