When Juhi Chawla First Saw Shah Rukh Khan and Felt Cheated on as Producer Promised Big Things
During a chat in the episode of Entertainment Ki Raat, Juhi Chawla recalled the incident and spoke in Hindi, “We had done a movie when even I was still new in the industry, named Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman. Producer Vivek Vaswani said big things that your hero was in Fauji and he’s very famous and looks like Aamir Khan. In my mind, I pictured a chocolate-faced, good-looking hero, like Aamir. So I said, ‘yes, why won’t I do the movie!”
The Bhootnath actress said, “When I reached the set, that was when I first saw him. Shah Rukh, patla sa, dubla sa, brown colour ka, white shirt mein duble patle se. Maine bola, ‘ye, kis angle se Aamir Khan lagta hai batao mujhe?’ Ye toh mere saath dhokha ho gaya. (Shah Rukh was a thin, brown coloured man standing in a white shirt. I asked, ‘From which angle is he looking like Aamir Khan? I have been betrayed)” Though she did the movie because of her commitment. She later jokingly said, “Dekho, usko bhi star bana diya maine (See, I made him a star too).”
