Showing one of the important scenes from the film of Jackie Shroff and Nana Patekar dealing with fire, Vidhu Vinod Chopra shared " the fire was real in the scene as those days there was no digital fire. For that scene Nana Patekar had refused to wear the fire suit as the actor felt that his acting would be ruined. "so I said I won't shoot if you won't wear the suit. After that he wore the suit so I said wear your pyjama as well" recalls Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
After that Vidhu Vinod Chopra left thinking that Nana Patekar would wear the suit but in reality, he did not wear. The fire was real with rubber solution and showing the scene he also said this is when the actor got burned.
