Did you know that Shahrukh Khan was given his first Big Break by none other than Hema Malini?

If you think that Srk was given his first break in Bollywood by Karan Johar or Yash Chopra then you are wrong. Srk’s first film was supposed to be ‘Dil Aashna Hai’ produced and directed by yesteryear actress Hema Malini. Due to the delay of Dil Aashna Hai, ‘Deewana’ was released before which turned out to be Srk’s debut film.

Dil Aashna Hai starred Shahrukh Khan, Divya Bharti, Jeetendra, Mithun Chakraborty, Sonu Walia and Amrita Singh. What happened was, Hema Malini had selected the entire cast of the film except for the hero. Hema Malini then spotted Srk in the serial ‘Fauji’ and asked her production house to call Shahrukh to Mumbai for the audition.

Srk could not believe that he was called by Hema Malini herself and felt that this was a prank performed by his friends in Delhi. But the news turned out to be true. Srk remembers giving a ‘satisfactory’ audition. However, Srk bagged the role opposite Divya Bharti and the film was released in 1992.

Isn’t Srk’s filmy journey one of a kind? Comment down below.
