‘We make stars so we don’t need stars’
Rishi Kapoor was asked about this casting of Hina film in an interview. R. K. Do you think any actress would say yes to do a banner film? But Bhagyashree refused to do Hina’s film and hurt your ego. So she is making a comeback and you are making fun of her. Why don’t you let him go This question was asked by Rishi Kapoor. Rishi Kapoor answered this question in his own style.
Yes, we had approached Bhagyashree for the role of Chandni in ‘Hina’. She is now claiming that we approached her for another project. Nothing like that. We only asked him for the film Hina. We didn’t put any pressure on him to do this film. RK banner does not need a star to grow, we make stars. And yes..now she is doing such a great job. Romance with the mountains..that is, with the Himalayas. If she is happy now, then let her be happy. The answer was given by Rishi Kapoor in his impeccable style as to why Uga’s Rai Pahad should be made.
