Farah Khan On Hrithik Roshan For Main Hoon Na

For a long time, there were reports that Hrithik Roshan or Abhishek Bachchan were considered for the role of Laxman in Main Hoon Na. Farah already had the story ready and wanted Hrithik, who was working on Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai, in her movie. The moment Farah saw Hrithik give his first shot, she knew he would be a star and told his father, Rakesh Roshan, the same.

The director told Radio Nasha, “That time, I told Hrithik that I’d written a script and that he’d be the young boy… He was very excited. He said, ‘Shah Rukh will (work) with me?’ I said, ‘Of course’. That was the (dynamic). And then, obviously, Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai was released, Hrithik became a huge star, and the rest is history.”

Back then, there were reports of tension between Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan. There was alleged chatter that Hrithik would take SRK’s place. Reportedly, the tension between the duo was felt during the shooting of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001).
