During a question-answer segment on the show, Backbenchers, the show’s host, Farah Khan asked Shilpa Shetty Kundra to reveal the reason why she said ‘yes’ to her husband, Raj Kundra’s marriage proposal. Before the actress could give a proper answer to Farah, Anil Kapoor quipped in and joked, saying, "Paise phalaiye the". The answer left Shilpa, and Farah burst out in laughter. However, after laughing out loud, Shilpa said, "Paison ke alawa baahein bhi phaliayi thi", and once again, Anil dropped the mic with his hilarious statement. The actor said, "Baahon mein paise the na", leaving everyone in another round of laughter.

There’s no denying that Anil Kapoor proved the mettle of his sense of humour, but a lot of credit goes to Shilpa Shetty Kundra for taking it in the best possible manner. However, further in the segment, it was the show’s host, Farah Khan, who gave it back to Anil on Shilpa’s behalf. The producer told Anil that he wasn’t wealthy when he got married to his wife, Sunita Kapoor and asked him to reveal how he managed to woo Sunita back then. After taking a pause, the actor once again gave a thunderous response and left everyone in splits. He had said:

"Kyuki Sunita ke paas paisey the."
