Can’t keep using my privilege: Karan Johar reveals why he did not approach Shah Rukh Khan for Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani

Karan Johar made a spectacular comeback with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani after 7 long years.

The film had many renowned actors alongside the lead actors and featured many interesting cameos. 

In one of the interviews, the director was asked why he did not approach King Khan for the cameo in RRKPK, to which the director replied that Shah Rukh has always been humble to the filmmaker and already appeared in Ae Dil Hai Muskil before, for which he will always be grateful. Besides Shah Rukh also shot for Brahmastra for 18 days with no monetary demands, and after hIm doing it, Karan decided not to approach the star for this film too.

Karan shared, "Shah Rukh did the most defining scene for me in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and for that, I will always be very grateful to him. I can’t keep using my privilege with Shah Rukh. I can’t push it." Following that the filmmaker spoke about Brahmastra, "He just gave his heart, time, body everything for that sequence. It was a large sequence. If I go again to him, it will be too much. Shah Rukh never says no to me. But I can’t keep going to him. I think you need to keep that card very close. I will use it because I have that kind of access to Mr Khan but I don’t want to keep using it for no reason".

Shah Rukh will next be seen in Atlee Kumar's directed Jawan, which will go on floors on September 7, 2023.
