But it was Karisma, who insisted they shoot the scene as planned. She even gave her own grandfather, Raj Kapoor's example and revealed that she has seen him pull women's hair. The director was quoted as saying: 

"She took me to a corner. She requested we do it. She said, ‘I’ve seen my grandfather do it sometimes. Forget his films. In real life.' When she told me that, I went to Aamir and said, ‘No one take this, one take that. Just straight up pull her hair'."

Raj Kapoor's personal life

Raj Kapoor was married to Krishna Raj Kapoor, but he was often linked to many actresses with, whom he worked. In fact, it was a past that kept haunting him all through his life. In a documentary about his life produced by Prasar Bharti, the legend addressed the rumours and explained the relationship he shared with his wife and legendary actress, Nargis, with whom he worked on 18 films. He added that 'nobody cheated anybody'. 

Talking about the same, Raj Kapoor revealed that he had drawn a line with Nargis. He was quoted as saying

"Right from the very beginning, from the word go, I drew a line. And it’s a very, very straight fact that my wife is not my actress, and my actress is not my wife. By my wife, I mean the mother of my children. So, my home life, somewhere or the other, was there. Krishna was the mother of my children. While here was my actress. She would share, and have that satisfaction of having contributed to my creativity. That is her satisfaction."
