Salman did not do the film that made Shahrukh ‘Baazigar’ on the advice of Salim Khan
It is not a matter of a common man to reach where Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan is today. The actor got support from many people during this period. Salman Khan shared an anecdote related to Shahrukh in which he talked about the film Baazigar.
Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan
Shah Rukh Khan Movie Baazigar: Shahrukh Khan is considered one of the most successful actors of Bollywood. The actor is also praised because without any family background, Shah Rukh Khan not only made his mark in the industry but also gained immense popularity across the world. Somewhere its foundation was laid when he was seen playing the role of negative shade in movies like Darr and Baazigar. But Baazigar was the film through which Shahrukh Khan started climbing the stairs of success. But do you know this film was earlier offered to Salman Khan.
Shahrukh-Salman’s friendship is special
The friendship of Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan is very special. There was estrangement between the two in between but now both are together and they keep supporting each other. He jokingly said in an interview that if he had not rejected the film Baazigar, Shah Rukh Khan would not have been such a big star today. Actually Salman had done this because his father had objection with the script of the film.
Salim Khan had given advice
Salman had said that when Abbas Mastan brought the script of the film, during that time I went to my father with this script. The father had said that there should not be negative characters in it or if there is, then the mother’s angle should also be added to it. But the production did not agree to this at that time. Later he took Shahrukh Khan for the film and added the mother angle as well. Now just imagine that if I had done that film, Shah Rukh would not have had Mannat opposite Bandstand today.
Baazigar made Shahrukh Khan the king
Please tell that apart from Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Shilpa Shetty were in the film Baazigar. The acting of all the three actors was highly praised and the film also won the hearts of the audience. After this, Shahrukh Khan became the choice of Bollywood directors and he did more than one superhit film. At present, Shahrukh Khan is waiting for the release of his upcoming film Pathan. Advance booking of the film has started and fans are giving their full support to it. Pathan is set to release on January 25, 2023.
