Director Dharmesh Darshan said that it was a mistake to make the 2002 Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor-starrer Haan Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya. Reflecting on his lead stars’ disintegrating romantic relationship during the making of the film, Dharmesh also addressed Amitabh Bachchan’s negative comments about it, and said that Jaya Bachchan actually liked the film.
Asked what went wrong with Haan Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya in an interview with Lehren Retro, Dharmesh said, “It’s not a film that I should have done. It’s one of their films which directors hand over to their assistants… It was the first and last time Abhishek and Karisma did a film together. Abhishek is a very sweet guy, but it wasn’t the same Lolo I’d seen during Raja Hindustani.” Dharmesh and Karisma had previously worked together on the Aamir Khan-starrer, which remains his biggest hit.
Asked about Abhishek and Karisma’s equation off-screen – their engagement broke apart during the making of the movie – Dharmesh continued, “Karishma was distracted, naturally, with the marriage thing… It showed in the film. I’m not a psychiatrist, I can’t interfere in their relationship. And I was hearing both sides, I’ll be honest with you. And I’m watching also…”
Reacting to Amitabh Bachchan calling Haan Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya an ‘old-fashioned film’, Dharmesh said, “Yes, he said that. But Jaya ji loved the film, oddly. She loved the aggression of the girl, who says you had a one-night stand, I’m divorcing you. She loved that.”
In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Dharmesh’s brother Suneel Darshan also spoke about Abhishek and Karisma’s equation on set, and wondered if they were actually ‘meant for each other’. He said, “They were not really the made for each other kinds. There was a constant bickering… Maybe that’s how some people are ‘made’. I always wondered are they really the made for each other kind of pair? Abhishek is a sweet fellow, and Lolo is a very nice person, but maybe some things aren’t destined.”
Abhishek eventually tied the knot with Aishwarya Rai, and Karisma ended up marrying her now ex-husband Sunjay Kapur.
