Well, the lead actress is Mayoori. During the 1990s, the actress went on to act in a few more movies that were superhits then she movies to Television before getting married to NRI Adhitya Dhillon and moving to the US.

After moving to the US, she pursued her higher studies, finished the MBA in marketing and finance in City University of New York-Baruch College – Zicklin School of Business.

Interestingly she left IIT Kanpur to star in movies.

In an interview, she said: I did about 16 films most of them never got released. The 90s weren’t a great time for the actresses as all they had to do is dancing around the trees. I wanted to do something else.

She also added that the actress career lasts for just ten years and they should have a backup option.
