In an interview to 'Zoom', Meenakshi said, 'Jackie Shroff is someone I contacted after coming back. He has been inviting me to events in Mumbai many times. Maybe he wants me to stay involved and feel like I am in touch with everyone. This is his unique quality. In my first innings, I didn't really believe in making friends and hanging out with them, but it's not the case this time. Another friend I want to meet is Sangeeta Bijlani.'

However, Meenakshi is sad that she and Jackie could not create the same magic in other films as they did in 'Hero'. The actress said, “The success of 'Hero' could not be repeated because in the films that Jackie and I did after that, the audience did not get what they wanted. They did not get the romance of Jackie and Meenakshi, the story. I feel bad about this because with the right kind of films, he and I could have done some good films together.”
