en Bollywood News Farah Khan reveals she was paid ‘more than’ Shah Rukh Khan for Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa; says, “I was the highest paid person in the movie”

Farah Khan also recalled her first impression of Shah Rukh Khan and how they developed their off-screen camaraderie from there on.

Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan continue to share one of the closest bonds in Bollywood. It is a known fact that the Bollywood megastar started off from scratch in his film career and recently opening up about their struggling days, Farah Khan reminisced about the memories associated with the Kundan Shah film Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. She revealed that the movie makers did not have a high budget for the Shah Rukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamoorthy, and Deepak Tijori starrer and hence they even went on to cast regular people from Goa.

In an extensive interaction with Radio Nasha, Farah Khan revealed, “The budget was very low. Shah Rukh was paid Rs 25,000 for that movie. I was the highest paid person on that movie, let me tell you. I was paid Rs 5,000 per song, and there were six songs. Just because of that, I was paid Rs 30,000. We couldn’t even afford an assistant.”  She continued, “That full song ‘Aana Mere Pyar Ko’, we cast regular people from Goa,” and added that because of they were regular people they did not understand the cues. She stated that SRK resolved the problem by pinching them as a cue to stand up and do their bit.

Further elaborating on their camaraderie, Farah also mentioned that she did not have a great impression of the megastar after she saw him in an interview.  “We started the shoot in 1991, and I was also new. We were in Goa, and I’d only read an interview of Shah Rukh in which he sounded very brash and arrogant. I was very scared. I remember what he was wearing and doing when we first met; Kundan Shah introduced us,” she recalled. However, their similarities led to a beautiful friendship between the two. “Sometimes, you instantly hit it off with somebody. You feel like you’re friends from school. That’s what it was like with Shah Rukh. We had the same interests, we’d read the same books, we had the same sense of humour,” she asserted.

Farah Khan made her directorial debut with Shah Rukh Khan as her leading man in Main Hoon Na in 2004. She went on to work with him in films like Om Shanti Om and Happy New Year.
