Anupam Kher played a character called Disco Killer, but the role had to be chopped out, which left the actor heart-broken. “Nobody knew what was being made, to be honest. It was 7 to 8 hours long when it came to the edit table. We all thought he (Kundan Shah) was a mad man. I told Anupam, ‘Your role is cut.’ He said, ‘Please don’t cut it too much.’ I said, ‘No. It has been cut.’ He asked, ‘How much has it been cut?’ I told him, ‘The entire role has gone from the film!’ Vidhu Vinod Chopra recalled.
