It is no news that Ashutosh Gowariker‘s magnum opus Mohenjo Daro bombed at the box office. The film has raked in only average reviews from all over. We stumbled upon a video where Ameesha Patel made sly digs at newcomer, Pooja Hegde and went on to compare Mohenjo Daro with Kaho Na Pyar Hai. It’s rather surprising. Here’s what she said –
Of course main chahti hoon ki Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai 2 bane, par usse zyaada audiences chhahte hai ki woh bane. Log request karte hai, Hrithik aur mujhe, ki please come back together for Kaho Na Pyaar Hai 2, aur Mohenjo Daro ke promotions ke liye bhi, Pooja Hegde ne Kaho Na Pyaar Hai ke gaane pe Dubsmash kiya tha, aur Hrithik ne har jagah uske promotions kiye and I’m sorry the Mohenjo Daro didn’t do that well. Har film aise kaamyabi nahi paa sakti, with a newcomer. Kaho Na Pyaar Hai 2 banegi toh bumper opening hi hogi. Jaise Gadar adhuri hai mere bina, waise hi Kaho Na Pyaar Hai adhuri hai mere bina.
Of course, I’d want a sequel of Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai but more than anything, audiences want a sequel to the film. Fans have been sending in requests to me and Hrithik to come back together for Kaho Na Pyaar Hai 2. In fact, even during the promotions of Mohenjo Daro, Pooja Hegde did a Dubsmash on a song from the film and Hrithik has been promoting it everywhere. I’m sorry that Mohenjo Daro didn’t do that well, but not every film with a newcomer can achieve the kind of success Kaho Na Pyaar Hai did. If there is a sequel, it will surely have a bumper opening. Everyone on social media wants Hrithik and me back. Like how Gadar is incomplete without me, Kaho Na Pyaar Hai is also incomplete without me.
