Here’s how Shah Rukh Khan stood by Juhi Chawla after her mother passed away
Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla together have given us superhit films like ‘Yes Boss’, ‘Darr’, ‘Ram Jaane’, ‘Duplicate’ and many more. Professional relationships that span for a long time, tend to influence personal equations too, and theirs was no exception. And when Juhi was put through a critical time after her mother’s sudden death, SRK came forward to lend her his shoulder.
The actress went down the memory lane and shared various little known moments, in an interview. She went on to tell us how her mother’s sudden death shook us, while she was filming for the film in Prague.
“I lost my mother while shooting for ‘Duplicate’. We had reached Prague and it was Karan’s (Johar) birthday the next day, so my mother and I bought a gift for him. Next morning, before I went for the shoot, she left for a walk and never came back. It was very traumatic because just a day before we had reached there and three days later after she met with an accident, we were bringing her back in a coffin. It was devastating for me,” Juhi said.

“He was the person who consoled me, as he had seen his parents pass away before that and knew the pain of losing a parent. So, he was trying to make me laugh and forget things,” she added.
For those who remember, Juhi’s late bother Bobby Chawla was a part of SRK’s Kolkata Knight Riders administration. However, due to prolonged illness, he was unable to continue working at his best form. This apparently gave birth to differences between Juhi and SRK. After 4 years of ailment, Bobby took his last breath.
We know not if the two are back to being friends. But we hope they’re cherishing today’s date in their own ways! 🙂
When Sanjay Dutt didn't wake up for two days after taking drugs
Sunil and Nargis Dutt’s son, Sanjay Dutt‘s life has been a roller-coaster ride. Born in 1959, Sanjay Dutt’s life has always been under the media scanner. Though we know how eventful his life has been, after watching the trailer of his upcoming biopic ‘Sanju’, we all were quite surprised to know certain things about the various phases of this actor’s life. The film will apparently highlight all the highs and lows of Sanjay Dutt’s life in which his addiction to drugs will also form an integral part.
We came across an old video interview of the actor with veteran actress Simi Garewal from her show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’. In this interview, the actor spilled the beans on how badly his life got affected by his addiction to drugs. He went on to narrate an incidence where he once sniffed Heroin and went on to sleep for straight two days!

Sanjay woke up in the morning next day feeling extremely hungry. He asked his servant to make something for him but was shocked to see his servant cry. When Sanjay asked him why he was crying, the servant told him that he had woken up after two long days. This specific incident had left his entire family scared. After this episode, the actor understood that it was time to wake up and smell the coffee before it gets too late.
You can check out his full interview below:
The actor later went into rehabilitation and came out clean. ‘Sanju’, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, has Ranbir Kapoor playing Sanjay Dutt. Also starring Sonam Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala in pivotal roles, the film is all set to hit the silver screens on June 29. Till then stay tuned for more such interesting stories.
Ranbir Kapoor gave these many retakes for a scene in 'Saawariya'
Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the word perfection go hand in hand. The man is extremely particular when it comes to his film and takes care of even the minutest details in every scene. This is also the reason why most of his films are blockbusters. One of the actors who was privileged enough to work with this man is none other than Ranbir Kapoor. Mr Kapoor made his Bollywood debut with SLB’s directorial ‘Saawariya’. Though the movie did not work wonders at the box office, it did give a fair amount of recognition to Ranbir.
In a recent interaction with senior journalist Anupama Chopra, the actor recalled his ‘Saawariya’ days and spoke about the no. of retakes he had to deliver for one particular scene in the song ‘Jab Se Tere Naina.’ (Also Read:In Pics: Lovebirds Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt visit Sanjay Dutt’s residence)
The actor said,” I started with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and he doesn’t do anything less than 45 takes. So even if I had to turn my head, I probably had to give 50 takes. There was a shot in this so-called ‘towel song’ Jab Se Tere Naina, where I had to roll back on this chair and fall down and the towel had to fall in a certain way with my leg showing and there was one shot where I was lying down laughing and I had to get up and sing a song and he’s very particular about what beat you catch, he’s a very musical director – you fall on this beat, you lift your head here, you laugh here – everything is musical. I did 45 or 50 takes one day and my back really broke. The next morning when I came back, he said, ‘No, I’ve not got it’ and I had to do another 70 takes.”
Well, that is something huge but then if you wish to get appreciation from a man like Bhansali, you ought to put in that much amount of effort.
