When Aamir khan refused darr told shah rukh khan he would be perfect for the role. Shah Rukh Khan and Yash Chopra enjoyed an on-screen partnership and real-world relationship that could hardly claim to be with each other in the industry.
However, the beginning of this equation can be recognized by Aamir Khan, a contemporary of Shah Rukh. In an interview with Notch magazine in 2013, Shabina Khan, who turned from costume designer to producer, shared how Aamir proposed to SRK to sing Yash to her when she was cast in the 1993 thriller Darr.
Shabina said Aamir firmly believed Shah Rukh would be perfect for the role of Rahul, who turns violent because the woman she loves (Juhi Chawla) doesn’t reciprocate her feelings.
In an interview, Shabina Khan said, “I want to talk about a strange incident that shaped my career. This happened at Salman’s annual Eid party and was attended by everyone from Aamir to Shah Rukh to the best heroines of the 90s. The party is over and I am the last to leave.”
“Aamir Khan, SRK, Gauri and I were standing at Salman’s house, and Aamir talked to Shah Rukh about a narration he had heard the day before,” said the producer, who turned from a costume designer to the producer. He turned down the film but strongly believed Shah Rukh was perfect for the role and urged him to call Yash Chopra for the same role.
The movie was Darr, and in that casual conversation, Aamir literally handed over Yash Chopra and Yash Raj banners to Shah Rukh. Darr made a hero out of a villain and Shah Rukh Khan went down in history as Yash Raj’s favorite actor and Uncle Yash’s eternal ‘Rahul’.”
Two years after Darr, Yash Chopra produced Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995) starring Shah Rukh Khan, the former’s son Aditya Chopra’s directorial debut. Shah Rukh has worked with Yash and Aditya as a banner for Yash Raj Films in such films as Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Mohabattein (2000), Veer Zara (2004), Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008), and Jab Tak. . Haizan (2012).
