never wrote a character looking at a star
Subhash Ghai says that “There is a principle of writing a story that first the character and its story should be written, after that the stars should be seen fitting in it. I never wrote a character after seeing a star. First I judge for myself whether a particular character fits a star or a new waist, only then I finalize it.
Shahrukh Khan had to work hard to show himself as a non-lover
Remembering Arjun Sagar, the main character of the film, Subhash Ghai says that the character played by Shahrukh Khan. When I called Shahrukh for its cast, I told him only one thing, that you don’t have to be Shahrukh in this film. Tumhari Dilwale Dulhania has become a huge hit, and your romantic character has been loved by all. Whenever you see a girl on screen for the first time, you really feel like you are in love with her. But my story is such, in which you have to keep this feeling of love till the end, otherwise my story will be ruined.
The director further said that “In such a situation, SRK was really Shahrukh Khan It took a lot of hard work to bring himself out of the show, and the most important thing is that he also had accessories for this character, which made him look mature despite being modern. In such a situation, I advised him to wear trousers instead of jeans, which somehow made magic in the film. I think Shahrukh’s performance in this film stood out from all his other films.
