Mukkabaaz ke dauran, main Kashyap se kaha, “Main ussi breed ka actor hoon, main usme aa sakta tha.” Woh bole ‘aapka kirdaar bhi tha, aapko lena chahte the.”
Ravi Kishan further revealed, “Anurag ko kisi ne kaha “ye pehle aayega vanity van mein. Isko wine se do log nehlaayenge aur angoor khilayenge do ladkiyan. Tab ye tayyar hota hai, tab tak dopher hojaati hai,” ye sab stupidity thi. Adding, “Uske baad maine Mukkabaaz aise halat mein ki thi. Maine bola, “Tum dekh rahe ho. Tumhara chana-singh ka budget tha, usme hum film kiye tumhari.””
