Boney Kapoor was then handling the production of the movie Mr. India and he wanted to cast Sridevi for the lead actress role. However, Sridevi refused to play the role. She later demanded Rs. 10 Lakh for her role. Boney Kapoor reportedly offered her Rs. 11 Lakh. Anil Kapoor got really upset with Boney Kapoor for investing such huge money for the movie.
Later, when Sridevi suffered from a financial crisis and had no money for her mother's treatment, Boney Kapoor helped her during the tough time. He took care of her mother's treatment. This didn't go well with Anil Kapoor and he burst at his brother on the sets of Mr. India.
