For the uninitiated, Rajkumar Santoshi made his directorial debut with GHAYAL starring Sunny Deol and also made two other films like GHATAK & DAMINI with him. The duo had a fallout when Santoshi and the Deols both made a film on Bhagat Singh and released it same day. However, both the films fared poorly at the Box-office.
However, the duo had patched up and even declared of doing a film together. In fact Santoshi was supposed to work on GHAYAL RETURNS, the sequel of GHAYAL, with him but even that film got shelved.
