What! Did Shah Rukh Khan just say that he owes his career to Armaan Kohli?

Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma appeared yesterday on ‘Yaaron Ki Baarat’ hosted by Sajid Khan and Riteish Deshmukh, and got totally candid on the show. SRK made many revelations and one of them that caught us by surprise was when he said he kind of owed his career to Armaan Kohli!

Gasped in surprise, did you? For those of you who do not know, Armaan Kohli is more known for his stints in the ‘Bigg Boss’ rather than his acting career. Yes, SRK was talking about the same Armaan Kohli.

As per Shah Rukh, Armaan was the original choice to play the former’s role in the movie ‘Deewana’ starring Rishi Kapoor and Late Divya Bharti. However, the actor walked out on the makers before the completion of the first schedule, and in came Shah Rukh Khan. The rest is history. ‘Deewana’ was a blockbuster and rocket launched SRK’s career.

Quite an interesting fact, don’t you think?

On work front, Shah Rukh Khan will be next seen in Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi’ wherein he will playing a mentor to the character of Alia Bhatt. ‘Dear Zindagi’ will hit the screens on November 25.
