Talking about the same, Shabana said:

"That was his way of showing affection. He was crazy. I will give you an example, we were shooting for Fakira and the song was Dil Mein Tujhe Bithakar. Now, I went on set before he arrived and Satyanarayan ji was doing the choreography and I saw that the moves were very intimate and I was very young at that time and I had tears in my eyes and I left the set and my heart was thudding because I really didn’t want to do those shots."
