The month of November marks the birthdays of two great icons of
Tinsel Town, two who can be closely related as being best of friends as
well as co-partners. Yes, we are talking about none other than the
adorable duo of Shah
Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla
, and BollyCurry has
decided to take their fans on a small trip down memory lane with one of
their superhit movies.
Shah Rukh and Juhi have worked together as co-stars for a total number of eight films, one of their most recognizable being Darr.
, the film is based on the obsessive love of Rahul (Shah
Rukh) for Kiran (Juhi), and the lengths he goes to possess her whilst
she already exists in relationship with Sunil (Deol). The romantic
psychological thriller was directed by late Mr. Yash Chopra ji
and will go down as one of his finest movies in Indian Cinema.
role of Rahul was initially propositioned to Ajay Devgn, but due to
lack of available dates required for shooting, he refused and Aamir Khan
was later approached. However, he too did not accept owing to personal
issues. Finally the role landed in Shah Rukh's lap, who happily
agreed. Interestingly, Deol was offered to opt on the role of his
choice, either Rahul or Sunil. He eventually decided to take the role of
Sunil thinking that the character would help his career graph. However,
the opposite took place and Shah Rukh's career took a boost playing the
violently obsessive lover. The role of Kiran was also first offered to
Raveena Tandon, however, she too turned down as she was busy with the
shooting of Parampara.
Shah Rukh and Juhi have had a long association with each other. They
have remained best of friends continuing to work on several projects and
opening their own production company, Dreamz Unlimited.
Since the takeover of the company by Red Chillies Entertainment -
owned exclusively by
Shah Rukh and his wife, Gauri - Shah Rukh and Juhi have remained
business partners as co-owners of the Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders
in partnership with Red Chillies Entertainment.
The team saw the win of its first title in 2012.
Here's BollyCurry wishing the two all the very best and we sincerely hope to see them onscreen very soon.
