She further talked about nepotism and her experience with the filmmaker. She said that she came from nowhere and that it was Mahesh Bhatt who gave her a big break. She praised him by saying that he has launched the careers of many writers, actors and musicians who had no Bollywood connections.

She further questioned Kangana as to why she chose to work after the incident again in Raaz the mystery continues. She said, “If such an incident had happened with her and she had a problem with Mahesh Bhatt, why did she work with Vishesh films at all, is a question she needs to ask herself.”
