Meera also opened up about her relationship with Mahesh. He said, “He had a sense of entitlement towards me. Talking to other directors, he could never accept it. I got offers from big directors like Ram Gopal Varma, Mani Ratnam, Subhash Ghai. He did not take it well. He wanted to work only under his banner. One night I went to meet Subhash Ghai at the hotel. After knowing this, Maheshji got so angry that he slapped me two or three times. Screamed a lot.
