I prefer to operate the camera and was looking at the frame when I saw one man running in the other direction. I called him and asked why he did that, and told him ‘teri wajah se one more hua shot, idhar hi jana. bhaag ke jaa (It was retake because of you. Run in this direction).’ I then focused on him but found him running in the opposite direction once again.”

The ace action director, furhter added, “I ran towards him aur kaan ke neeche diya (slapped him). I then kicked him out of the film. It was the same Kapil Sharma.” The film featured Sunny Deol, Ameesha Patel and Amrish Puri in stellar roles. Kapil had spoken about the same on his show when Sunny Deol was a guest and told, “When I saw an empty space, I ran. He (Tinu) grabbed me and gave me a sweet slur. I told him that when you spoke action, I ran. They chased me away; I ran into the crowd again. The film released, and I took my friends to the theatre to show me my scene. My scene was cut.”
