The film, directed by Deepak Sareen also starred of child actor-singer Aditya Narayan, who is now better known as a singer and host. He revealed in an interview how Salman would often make him the judge of a fun singing competition the actor would have on the film’s sets.

Aditya, who had already started singing in Hindi films at a young age, was only nine or 10 years old during the shooting of the film and recalled the fun he had on sets as a child actor with Salman.

“He (Salman) is such a loving human being. I remember him being the nicest person, being very supportive. There have been so many times he taught me lines which he didn’t need to. He was already a big star at that time but if he ever felt that ‘Aditya is not doing so well, can do better’ he would literally teach me and say ‘repeat after me’,” Aditya said in an old interview

The film also had celebrity photographer Avinash Gowarikar as part of the team and Salman would often host singing competition with him. Aditya, being a singer’s son and a singer himself was made to sit on the judge’s seat and declare the winner.

“He (Salman) used to keep singing and have singing competitions on sets. You know Avinash Gowarikar was part of the film and these guys used to keep having a singing competition. They were both very average singers and they used to ask me to judge and I was just 8-9 years old,” Aditya said.\

The singer added, “I don’t know if they used to pretend to sing badly or if there voice was like that but both of them used to sing a lot. I used to be in a spot because they would make me the judge.” The film also starred Anupam Kher, Johnny Lever, Namrata Shikrodkar, Farida Jalal and Himani Shivpuri.
