An excerpt of a 2014 interview with @sanjaykapoor2500 .
“Shekhar Kapur was initially supposed to direct 'Prem'. But the problem with Shekhar is that he is a very lazy guy...He never wanted to start it and that led to my frustration. We then decided on #SatishKaushik to direct it, who started the film in 1989, but then he also had to direct 'Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja' in between, that finally released in 1993 and was a disaster. With that mind, he directed 'Prem' that finally released after 6 years of starting it in 2005. Again in 'Prem', I will tell you about my father. We had signed a singer Nalin Dave and we were all convinced that since it took 6 years to make the film, his voice was not sounding young enough for me any more and we should replace it with Udit Narayan’s. But my father did not change. He said, ‘Just like Sanjay has waited 6 years, Nalin has also waited 6 years. Now, it is their destiny.’ I was dating #Tabu at that time initially, but by the end of it, we were not talking to each other. It finally released when I was 31 and would joke and say, ‘I am the oldest newcomer.’ But this was destiny. 'Prem' did not work, but within 4 weeks, 'Raja' released with Madhuri Dixit and that became a blockbuster. Madhuri was such a big star at that time that I did not get the credit for it. It was also the time when Sri was with her mother, who was not well in the US and #BoneyKapoor was with her. Had Boney been here, things would have been very different for me as there was nobody to take care of things as far as I was concerned.”
