Madhuri Dixit-Nene replies: "It's always wonderful to work with co-actors you've worked before." Karan Johar says about Madhuri-Sanjay's reunion: "I think they are artistes and see the films through its emotional chord. I am not a designer to get them ready for any movie."

Madhuri Dixit-Nene, who replaced Sridevi's role in the film, says: "To step into the role when you step as an actress is different. I missed her always on the set but when you begin working you look beyond. We, of course, miss her terribly."
Talking about Kalank, Karan Johar says: "Kalank kisi ke liye kaajal hai kisike liye dhabbaa (For some, its kohl, and for some, its a stain)... It's all about perception. For some, it's love, for some it's something else. THROUGH this film, you've got to decide whether Kalank is love or a taboo."
Varun Dhawan, who has also been a huge part of the Dharma family says: "This film is damn special because it's being produced by people who are close to me. With Karan, he's part of my family. I feel safe around him because I knew I'm going to have his back. During My Name Is Khan, Abhishek was my roommate as Assistant Director, he would iron my clothes so that I would look tidy on the sets. I am extremely happy to see him here. I've done this film for Abhishek Varman."
Alia Bhatt, who has shared a long journey of her career with Karan Johar says: "It's my 9th film with Dharma..thank you everybody for making this happen. I am going to try to be normal because I am nervous. We all wish ourselves but the film should do well because Abhishek deserves it. Now I am going to stop talking or else my makeup will get ruined."
Sonakshi Sinha shares her excitement working with the stellar cast of B-town. The actress said: "I am standing next to the most stellar cast and done this magnum opus. what else do you want? life set hai." Aditya Roy Kapur says how his Dharma journey has been so far! "It's always so beautiful to work with Dharma. He always had a clear vision for this film. The experience was amazing because of the clarity Varman had."
Madhuri Dixit says that Abhishek Varman is so good on the set that he's always dukhi (sad). it's very hard to please him. The actress also adds, "It just went marvellous for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it." In fact, Sanjay Dutt, who plays Alia Bhatt's father in the film says: "You know how close I was with your father. After so many years got to work with Madhuri ma'am and Varun. Alia and everyone. I am really happy."
