Vidya told Filmfare about the time she couldn’t take the flops anymore and broke down. She said, “Before HAK (Humari Adhoori Kahani), Ghanchakkar, Shaadi Ke Side Effects and Bobby Jasoos had also flopped. Mahesh Bhatt saab called me on Sunday morning saying,”Vidya I am sorry but HAK nahi chali.” After hanging up I began sobbing uncontrollably. Siddarth took me to the Sai Baba mandir in Chembur. It was raining heavily but the way I was crying in the car, it could compete with the downpour outside. I wondered what I was doing wrong now and what I’d done right earlier. Then I said forget it. You cannot negate the entire experience. You must enjoy the journey. If a marriage breaks up you can’t say that the couple never enjoyed happy moments together. You’ve got to be able to appreciate the good. That became a turning point for me.” Grab the latest copy of Filmfare to read the full interview.
