While Shah Rukh Khan has been ruling millions of hearts for years now, the actor is currently king at the box office thanks to his latest release Pathaan. While fans are still flocking to the big screen to see SRK in all his action glory, we’ve decided to take you back to the days when choreographer Saroj Khan hit him.
For those who don’t know, Shah Rukh shared a very close bond with the late dance master Saroj. The duo worked together in several films in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and it was during that time that she raised her hands to him. Read on to know all about it.
While interacting with The Telegraph in 2018, Shah Rukh Khan got candid about the report he and Saroj Khan shared – including talking about the time she hit him. Shocked? Well, according to the’Pathanactor’s confession, it was a loving slap, and he got it when he complained that he was tired from too much work.
Recalling the incident, Shah Rukh Khan said, “I remember being in my early days after working with Sarojji. At that time I worked three shifts and I would be like this (leans back in his chair and sticks out his tongue).” The actor continued, “I said to her, ‘Sarojjiitna kaam hai, thak gaya hoon (Sarojji, I’m too tired, there’s too much work)’.”
Bollywood’s Badshah added, “She would be very motherly to me and she would slap me on the cheek, pyaar se (lovingly), and say, ‘Kabhi yeh mat kehna ki zyada kaam hai’ (Never complain about too much work there is never too much work in this area. I’m just lucky to have so much to choose from. So no pressure.”
Awww, isn’t that so sweet!
