During that film, he used to make all the other actors wait till Dharmendra ji arrived on sets to start the shoot. And I used to get very angry at him as I was too working on some other films at that time. So we started with a love and hate relationship. I used to get very upset with him and he used to console me. Uss Chakkar Mein Kaise Lafda Ho Gaya Samajh Nahi Aya (Don't know how we fell for each other due to that)."

    Aruna Irani furthermore added that she did not know about Kiku Kohli's first wife and kids. The Khel Khel Mein actress said, "He even didn't tell me that he was married when we met and that's how I fell in love with him.
