My father bewared and just asked that the area be transformed. Bhaijan called my papa 'an oppressor' in court as well as agreed the Chopras (late BR Chopra was the supervisor). Darare padh gayee, rishtey toot gaye (connections were damaged). We enjoy and respect Bhaijan however I have just one inquiry, 'Aapki mohabbat yahan thi, aapki chahat yahan thi, phir aapne aisa kyun kiya (why didn't you agree your love)?'".

It needs to have tilted the apple cart for him and he efficiently persuaded Madhu that I was being impolite as well as arrogant. I told her in all genuineness and sincerity that I did not imply any offense and also it was in her rate of interest and also mine as artistes to maintain our specialist choices far from any kind of individual considerations. She was normally inclined to concur with her dad as well as she persisted in attempting to persuade me that it would all be sorted out as soon as we wed.".
