Mukerji was quoted saying, “I think you have imagined it. I think it was in that particular screen. Also, the image is so dark, that I can’t see the face of the actor.” ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut SLAMS Karan Johar Over Reports Brahmastra Beats The Kashmir Files At Box Office; Actress Says, ‘Karan Ji Aap Kya Cheeze Ho’
