In a throwback interview, Rani Mukerji had revealed that she initially refused to do ‘Saathiya’ and Yash Chopra had threatened to lock up her parents in a room until she agreed to do the movie.

While elaborating further, the Hum Tum actress shared that Yash Chopra had called her parents to the office. Her mother and father had actually gone to inform the filmmaker that Rani is not interested in doing this film. However, Yash then called up Rani and told her that she is making a very big mistake. The late director also locked the door of his room and said he won’t let Rani’s parents out till she said yes to the film.
'Saathiya' starred Vivek Oberoi and Rani Mukerji in lead roles. Shah Rukh Khan and Tabu appeared in extended special appearances.
