The film was titled ‘Ran Kshetra’. The industry thought that after ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, another blockbuster was on the cards. But soon everyone’s hopes shattered as the film was shelved within days of being announced. So, what actually happened? Actually, soon after signing the project on dotted lines, Bhagyasree decided to get married with her boyfriend Himalaya Dasani.
