Nevertheless, she abandoned the movie, citing the fact that she was not yet prepared for the screen.

The next year, rumors began to circulate that she had been cast in Girish Malik’s upcoming film Torbaaz, which also starred Sanjay Dutt. On the other hand, Malik’s assertion that Lokhande will not participate in the production of the film disproved the rumors that had been circulating.
