Sooraj Barjatya's film 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' is still considered one of the cult films of Indian cinema. This film, starring many stars including Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Mohnish Bahl, Karisma Kapoor, Sonali Bendre and Tabu, created a stir when it was released in 1999. Saif Ali Khan's bubbly acting also won the hearts of the people. But do you know that in a song of this film, Saif Ali Khan had to give a shot after taking sleeping pills? What is the whole story, this was once told by Sooraj Barjatya himself in an interview given to Rajshri. Sooraj Barjatya told that when he was filming the song 'Suno Ji Dulhan', Saif Ali Khan had to take retakes again and again. Then Sooraj Barjatya felt that Saif is a very natural actor. Since this is a comedy, it should be done in one take.

Sooraj Barjatya had also told that earlier Saif used to be very nervous. There was pressure on him while working with big actors. He had said, 'Saif used to be very nervous and was doing such a big role for the first time and that too opposite such big actors, so he used to bear the pressure of both and worked very hard. He used to memorize the dialogues again and again.'
