Every journey bagges a collection of fun incidence and moments and when it comes to the making process of a film the people involved remembers all the merriment for a long time. These incidents sometimes reveal a lot to hilarity about their favorite actors and actresses.
In a recent interview director Imtiaz Ali remembered the days when he and Shah Rukh Khan were part of the same theatre but the actor was his senior. At that time Imtaiz had heard a lot about him but never had met him in person. So the first time Imtiaz saw SRK, he admitted that he didn’t really find him that good looking. “He was our senior in theatre and we used to keep hearing about him that he was doing plays with Barry John. He had, by then, started working on ‘Circus’ and ‘Fauji’. Prabhat Ranjan (novelist) once told us that he’s very handsome. I asked him ‘Aapko yeh handsome lag raha hai?’” he said.
He also shared a fun incident from the set of his film Jab Harry Met Sejal. The film was set in Europe and was shot in numerous locations around the world. One of these locations included Portugal.
Isn’t that a sweet story! Shah Rukh always tells in his interviews how shy and introvert he is and this just proves it!
Remembering the incident, Imtiaz Ali said,
“We were in Portugal and nobody recognized Shah Rukh there. We were meanwhile trying to impress Anushka Sharma. We threw a challenge and we told him ‘why don’t you approach that girl over there’. You won’t believe, he was so nervous that he just didn’t go for it! He instead told me to talk to the girl. Shah Rukh is the romantic hero who can do anything for the heroines in films. But over there, he got so nervous! Even I was nervous but I forgot all about it when I saw King Khan’s nervousness.”
On work front Imtiaz is all set for his next release in the coming year, Aaj Kal 2, starring Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan.
