 In an interview with The Big Indian Picture in 2013, Firoz revealed he was 15 when he first imitated Amitabh in front of others. And it was the film Deewar that inspired him to do so. He would stop at a paan shop and ask for a paan in Amitabh’s voice, prompting a crowd to gather around. Soon he began impersonating him at events and school.
