‘It was hardest to reveal that I have a daughter I’ve never met. I still hope to’

You’ve made many ‘disgraceful revelations’ – the first issue of Debonair that you wrote yourself under various pseudonyms, breaking the CIA mole story without due diligence, falling into a manhole to save five rupees, a Swiss girlfriend who refused abortion and a daughter born out of wedlock who you’ve never met – what was hardest for you to reveal?
This daughter thing was very hard. I showed it to my wife. Autobiographies are like your last will or testament as it were. I had to get this off my chest. I was also hoping, maybe even at this late stage, through some fortuitous set of circumstances, I might get to meet her, or she hears about me. That would be a very big gift to me.
