Here’s Why Karan Johar Had To Beg Rani Mukerji And Salman Khan To Work With Him

Published on 12 July, 2016 at 3:22 am By

It seems that kids with “filmy backgrounds” must have it damn easy in  Bollywood, but director and chat show host Karan Johar revealed recently that he had a tough time convincing actors to act in his early hit ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.

During an event, Johar told reporters that he wanted a known face for Rani Mukerji’s role in the movie and approached eight heroines, all of whom turned him down.

He said:

“I had lot of trouble while casting for Rani Mukerji’s part in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’. I had approached eight heroines and no one agreed (for the role). (I had) given a romantic narration but no one responded. I became like a beggar. Even for Salman Khan’s part (in the movie), I had to roam here and there. Finally, it all happened. I had to literally beg Salman and Rani to be on board.”

Karan Johar then joked with the reporters saying that he even considered wearing a short skirt and playing the part himself that was later played by Rani Mukerji. However, both actors accepted the part and the super-hit couple Shah Rukh and Kajol became immensely popular, starring in various Karan Johar movies together.

It was Aditya Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan who told Johar to cast Rani Mukerji.

According to Johar:

“I went to Rani who was then going to do ‘Ghulam’. It was suggested to me by Shah Rukh Khan and Aditya Chopra. They both recommended Rani’s name after looking at a particular expression of her in ‘Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat’. We wanted a known face for Rani’s part as she dies in the beginning (in the movie), but that did not work out.”
