New Delhi: If we talk about villains in Bollywood, veteran actor Ranjeet was the most dreaded of them all. The 82-year-old star not only exuded a gangster vibe but also carried a criminal aura, unlike his true persona. But, did you know his presence on the sets of Prem Pratigya made actress Madhuri Dixit reduce to tears once?

In a recent interview with a leading news agency, Ranjeet revealed that the 56-year-old actress cried and refused to do a molestation scene on the sets of the Bapu directorial. He further disclosed that he was unaware of the situation at that time, until the art director informed him.

Ranjeet stated that, as villains, molestation was a part of their job. He explained that the molestation scene was on a handcart as Madhuri’s father in the movie was poor and used to pull it to earn a livelihood. Ultimately, she agreed to do the much-talked-about scene. Ranjeet added that Veeru Devgan was the fight master of the film. He instructed them to keep on performing as he would keep the camera rolling.

For her excellent performance in Prem Pratigya, Madhuri received a nomination for Best Actress at the 35th Filmfare Awards. The film also featured Mithun Chakraborty in the lead.
