Honey Irani shared two cases
Case number 1: Rahul was fighting for a special reason in ‘Fear’
Stuttering was a special reason for Rahul’s character in the film ‘Dar’. Whenever Rahul saw Kiran, he became very conscious. He could not confess his love for years. At the same time, she had a mental problem due to not being a mother. In this, whenever he saw Kiran going in front of him, he would break. Shahrukh Khan was very popular on that stutter. It took Rahul a long time to get Kiran’s full name. This side of Rahul was played very well by Shahrukh Khan.
Case number 2: It’s hard to wake up Shahrukh Khan in the morning
We were shooting Dar Dar. Yash Chopraji said that shooting would start early in the morning. At 11 o’clock, everyone was sitting in the lawn for dinner. When Shahrukh Khan went to bed, he asked me to get up early in the morning. At five in the morning I knocked on the door of her room, but got no response.
Then I saw that the door was open and I went inside. Shahrukh Khan was fast asleep. Shouted his name, shook him by the shoulder but he didn’t respond. Then I called Aditya Chopra and some assistants came.
Everyone gathered and woke him up and placed Shahrukh on the bus. Then when Yashji ate hollow and asked, “Let’s shoot the brother or not?” Then Shahrukh Khan’s eye opened. In short, you cannot wake up Shahrukh in the morning.
Juhi Chawla pronounced a case
I first worked with Shah Rukh Khan in the film ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’. A Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak was a hit and I did many films. Shahrukh Khan had only three films.
Apart from ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentlemail’, I think Shah Rukh had ‘Dil Aashna Hai’ and ‘Deewana’. Surprisingly, with both these films, Shah Rukh was also shooting for ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentlemail’. He worked in three innings. There was a second shift and then a third shift. I worked 18 hours a day. ‘
