Mr. Raghavan told the source that SRK’s name always came at his mind whenever he worked on a script but “There are certain actors I think I can approach whenever I am working on something and Shah Rukh is one of those. He’s somebody whom I’d love to work with.” Director Raghavan also said that he had written a version of the story that gave Mr. Khan one of his major hit movies- Baazigar.
Director Sriram Raghavan said, “He’s somebody whom I’d love to work with. For example, one of the very early stories I’d written, was based on a novel on which Baazigar was also based – A Kiss Before Dying. My version of that movie would have been something else. In fact, I worked on the script and later found out that a film had already been made on the idea.”
Baazigar, a crime-thriller movie, released in 1993 and directed by Abbas-Mustan and it was a commercial success and starred Kajol opposite to Shah Rukh Khan was Shilpa Shetty’s debut film.
