Mukherjee also revealed Kapoor used to regale the cast and crew with stories. He had a lot of stories to narrate from his time in London, where he was carefree. He shared, “At times, Rishi was warm-hearted, sometimes he was bragging. Kapoor was a funny man, who mostly was in a jovial mood, and Alter used to address him as the son of a rich man. He had a childlike attitude and Nasir was very careful about taking any risks with him.”
