Theirs is a match made in heaven as Janhvi once said. After seeing Sridevi in Solva Sawan, Boney was deeply impressed and decided to cast her in Mr India. Back then, her mother arranged her career and meetings, and he had to impress her.

I heard her figure and I said, ‘No, I will pay Rs 11 lakh.’ She thought I was a crazy producer from Bombay who offers more than she asked for! Well, that’s how I got close to her mother,” he revealed at the 2013 India Today Woman Summit. He went out of his way to make sure she felt comfortable on the sets and gave her the best costumes.
He couldn’t stop himself from falling in love with her, despite being married to producer Mona Shourie at the time. ‘Actually, I had confessed to my ex-wife that I am in love with her. I couldn’t contain myself,” he said. After seeing his perseverance, Sridevi realized that he was sincere and that he was not looking for a flirt. “Somehow things fell into place,” said Boney.
