Madhuri Dixit, during an appearance on The Kapil Sharma Show, recalled how she once slipped into a single-screen theater to watch Tezaab. She revealed that when the song Ek Do Teen started, the audience started throwing coins at the screen.
Kapil Sharma shared his experience of watching Hum Aapke Hain Koun at a theater in Amritsar a year after the film was released. He said there were mirchi lights on the edge of the screen, which lit up whenever a song was playing.
Hearing this, Madhuri said times have changed and shared an anecdote of her own. “Everyone was telling me how popular my song Ek Do Teen had become and how fun it was to watch it on the big screen at the theater. So I decided to go watch it too. I went to the Chandan cinema which is a single screen theatre. I wanted to personally experience the reaction of the crowd. We went inside and sat down and I was in a burqa,” she said.
“I was waiting for Ek Do Teen and when the song started, we were sitting in the front row and behind us people were throwing coins at the screen! All that money was landing in our heads! she added.
Directed by N Chandra, Tezaab also starred Anil Kapoor and played in theaters for over 50 weeks. It was the highest grossing Bollywood film of 1988. Ek Do Teen is one of Madhuri’s most memorable songs.
