Mandakini later said the women would be replaced without notice. She said, “For example, if I liked a movie that someone narrated for me, and I said yes, I agreed to be in it. A few days later there was an announcement, but it was with another actress. Then I found out that they got someone else doing it with her 75,000 rupees because I asked for her 1.5 lakh out of her 10,000 rupees. So the producers are getting better deals, so they went to someone who wanted less. ”

Voh nahi karegi toh yeh kar legi, yeh nahi karegi toh voh kar legi toh jo apne ko sabse kam mein aaye, usko le lo.’ set (They were just interested in hiring a heroine. “We just need her for a couple of songs. If she doesn’t do it, hire someone else. Whoever has the lowest rates.”) .” That was the mindset of the director and producer).
