      While speaking with Mid-day, Subhash Ghai had earlier opened up on his 40-year association with Dilip Kumar and shared, "Among all my films with him, my favourites include - Vidhaata, Karma [1986] and Saudagar [1991]. He was always concerned about giving equal importance to the other characters. He'd say that it is always the story and characters that work in movies and not Dilip Kumar. [In fact], during Vidhaata, he would often ask me if I had done something to groom Shammi Kapoor's character. He [even] asked me to work more on Raaj Kumar's role in Saudagar. I realised [much later] what he meant - the story and characters matter, not the star."

      Notably, Dilip Kumar passed away on July 7, 2021.
