Released in 1989, Prem Pratigya was a romantic film starring Mithun Chakraborty and Madhuri Dixit in the lead.

Veteran actor Ranjeet has revealed some shocking details about the 1989 film Prem Pratigya, which also starred Madhuri Dixit. In a recent interview, Ranjeet revealed that Madhuri cried on the set and refused to do a sexual abuse scene for the film. He shared that although he was waiting for the actress, she did not show up and no one told him what was happening.

“She (Madhuri) started crying and refused to do the scene. She was not aware of the situation… some art director had told me. There was a Bengali art director. Our director was Bapu, he was from the South. I used to have fun on the sets, like when I would tell my co-stars, ‘dear thoda udhar muh karo mai change kar leta hu (look the other way, I will change)’. She wasn’t even used to going to the makeup salon. Very normal and all that, they accepted me like that; otherwise, they would say I am fake,” Ranjeet told news agency ANI.

Recalling what exactly happened on the sets, Ranjeet continued, “So what happened was that there was a pushcart. Madhuri’s father in the film was poor and he used to pull a pushcart. The scene of sexual abuse was in the handcart. She was waiting for her but no one told me what was happening. In the end she agreed.”

The veteran actor also stated that these types of scenes are “part of our job.” “Veeru Devgan was the master of wrestling. He said we will keep recording the camera: ‘beech mein camera cut nahi hona chahiye (scene should not be cut in the middle)’… Sexual abuse is part of our job. The villain is not bad. With every heroine, it was mandatory,” he added.

Prem Pratigya is a romantic film that was released in 1989. The film starred Mithun Chakraborty, Madhuri Dixit, Ranjeet, late Vinod Mehra and late Satish Kaushik.
