advance ki Y Juku jaisa hi hoga. ‘Arre baba’ (says it in Y style)…this is how he talks. The
original film, Ramji Rao Calling (1989), wasn’t so funny. We added a lot of madness. We
went to meet Juku with drinks and told him ‘Aapko study karna hai.”

which easily becomes grimy from air pollution. So the local X manufacturers were in
trouble, as they have been using coal to boil sugar syrup ingredient for decades. They
protested that the law would hurt their businesses.
