The fact that Shah Rukh Khan made his acting debut with the TV serial Fauji is no secret. Not only was the soap a huge success, but it also made Khan an overnight sensation. Now with several old shows coming back, there are hopes on the show along with another SRK and Renuka Shahane show, Circus, getting back on TV.
Renuka, who too is a prolific actress herself has opened up about working with a rather young Shah Rukh Khan in Circus. Though the show was one of the first few roles of King Khan, he already had a huge fan following owing to the success of Fauji.
Opening up about SRK’s dedication to work, Renuka has called the superstar a workaholic. Reminiscing their days on set together, the Hum Aapke Hain Kaun actress has been quoted by Mumbai Mirror saying, “It was great as we all were quite young and enthusiastic. Shah Rukh was a huge craze even at that time because his previous show Fauji had done so well. He was like a heartthrob even then. At that time when he was not even a film star, I’ve seen him getting mobbed by fans and a crowd of around 20,000 people gathering there just to see Shah Rukh Khan. He was a workaholic. He would have worked for 36 hours at a stretch if he was asked to. That kind of energy was very infectious. Plus, all of us were already excited to work with him. I definitely was, because I had loved Fauji.”
Well, while we are more than excited to see these early acting days of King Khan return to the small screen, do let us know what are your thoughts about the same!
