Shahrukh-Kajol pair is one of the most successful and sizzling pair in the history of Mumbai film industry. They have starred in many blockbuster movies that set screen on fire. Though Kajol is off from limelight but the pair is still remembered as a golden pair.
“I miss Kajol in every film. With this film, she gave us 150 days. She had to be away from her children and I know it is a huge sacrifice for a parent,” Shah Rukh Khan had said on Kajol during Dilwale’s shooting.
However, the relationship had not started on the good note. SRK had a very bad idea about the actress initially and he even forbade Amir to work with her.
“When I was working with her in Baazigar, Aamir asked me about her as he wanted to work with her. I left him a message saying, ‘She is very bad, no focus, you will not be able to work with her’. And then I saw the rushes in the evening. I kept calling Aamir to clarify. I told him, ‘I don’t know what it is but she is magical on the screen’,” Shah Rukh rectified his opinion.
When Kajol recalled her how she became friends with SRK, her story too began on the sets of Baazigar.
“I remember Shah Rukh and other actors had a huge hangover when they came on the sets and I was jabbering away in Marathi to his make-up guy. They were like ‘what is that voice. It is going to split open our heads’. He was very grumpy but I kept chatting and finally he said, ‘Will you please shut up… chup ho jao’. I think that’s how we became friends.”
SRK is often annoyed with the glib of the tongue of the effervescent actress and this has not changed in the last 20 years. Off the screen, they are great friends. The pair last appeared In Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale.
