Shah Rukh Khan and Yash Chopra loved an on-screen partnership and real-life relationship only a few within the trade can declare to have with one another. However the starting of this equation could possibly be credited to Shah Rukh’s modern, Aamir Khan. In an interview with Notch journal in 2013, costume designer-turned-producer Shabina Khan shared how Aamir had instructed SRK to name up Yash as he was casting for the 1993 thriller Darr.
Shabina mentioned Aamir strongly believed that Shah Rukh could be good for the function of Rahul, a younger man who turns into violent after the lady (Juhi Chawla) he loves doesn’t reciprocate his emotions.
Within the interview, Shabina Khan mentioned, “I’d wish to share a wierd, career-defining incident that occurred. This occurred at Salman’s annual Eid occasion, and everybody was in attendance – from Aamir to Shah Rukh to the highest heroines of the 90s. The occasion was winding up and I used to be among the many final to go away.”
The costume designer-turned-producer continued, “Aamir Khan, SRK, Gauri, and I had been standing in Salman’s compound when Aamir instructed Shah Rukh a couple of narration he heard the day past. Although he refused the movie, he strongly thought that Shah Rukh was good for the function and urged him to name Yash Chopra for a similar. The movie was Darr, and in that one informal dialog Aamir actually handed over Yash Chopra and Yash Raj banners to Shah Rukh. Darr made a hero out of a villain, historical past was written for Shah Rukh Khan, as he grew to become Yash Raj’s favorite actor and Yash uncle’s everlasting ‘Rahul’.”
Two years after Darr, Yash Chopra produced Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), which marked the directorial debut of the previous’s son Aditya Chopra. Shah Rukh went on to work with each Yash and Aditya for his or her banner Yash Raj Movies in films like Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Mohabattein (2000), Veer Zara (2004), Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) and Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012).
