Salman Khan talks about if he had done Baazigar and Chak De India, Shah Rukh Khan couldn’t have been successful.
Salman Khan is celebrating his 57th birthday and had an intimate bash yesterday night with some friends and family. But as it is Salman Khan’s birthday here we are remembering his throwback conversation about his friend Shah Rukh Khan.
Talking in good humor Salman Khan once said he rejected a few films which then taken up by Shah Rukh Khan which made him successful and Salman Khan also don’t have any regret about the same.
Long back in an interview when the interviewer asked Salman Khan if he holds any grudge about Shah Rukh Khan as he got immense fame for Chak De India, Salman Khan said, “Not at all. I refused the film and he signed it and it’s fair. I had refused Baazigar as well. When Abbas Mustan came to me with the script, I asked my dad for his inputs. He felt that since it’s a story of negative character they should add an angle of mother in it. They didn’t agree. When I said no to the film, they went to Shah Rukh and then they added the mother angle!”
Then Salman Khan talked about if would have done the film. He continued, “Just Imagine if I had done Baazigar then there would be no Mannat standing in Bandstand today. I’m very happy for Shah Rukh and his success.”
Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan ‘friends turned foes’ are the most talked about and famous rivalry of Bollywood.
