She further added, “They would ask, ‘Who’s he?’ I used to say, ‘He is the hero, Aamir Khan.’ They would then point to my image on the poster and ask, ‘Who’s she?’, and I would say, ‘This is me.’ And they would say, ‘No, no’.

She said, “In those days, it was not like today, when daily collection figures are public knowledge in a day. We would stand outside theatres to see if people were going in to watch the movie or not. And we slowly came to know that people actually like our movie”.
