Shahrukh Khan is known as King Khan of Bollywood. His year 2023 was amazing, in which he gave superhit and blockbuster films like Pathan, Jawan and Danki. In this year, his complaints against Sunny Deol also seemed to be resolved. But do you know that a director from the industry hated Shahrukh Khan before working with him. However, after working in the film, his nature towards King Khan changed and he also became his fan.
This director is none other than Subhash Ghai, who has worked with King Khan in the film Pardes. According to IMdb, Subhash Ghai hated Shahrukh before the production of the 1997 film Pardes. The director had shaken hands with Shahrukh in 1991 and told people that Khan was a dog and if Shahrukh ever became famous, he would destroy everyone with his success and bad attitude. However, when Ghai met Shahrukh again at the party of Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na, he saw his human side, who was taking care of Gauri and her parents. Due to this the idea of casting Shahrukh in Trimurti started.
Talking about Pardes, apart from Shahrukh Khan, this film featured Mahima Chaudhary, Apoorva Agnihotri, Aditya Narayan and Amrish Puri. The budget of the film was only Rs 10 crore. Whereas the box office collection was more than 40 crores, which was four times the budget. Shahrukh Khan and Mahima Chaudhary also got a new identity from this film.
