In a recent interview with news agency ANI, veteran actor, Ranjeet revealed some shocking details about the movie, Prem Pratigya. Talking about the same, he shared that Madhuri Dixit refused to do a molestation scene for the film and started crying. However, Ranjeet didn't know about all that as he was busy having fun on the sets. Elaborating on it, the veteran actor said:

“She (Madhuri) started crying and refused to do the scene. I was unaware of the situation… some art director had told me. There was a Bengali art director. Our director was Bapu, he was from South. I used to have fun on the sets, like when I would tell my co-stars, ‘darling thoda udhar muh karo mai change kar leta hu’. I was not even used to going to the makeup room. Very normal and all that I was accepted like that; otherwise, they would say I’m fake.”

Ranjeet further recalled what exactly happened on the sets and shared that he was supposed to do the molestation scene with Madhuri on a handcart. While he was waiting for the actress to arrive, she did not show up, and nobody even told him about what was happening. Ranjeet added:

“Then, what happened, there was a handcart. Madhuri’s father in the movie was poor and used to pull a handcart. The molestation scene was on the handcart. I was waiting for her, but nobody told me what was happening. Ultimately, she agreed.”

Madhuri Dixit was embarrassed about her role in the film, Vardi

Madhuri Dixit delivered a powerful performance in the iconic film, Vardi, alongside Sunny Deol and Jackie Shroff. While the trio's pairing solidified their stardom, the 1989 film, Vardi, led to an unexpected embarrassment for Madhuri. Although Vardi was a hit, there were some scenes of Madhuri in the film in which objections were raised. As soon as the film was released at the box office, Madhuri felt very embarrassed. Firstly, the actress had a supporting role, portraying a cancer patient, with reduced screen time. Moreover, she also did multiple bold scenes with Jackie, depicting intimacy between them, which led to further discomfort. Also, there were multiple cuts in the film, leaving Madhuri embarrassed by the final portrayal of her character.
