When a broker approached several top film producers and production houses with Samir Karnik’s story of Yamla Pagla Deewana and the Deols finalised as the film’s lead players, the producers looked down upon the project as an unviable one. They argued with the broker that producing a film with the Deols – Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby – in it was a downright mistake. One producer even said to the broker, “Don’t take this project (Yamla Pagla Deewana) to any other producer. This film can kill him.” After receiving such negative response from producers, including Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Limited, Babloo Pachisia, Bharat Shah, Balaji Motion Pictures, UTV Motion Pictures, Gordhan Tanwani, Shemaroo and Smita Thackeray, the crestfallen broker decided to call up Nitin Manmohan, producer of such movies as Insaaf, Bol Radha Bol and more than 20 others.

Interestingly, when the broker called up Nitin Manmohan, the latter hung up on him. Relentless, the broker kept calling him continuously for almost half an hour more but the latter’s phone was switched off. The broker, convinced that Nitin Manmohan couldn’t behave in such a manner, kept calling back. Finally, it was Nitin Manmohan who called him back after two hours, and explained that he was entering the Chief Minister’s office when the broker had called and so he couldn’t talk then. Relieved, the broker pitched to him Samir Karnik’s story and proposal. Immediately, Nitin Manmohan agreed to produce the film, his first after a gap of several years.  Two days later, the film’s unit had left for shooting in Patiala. The rest, as they say, is history.
