However that was not true, in an old interview, the actress’ mother Meeta Bharti revealed that when they weren’t present in the town it was Aamir who influenced the film’s director to cast Juhi Chawla and oust Divya Bharti. 

She said, “Many people believe that Divya lost Darr because she had issues with Yash Chopra, but that wasn’t the case. When Sunny was signed, he wanted Divya as his co-star. However, Aamir insisted on Juhi Chawla. Unfortunately, at the time, we were in America for some shows. Before we left, the announcement for Darr had Sunny, Divya, and Aamir. But when we returned, it was Sunny, Juhi, and Aamir. It seemed that Aamir, who was also working with Yash Chopra in Parampara, influenced the decision to drop Divya and bring in Juhi. Subsequently, Aamir was replaced, and Shah Rukh Khan was cast.”
