Q. You’re nonetheless remembered for enjoying the lovable Pooja in Hum Aapke Hain Koun. What was that second you realised you’ve turn into part of a cult movie?
As soon as, I had gone to see Hum Aapke Hain Koun at Liberty theater with my brother. This was after a number of weeks of the movie’s launch. The sort of insanity I might see round was actually bizarre for me. Some individuals recognised me, although many didn’t know whether or not this was the identical particular person. On display screen you are inclined to look larger, and off-screen, a lot petite and that point I used to be super-slim. So individuals weren’t certain and seeing the group, I truly obtained scared and ran off from there. Afterward, I went to see Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) at Gaiety and HAHK was nonetheless operating there. My movie’s present was but to start out, and I had arrived earlier. The ticket counter man recognised me and stated, ‘Ma’am please don’t stand outdoors. We’ve been operating your movie for months now and I can’t assist you to stand right here.’ He took me as much as the projection room. And I noticed DDLJ from there (laughs). I didn’t perceive the sort of craze HAHK had at the moment. It was like an out-of-body expertise for me!
Q. Your music “Lo Chali Fundamental” has turn into part of Indian weddings. What number of occasions have you ever been requested to bounce on it in actual life?
Scores of occasions! Singing and dancing. And the funniest factor is that I don’t have a devar (brother-in-law) in actual life. So I by no means needed to truly do it in actual life for any devar’s wedding ceremony. However then as a result of I’m “jag-bhabhi” (common sister-in-law), everybody turns into my devar!
Q. What are your fondest reminiscences from the units of Hum Aapke Hain Koun?
Earlier than the shoot began, as a result of I used to be at all times focused on course, I used to go early and be with Sooraj ji (Barjatya) and his assistants whereas they blocked the day’s plan. I used to like that point. I have to say that on the finish of our 150-days taking pictures, we grew to become so near the crew. Over the last shot, Rajshri performed that music “Tujhse juda hokar”, and it was such an emotional second. One thing that I discover unforgettable. The music was (as if) speaking about us and saying thanks. I believed that was so deeply shifting. I feel that sort of feeling could be very uncommon within the movie trade.
