The film failed to impress the audience but its song Sheila Ki Jawani was a huge hit.

Taking to casting director Mukesh Chhabra on a show called The Bombay Dream by Mashable India, Farah revealed the reason why she did not want to cast Katrina in the film. “Pehle to main obvious choice se rehti hun thoda door. I think the only time I made an obvious choice was jab Maine Tees Maar Khan mein Katrina Kaif ko liya. it was obvious because wo Akshay Kumar ke saath 6-7 movies kar chuki thi and I was very against ki mujhe usko nahi lena hai. but wo ghoom ghaam ke wohi aayi picture mein,” she said.

For those unaware, Tees Maar Khan starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif was partly written by Farah’s husband Shirish Kunder.

In an old interview, Farah recalled that she did not feel like stepping out of her house after facing flak for the movie. According to her, although she was a fighter and survivor, she wanted solitude to bounce back from the criticism. Farah Khan told Bombay Times, “I still recall how Tees Maar Khan was ripped apart and though people said a lot of things about it, the film made money. I’ve been a fighter and a survivor. After Tees Maar Khan, I didn’t want to step out”.
