He also recollected the time he had gone to meet Soni, he had worn shoes instead of his usual sandals.

Recollecting the incident the filmmaker said, “whenever we fall in love we feel unworthy of the person whom you’re in love with. So I said how do I become worthy of her? Therefore I wore shoes and I felt so uncomfortable. She looked at me and that made me even more uncomfortable.

“I remember we were sitting down in a hotel in Worli and I told her, I said, ‘Don’t come very close to me I’ll destroy you’. There’s a dialogue we use in Raaz, “tum mere qarib mat aa main tumhe barbaad kardunga(Do not come close to me I will destroy you)” and she says “main barbaad hona chahti hoon( I want to be destroyed)“, Bhatt further added.
