Anurag Kashyap won't quit Bollywood until he makes a film with college senior Shah Rukh Khan, says 'we almost collaborated once'


Not many know that superstar Shah Rukh Khan was filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's senior in college. The two go long back and have been friends ever since. Spilling the beans on their association and plans of working with SRK, Anurag told a leading daily that SRK was his senior in university and that he has been there like a big brother helping him. According to Anurag, Shah Rukh used to tell him that if he does what he tells him to do, his problems will disappear. However, the filmmaker added that he didn’t want him to make his life and that he loved him to death.

Anurag has always been in awe of Shah Rukh. The filmmaker-actor also spoke about not leaving Bollywood until he makes a film with Shah Rukh. Earlier during an interaction, Anurag had spoken about how he and SRK almost collaborated. He had said, "Shah Rukh Khan wanted to do No Smoking, 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)."

Anurag also said, "He is my senior from university, he has been there like a big brother helping me. Shah Rukh 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, I love him to death."
