The actress said, "Something had happened. Because of this, I decided I would not do the film. I was not really in that state of mind. So, I told them I am not in that mind space, so they should cast someone else. I even suggested two or three names of other actors who can be casted. I would not name them. Vikram (Malhotra, producer) called me and said that whenever I was ready, they would take the film on floors. He adjusted everything and waited for eight months."
