Talking about how she reacted to the news about Rishi Kapoor’s demise, Juhi said, “To me I was in shock. Those days I was in shock. I couldn’t believe this could happen. Because, just few months before, two months before, I was on the sets with him. In between too, I had met him.

On the decision of producer Ritesh Sidhwani to complete the movie, Juhi Chawla said, “What I find very touching was that after it did happen, he (Rishi Kapoor) passed away, Ritesh (Sidhwani) called me up. And he said, ‘You know what Juhi, we’re going to finish this film’.”

The actress added, “And I was like, Ritesh that’s so nice of you. How many people go that far. The easiest thing would have been to say okay, let it go, it was not meant to be. But to say, ‘No, we are going to make the effort’. At that moment he (Ritesh Sidhwani) had no idea how? He said, ‘I don’t know how, but we will work our way out. It is Chintoo Ji’s last work and we must have it out.”
