In a recent media interaction, Bollywood director shared about his college days and said that he and Shah Rukh Khan go a long way back.
Talking about choosing the great SRK for a cameo role in his upcoming movie ‘Tubelight’, Kabir Khan said that there is a reason why he selected SRK for this particular role.
“Shah Rukh’s is a lovely character in the film. It’s a very pivotal scene in the film. In a certain way it sets off the process of Salman character of what he will do in the film. It’s going to be a treat to Salman and Shah Rukh together on screen after 20 years. It’s a beautiful scene. And I too am looking forward to the audience reaction to that part. I have left a little lull in that scene just for people to scream, shout, whistle and settle down before I go forward. I know what’s going to happen in the theatre. It’s going to be Mayhem when the two of them come together.”
He then went on to talk about his personal equation with SRK and said that Shahrukh is somebody he has known since college days and that it was SRK that gave him his college notes to study.
With further nostalgia, he added that he cleared his masters in film-making because of SRK’s notes and that they were even in the same school.
“He was senior to me by 2 years. Gauri and I had been dancing partners in a production called Westside Stories. So we go back a long way. All these factors combined, he said yes immediately.”
