But the real reason was Mazhar Khan was a unknown and unproven director. Next Mazhar approached Sunny Deol. Within 2 minutes flat Sunny told Mazhar he was busy and could not do his film. Next Mazhar approached his college days buddy, Anil Kapoor. Anil turned down the film saying he would do Mazhar Khan's film only if it was a solo hero film. Anil did not want to do a multistarrer. Finally Jackie called up Mazhar Khan and asked him to come over and narrate the film. Within minutes Jackie agreed to do the film.
