Fortunately, my films have connected with the people and they speak my dialogues even today. In terms of Bollywood in 2000s, I have not been able to come out with good films and that is one of the reasons why I am myself directing Ghayal Once Again."
The Damini actor also confessed that he was not offered any good scripts after Gadar and Indian, which left him with limited choices.

I could not get that kind of subject. The industry underwent a change with multiplex culture coming in, but I could not adapt with the changes."
Ghayal Once Again releases on 5 February 2016.
