Hrithik Roshan and Ameesha Patel’s debut as well as super-duper hit film Kaho Naa Pyar Hai made these two actors an overnight sensation. The movie opened to a grand opening at the box-office, well as it is said that with great movies comes interesting stories. Same way while making of this movie Rakesh Roshan have an interesting thing to tell about.
As per reports, Ameesha Patel was not the director’s first choice for the lead in the film instead it was Kareena Kapoor who was going to debut with Hrithik Roshan. However, because of one incident, Rakesh replaced the actress with Ameesha. Well, as per sources, when Kareena bagged the film she was quite excited to work on this project but unfortunately her mother Babita did not like the working style of the director.
The story goes like this, the first schedule of the shooting in Versova was going to happen. In this, Bebo had to shoot for a song sequence, however when Babita got to know about this she approached Rakesh and asked him to shoot the scenes first and then the songs, but he refused as it might have caused him a huge loss.
Soon after this Babita started interfering during the shooting, this left Rakesh irked and went up to her to make her understand that Kareena is doing a good job. However, her mother didn’t pay heed to any of his words and was just not satisfied with the shooting and called him unprofessional.
On seeing this Rakesh once stated, “Kareena is a newcomer and should be treated like one, she cannot call the shots just because she’s Karisma’s sister. Babita should have spoken to me like a newcomer’s mother and shouldn’t have demanded more than she owed.” Following this Kareena was dropped out of the movie and Rakesh roped in Ameesha.
