Rajkumar Santoshi proposed to Meenakshi Seshadri during the shooting of Dimini, when she refused…

Meenaksha Seshadri has done many films with Rajkumar Santoshi. Few would remember that she was fired from the film when she was doing Damini. This was in the headlines at the time because she rejected director Rajkumar Santoshi’s proposal. Meenakshi said during an interview that people from the industry supported her a lot. The so-called rival actresses refused to replace Meenakshi in the film.

I thought it better to remain silent

Meenakshi Seshadri said in a Zoom chat that she was fired from Damini’s film for not accepting the offer. She says, Santoshji and I decided not to talk about this. This is now forgotten. But it’s important to stand up for yourself because no one should be told they don’t need to. I faced it silently. All I said was that I would not comment on this, it would be against my dignity to fight it. Which is not even a fight.

Did Madhuri get an offer?

Damini revealed how the Producers Guild supported her. She said, I respect everyone associated with the film, especially Santoshji because his vision was amazing. Eventually people say that actions speak louder than words, so the Producers Guild, Artists Guild and others come together to complete the film. Meenakshi also revealed that many actresses would have been approached for Damini after her eviction. They don’t know the name but think Madhuri Dixit will be among them. However, they all refused to do the film saying that only Meenakshi would finish the film.
