Bigg Boss 14’s Weekend Ka Vaar is here and fans along with the contestants are really looking forward to watching Salman Khan and his humour on the show. This is the only time where he not only reviews and schools the contestants but also takes one of the nominated contestants away from the house. The first contestant to be evicted from the Bigg Boss 14 house was Sara Gurpal and as the contestants are dressed to know who will be eliminated from the house, they dozed off nicely. Well, just recently, the Twitter handle of The Khabri shared a few snaps of the contestants who fell asleep as Weekend Ka Vaar didn’t start on time. 

To kill some time off, Pavitra Punia, Nishant Malkani, Nikki Tamboli, Rahul Vaidya, Shehzad Deol were seen sleeping in their costumes when the shoot didn’t happen. Khabri captioned these pictures as, “Contestants were ready for #WeekendKaVaar shoot yesterday but when it didnt start they slept in same dresses” After seeing these, pictures, there was one who was feeling bad to see them in this condition, “Becharey kab tak wait kereingey, obv enjoy napSmiling face with open mouth and cold sweat SK time has been on hold since 2dys”

Meanwhile, a huge fight broke in the house over kitchen duties. Rubina Dilaik and Nikki Tamboli locked horns over who will cut the vegetables and who will cook. To cool things up in the house, the two talented singers Jaan Kumar and Rahul Vaidya indulge in a musical jugalbandi that each and every member of the house enjoyed.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge turns 25! SRK reveals why he was skeptical to play a romantic hero

Published

on

By

Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (lovingly also called DDLJ), directed by Aditya Chopra, completes 25 years today and the King of Romance startingly reveals that he never felt he could pull off a role of a romantic hero on screen!

SRK says, “Raj was unlike anything I had done. Before DDLJ, there was Darr, Baazigar, Anjaam—films in which I had portrayed negative characters. Also, I always felt that I wasn’t cut out to play any romantic type of character. So, when I was presented with the opportunity by Adi and Yash ji of essaying the role, I was excited to work with him but had no idea how to go about it and also if I would be able to do it well.”

“Actually, I always felt Adi’s love for me made him cast me. I found the character endearing and sweet in the right way – the over the topness is my contribution. It was one of those roles that I realized can do with me using a version of my real self so you might see some quirks, habits and mannerisms that were true to my off-screen persona, especially the sense of humour part.”

Written and directed by debutant Aditya Chopra, DDLJ shattered all box office records and is one of the biggest all-time blockbusters in the history of Hindi cinema. It also went on to become the longest-running Hindi film of all time! DDLJ is also the winner of a record-breaking (at the time) 10 Filmfare Awards and the film literally changed the face of Bollywood globally.

The film was made at a budget of 4 crore and the blockbuster, in 1995, collected 89 crore in India, 13.50 crore in overseas markets. Thus, total collections stood at 102.50 crore worldwide in 1995! In today’s inflation adjusted value, DDLJ’s collection stands at a staggering 455 crore in India and 69 crore in overseas territories, taking the total worldwide collections to a phenomenal 524 crore!

Shah Rukh goes on to say that he is very shy around women and didn’t know how he would pull off the romantic scenes in DDLJ! “I was told by many people that I looked unconventional – very different from what the perception of a leading man was. I did feel, maybe, not being handsome enough — or as they called it then ‘chocolaty’ would make me unsuitable for romantic roles. Also, I am very shy and awkward with ladies, and I didn’t know how I would say all the loving, romantic bits.”

Lovingly called King Khan by his fans, SRK adds, “I have to admit, for someone who doesn’t like mushy, romantic films, the scenes with Kajol and I did make me feel all fuzzy and warm. There, I said it!” He also reveals, “I don’t change the radio channel when a DDLJ song comes on. I can never get sick of them. They bring back memories of a film that shaped my path forward in an unforgettable way.”

The iconic ending of DDLJ has inspired scores of lovers across generations to visualise their love story to be like Raj and Simran’s. Many film-makers have also used this scene as an inspiration for their films. SRK reveals that he didn’t expect the train sequence to become as iconic when they were shooting it.

“There could have been no other ending, but I did not think it would be as iconic as it eventually turned out to be,” he says.

SRK credits DDLJ for catapulting him to superstardom. He says, “I think DDLJ helped me cement my place and brought me fame in a way that I didn’t think it would. We were all living in the moment, trying to make the best film we could. There are so many reasons attributed to its success, but I don’t think any one specific thing can explain the phenomenon it has become. I think all the success is to be credited to the pure heart with which the film was made by Adi, Yashji, and the entire cast and crew—and my non-existent ‘good looks’.”

He adds, “As for perception, I always felt that I can play more unconventional roles because of my looks, but DDLJ has belied that and I still struggle to make that one macho unconventional kick ass character which suits me, or so I thought, but its been a struggle to not be considered romantic and sweet for the last 25 years — a struggle, I guess, I am happy to lose.”
