It was Baazigar in the year 1993 when Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol appeared together for the very first time. And ever since then, they have been a super hit Jodi and fans love to see them together on the silver screen. Kajol was very young when she entered the Bollywood industry and it wasn’t her first choice to become the actress.
When SRK and Kajol first met, they started it on the wrong foot. You know how? When he was working with Kajol in Baazigar, Aamir Khan called him to ask about her performance to which SRK replied that she’s bad and not focused and hence Aamir decided not to do a movie with her.
Talking to Indian Express about the same, SRK said, “When I was working with her in Baazigar, Aamir (Khan) asked me about her as he wanted to work with her. I left him a message saying, ‘She is very bad, no focus, you will not be able to work with her’. And then I saw the rushes in the evening. I kept calling Aamir to clarify. I told him, ‘I don’t know what it is but she is magical on the screen’”.
Talking about SRK’s first impression on Kajol, she said, “I remember Shah Rukh and other actors had a huge hangover when they came on the sets and I was jabbering away in Marathi to his make-up guy. They were like ‘what is that voice. It is going to split open our heads’. He was very grumpy but I kept chatting and finally he said, ‘Will you please shut up… chup ho jao’. I think that’s how we became friends.” SRK responded, “Even now, I have to tell her to ‘shut up’”.
Look at Kajol now, all grown up and so mature as an actor. SRK and Kajol were last seen in Dilwale together and garnered immense love for their chemistry. Recently, DDLJ completed 24 years last year and talking about the same, SRK said, “My daughter (Suhana) wants to become an actress and I would want her to learn that. I hope I learn that from Kajol. I can’t explain but she is something else on screen.”
