Veer-Zaara went on to become an instant hit!
"I was sitting with Yashji when ‘Veer-Zaara' was about to release and he was very worried about the film -- how it will perform and what will happen? I told him that it's his (Yash ji's) picture. It has to perform well," Manoj revealed.
"That day he (Yash Chopra) told me that if he had the formula for making a hit movie, all his movies should have been hit and he would have had no flop films," Manoj added.
