Later when Karishma rejected to play Nisha’s role in the film, makers approached Juhi Chawla, Manisha Koirala, Raveena Tandon, and Kajol but all of them refused to work as Nisha’s screen time was less than other female characters which were to be played by Madhuri.
All the actresses thought, Madhuri will take all the limelight which later proved to be wrong as Raj sir again approached Karishma and requested her to do the role. However, Karishma nailed the Nisha’s role in the film Dil Toh Pagal Hai and was praised by fans. Her character also became famous and she is still remembered for playing Nisha.
