Ayushmann Khurrana took a trip down memory lane after he came across a throwback picture of Shah Rukh Khan and Deepa Sahi from the sets of their film Maya Memsaab on Instagram. The picture was shared by an online portal to celebrate the 28th anniversary of the film today, on which Ayushmann remembered how he had watched the shooting of the film when he was a child and even gave deets about the place it was shot.
The picture was shared with the caption, “28 Years of #MayaMemsaab (02/07/1993) It is a mystery drama film directed by Ketan Mehta, based on Gustave Flaubert's novel Madame Bovary. It stars #ShahRukhKhan, Deepa Sahi, Farooq Shaikh, Raj Babbar, and Paresh Rawal. Songs by Hridaynath Mangeshkar and Gulzar. A rare photo from the sets of Maya Memsaab. Director Ketan Mehta with his actors Shah Rukh Khan and Deepa Sahi.”
Taking to the comments section of the post, Ayushmann wrote, “This was Kasauli. I have seen this shoot. I was 8.” Other fans also remembered the film and its songs. "Loved the songs. Could and can listen for hours today too. Was a kid when this movie was released and wasn't allowed to watch it for the 'controversial subject," read a comment. "Srk at his best!!! Young and Raw," read another.
SRK and Ayushmann have never worked together but the latter has always spoken about his love for the superstar. During his VJ days, Ayushmann used to mimic SRK’s film acts and his wife Tahira Kashyap Khurrana in her book had written how she would make out with Ayushmann in cinema halls watching Shah Rukh Khan’s films. Shah Rukh had replied by saying, “I’m not sure if I should be happy or offended that Tahira and her beau’s favourite make-out spot was in the cinema watching my movies (which kind of explains the strange smiles both of them have on their face wherever they meet me)."
