Producer Ravi Anand wanted Ravi Tandon to direct a film titled "Sultan" (1981) with Raaj Kumar in the title role. A day before the film could be launched, Ravi was in for the shock of my life when Raaj Kumar walked in and showed him the dialogues and the camera movements for the various artistes in Sultaan written by Raaj Kumar. Ravi told Raaj on his face that no star had ever directed me or dictated to me and I had worked with the biggest stars-Manoj Kumar, Chintu, Amitabh, Jeetendra, Shatrughan Sinha and Sanjeev Kumar. Ravi told Raaj Kumar to direct the film himself and walked out of the project in disgust.
