Director Pravesh Bhardwaj approached as many as 60 actresses for the female lead role in Mr Singh Mrs Mehta but they all turned him down for one reason – 'nude scene.' The female character in the film is a muse for a nude painting. So, she has to pose nude in front a man who is not her husband yet she gives a damn care to what the society would react.
The director received lots of abuses and embarrassment even from upcoming actresses for this script. However, Aruna, who was last seen with Vivek Oberoi in Prince, came to his rescue. She breathe new life to the film by giving the green signal.
