He said, “Akshay ji jo hain wo great actor hain…dosti bhi achi hai humari…kaash aisa hota ki iss film mein inko thoda bohot le ke aa paate, toh naturally bohot fayda hota. Lekin script ne woh mauka hi nahi diya (Akshay Kumar is a great actor and we are good friends, but he and Vidya did not fit in the script. It would have been profitable to work with him)”
He also mentioned how the sophomore part has a different approach, as against the first part. “Ye film ke andar humne bohot alag kisam ka script pe kaam kiya hain…Rajpal ke alava sare log bilkul ek fresh approach liya hain (We have taken a different approach to the script. Everyone’s character is fresh except Rajpal Yadav,)” he said.
