Karisma remarked on the broadcast regarding Dil To Pagal Hai. She said, “Every single heroine declined the film. The role was then offered to me…it was a dance picture, and they said, ‘No way can we dance beside Madhuri Dixit ji!’ I initially declined since it was a dance film starring Madhuri Dit and a competitive dance. ‘This isn’t going to happen,’ I said. The script was eventually told to me  by Yash ji and Adi (Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra). ‘You must accept the challenge,’ my mother said. if you are a Madhuri Dixit fan, you must do it. You put in the effort and you will succeed.”
