Shah Rukh Khan was Anurag Kashyap’s senior when they were studying in the Delhi University.
The Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is mainly famous for his commercial films. Where as the filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is known for his ‘out of the way’ movies. But the filmmaker still wants to work with SRK.
Many times, they were very close to working together. But due to some or the other reason it couldn’t happen. Ina group interview, Kashyap said, “He wanted to do No Smoking and he was very upset when I went away from him. I also went to him with Allwyn Kalicharan. I wanted to do that with him and a big superstar from Hollywood. Everything was almost done but then again (it didn’t happen).”
Very determined about working with Shah Rukh one day, the filmmaker said, “But we will work together. I won’t go anywhere without making a film with Shah Rukh Khan… I will write a film that will lure him. He should be attracted to it, he should be dying do the film.”
He added on saying, “He is my senior from university, he has been there like a big brother helping me. He is super successful. When he loves you, he approaches things like, in my struggling years, (he used to tell me), ‘if you do what I tell you to do, your problems will disappear’. But I didn’t want him to make my life.”
Showing how much Kashyap admires and respect the actor, he said, “He is the only guy I can never speak upto. I can fight with the world but not him. If he scolds me, I’ll sit in a corner and cry. He is someone I have this love for. I love him to death.”
