The story was narrated to these actresses

In an interview with Bollywood Thikana, he said, “When we were doing the film, I had names of many actresses in my mind. Aishwarya, Kajol. There were a lot of them. I had to narrate the script to them and two-three of them agreed. Listened to it and they liked it. Some of them also rejected it. I don’t want to go into why they rejected it.”

Had to choose between Amrish Puri and expensive actress.

He further revealed how he chose Amrish Puri instead of casting a bigger actress and said, “G told me that he had talked to an actress who had agreed to act in it but it was too much money. But the budget was less, so they told me that I have to choose between the heroine or Amrish Puri. So I chose Amrish ji and said that I will cast a new heroine. Amrish ji was very important. The film was not possible without him, we had to become this powerful Ashraf Ali. Then we decided to take a new face.”
