When just the mention of Shah Rukh Khan’s name did wonders to these Bollywood films
‘Andaz Apna Apna’ (1994)
As of today, this is probably the only Bollywood film where we see superstars Aamir Khan and Salman Khan sharing the screen space. But, this comedy film also carried the mention of Shah Rukh Khan (completing the Khan trinity). In the beginning dream sequence of the film between Aamir Khan and actress Juhi Chawla (as herself), there’s one particular scene where Juhi is seen humming the track ‘Tu Hai Meri Kiran’ from her another movie ‘Darr’. Reacting to this, Aamir imitates in SRK’s stammering style (from ‘Darr’), to which follows the funniest dialogue of Juhi Chawla saying, “Mujhe laga Shah Rukh Khan aa gaya”.
‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ (2008)
This romantic drama saw Ranbir Kapoor playing the character of a playboy named Raj Sharma. There were three different girls in his life at different stages. Among them, the first part saw actress Minissha Lamba whom he meets during a trip to Switzerland. The period during their meet is of early 90’s, just after the mania of Raj (the protagonist played by Shah Rukh Khan from ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’) had started. From Ranbir playing the instrumental tune from movie ‘DDLJ’ on a guitar to the character of Mahi (Minissha Lamba) believing that she will someday meet her Raj, there were many instances in this specific portion of the film that were reliving Shah Rukh Khan’s character Raj and of course his film ‘DDLJ’.
‘Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 2’ (2012)
The unusual romantic pairing of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Huma Qureshi was one of the highlights of this crime film. As both of them have been shown (in the first part) as regular movie buffs, there was a funny scene in this film where the character of Faizal asks Mohsina to go out on a movie with him. This particular scene starts with the dialogue when Faizal recommends the first movie saying, “‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’", to which she replies, “Chaar baar dekhi hai”. Further, in that list he adds the name of ‘Karan Arjun’ saying, “Chal na ‘Karan Arjun’ dekh ke aate hai, Shah Rukh Salman dono hain.” This was a hilarious scene which was well-received for the superb act by Nawazuddin and Huma, with of course not forgetting the mention of SRK and Salman which had literally added more to the humour.
'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' (2014)
This was the first film that actually gave a tribute to Shah Rukh Khan’s cult romantic film ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ , with the only difference being that this movie was the same plot set in modern times. There were a lot of scenes and moments shared between the lead pair of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt which provided the comic relief and made fans go reminiscence ‘DDLJ’. Varun’s character Humpty is shown to be an ardent fan of this SRK and Kajol-starrer. Also, in the climax scene Alia’s character Kavya is also seen imitating King Khan’s signature move as she spreads her arms for Humpty.
‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ (2015)
This romantic drama saw actress Kangana Ranaut playing a double role that of Tanu (from the first part) and Kusum Sangwan alias Datto. There’s this one particular sequence in the film when the character of Manu (played by R. Madhavan) starts following Datto after getting to know that she exactly looks like his wife Tanu. Datto who is shown as an athlete in the film is therefore seen practising on the university ground in one scene where she starts running before taking a jump. But, before taking that jump Manu comes in front of Datto stepping forward slowly (in his own world) and slightly spreading out his arms as with a feeling that she is going to hug him. As Datto loses her balance and falls over Manu there comes the dialogue where Kangana says, “Ke kar raha tha bahan faela ke, yo jagah se Shah Rukh Khan bannan ki.” This comic scene actually had a reference to SRK’s signature move of spreading his arms.
Almost everyone, be it a fan or an ardent moviegoer knows about the close friendship bond shared between B-Town’s Karan Arjun aka Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Salman’s blockbuster film ‘Sultan’ was much hyped and anticipated when the promos of this film were out. But, among them the one which found its place on top was undoubtedly Salman’s character Sultan being the fan of Shah Rukh Khan where he is even seen praising the actor. Salman is seen saying this dialogue, “Shah Rukh ka mazak mat udao. Manne bahut pasand hain. Jab woh ladki ke aankh mei aankh dalke dekhe hai na, to andhi ladki bhi pat jawe hain.”
Touted to be one of Bollywood’s all-time blockbusters, this Aamir Khan-starrer also had a mention of Shah Rukh Khan and 'DDLJ'. There’s a scene in the second half after Geeta Phogat (played by actress Fatima Sana Shaikh) joins an institute for further training. As she makes friends here she joins them to see ‘DDLJ’ when it airs on television. This particular scene sees a group of girls drooling over SRK. And just before this scene, one of Geeta’s classmates also has a dialogue saying, “Shah Rukh ko nah nahi bolte, paap lagta hai” (as the character of Geeta refuses to see the film first).
'Badrinath Ki Dulhania' (2017)
When you watched Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt-starrer ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’, did you pay attention to that sly reference to SRK? Well, we will refresh your memory. Remember Varun's introduction scene, wherein his character of Badrinath is seen posing for his photoshoot as a bridegroom, and his best friend, the photographer scolds him for his smile saying, “Arey yeh tedha munh karke kyun smile kar rehe ho? Shah Rukh Khan ho kya?” Well, you get it. Of course, though we love Varun, no one can match the smile that King Khan has, enough to disarm an army of women.
