When Abbas-Mustan wanted to cast Sridevi in ​​a double role in Baazigar, they could not find any actor, what happened after this…

Shahrukh Khan’s film Baazigar was a superhit. Shahrukh became a star with this film. Since then he had not looked back in his career. Kajol and Shilpa Shetty were seen with Shahrukh in Baazigar. This film was a hit but it was not easy for directors Abbas-Mustan to make it. For this he had to roll many papads. Not only this, people also gave him many suggestions, one of which was to cast Sridevi in ​​a double role. Abbas-Mustan themselves had told this in an interview. It took a lot of hard work for Abbas-Mustan to make Baazigar. Initially, no one was agreeing to do this film because he had to play a negative character in it, which was later played by Shahrukh Khan.

I got this advice

In an interview given to Komal Nahata, Abbas-Mustan had told that no one wanted to do this film because of the negative character. When he was looking for an actor for the film, someone advised him to cast Sridevi in ​​this film. That too in double role. He said that Sridevi should play the roles of Priya and Seema, so that when one dies, fans can see Sridevi through the other sister. But this did not happen. It was later played by Kajol and Shilpa Shetty.

I didn’t like the idea

Abbas-Mustan had further told that they did not like this advice at all. He wanted to cast new faces in his film and he did just that. He cast Kajol, Shilpa and Shahrukh in the film. It is said that Shahrukh Khan had said yes to the film as soon as he heard the story. He liked this story very much. He agreed to do this character as soon as he heard the story.
