Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol dominated the box office (and our hearts) in the 90s and early 2000s with their fantastic onscreen chemistry. While we loved them as the “it” couple in the movies, their off-camera friendship was a goal for all of us. But did you know that their first meeting in early 1993 was very similar to their characters from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai?
Well, SRK and Kajol first met on January 1 on the sets of Baazigar (1993). In a previous interview, the hit jodi recalled complaining about the other’s personalities when they arrived on sets. Khan felt that Kajol was too loud; she considered him cranky. Well, just reading this takes us back to when Rahul and Anjali were students at St Xavier’s College. Scroll down and read more about their first meeting.
In a previous conversation with ABP News, Shah Rukh Khan revealed that he believes in work on the first day of the year. That’s because he believes it also sets the tone for the next 12 months. Speaking of which, the actor said, “I think the person who works on January 1 will continue to work all year round.” Before adding: “I belong to the working class, I need work all the time.
And therefore, after a night of partying on the last night of the year, the Baazigar team had to go to the sets the next day. During the conversation, Kajol said she did not drink but understood that others were “going out and partying” on December 31. Remembering the day, the actress said, “I arrived on set in the morning and was very energetic.”
Intervening in her conversation, Shah Rukh Khan quickly pointed out that she was extremely loud on sets and called her a “peacock”. He said, “The rest of us were very tired; our cameraman was arrested because he did not have a license. And the only noise (it was Kajol). He even remembered telling his makeup artist, “What kind of an actress is she, can’t she just shut up for a while?”
It’s funny is not it ? Well, this is not the end. As SRK called him loudly in a corner, Kajol told the same man that Shah Rukh was a total cranky. She remembers telling him, “For two hours he sat and read his script, not talking to anyone, what a cranky guy.”
Thin! Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan are damn funny but one of our favorite jodis. Actors often talked about getting off on the wrong foot when they first met and laughing every time. Kajol and SRK have shared the screen in several films, including Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Karan Arjun, Baazigar, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…, My Name Is Khan and more.
