Shah Rukh Khan, 55, has been active in the entertainment industry since the 80s. He has acted in more than 10 TV shows and more than 75 films. The celebrities who worked with him on Shah Rukh’s birthday shared interesting things about him with the Daily Bhaskar.
Hani Irani shared two stories
Episode no. 1: ‘Fear’ was the main reason for Rahul’s brawl
There was a reason to decorate Rahul’s character with ‘Tolabaji’ in ‘Dar’. In other words, Rahul was very confused when he saw Kiran. Cannot be published for many years. Also, she had a mental problem due to her mother’s absence. In such a situation, whenever he saw Kiran in front of him, he would stammer. Shah Rukh also tried a lot in that stuttering. It took Rahul a long time to get Kiran’s full name. Shah Rukh liked this aspect of Rahul very much.
Episode no. 2: It is very difficult to wake up Shah Rukh very early in the morning
We were shooting ‘Der’. Yash Chopra said that he will leave for shooting very early in the morning. At eleven o’clock at night everyone was sitting on the lawn eating. When Shah Rukh started sleeping, he told me to get up very early. I knocked on his door at five in the morning, but got no response.
The door was open, so I went inside. He was fast asleep. There was quite a stir, but he did not respond. Then I called Aditya (Chopra). Some assistants also came.
Everyone picked up Shah Rukh, got on the bus and fell asleep. After that, when Yashji coughed and asked, ‘Come on brother, do you want to shoot?’ Then Shah Rukh woke up. The bottom line is that you can’t wake Shah Rukh very early in the morning.
Juhi Chawla wrote an anecdote
I first worked with Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’. By that time my career has also increased due to ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’. I had a lot of films in my bag then. There were three pictures in Shah Rukh’s account then.
Apart from ‘Raju Ban Gaya Bhadralok’, I think there were ‘Dil Ashna Hai’ and ‘Dewana’. Interestingly, Shah Rukh was also shooting for ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’ with these two pictures.
His schedule was quite busy. Raju Ban Gaya used to shoot Gentleman. He would pack the second one and then pack it and shoot for the third movie. He worked 18 hours a day.
