Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, who have come together for many films, including the recent mega blockbuster Pathaan, have always shared a camaraderie. Salman recalled his Karan Arjun days with the superstar and opened up about a prank gone wrong. The actor confessed that he was playing with a blank gun and shot SRK for fun but the latter ended up falling down which left everyone on the sets shocked.
Salman Khan opens up about when he thought he killed Shah Rukh Khan on sets of Karan Arjun
Opening up about the incident on the sets of Karan Arjun, Salman Khan said, “I got a blank gun from action director Bhiku Verma. A party was going on and there were Rajasthani folk dancers. I told Shahrukh, I'll call you for dance, you refuse, then we will engage in scuffle, and here's a blank gun. I will fire a shot and you will fall down. Shahrukh refused. ‘I am very tired’, he told me."
Further, he continued, "My brother Sohail was there. I pulled Shahrukh's hand, and he snatched it away. He pushed me, so, I pushed him, and a scuffle ensued. I took out the gun and fired a shot at him. Shahrukh did a somersault and fell down.”
The incident had left everyone on the sets in shock and Salman recalled how everyone had reacted and that some of them even wanted to escape the scene thinking that SRK was actually injured. “Javed Saheb's wife Honey (Irani) Aunty was there. She said, I know him since childhood, he's not that type of boy. One journalist Nishi Presm was there. She said, I always knew this boy to be like this. Time Video owner Pravinbhai Shah said, we will all be in a soup, let's rush out," added Salman.
He concluded the incident, "For ten minutes, I stood with red eyes, and said, ‘Koi Nahin uthega, Sabko Maar Doonga (Nobody will get up, I will kill everyone)’. Rakesh ji's hands started trembling. I said, 'Shahrukh Uth, Shahrukh Uth (Shahrukh wake-up)’. When Shahrukh didn't wake up, Sohail and Bhiku Da panicked. I checked my gun. Suddenly Shahrukh started snoring. So, the Pathaan was at last alive. I again fired 3-4 shots, and everybody started laughing.”
The actor also appreciated his friend’s acting chops as he added, “I think Shahrukh is the best perform of the industry. There's no need to say this. This performance was much better than the performance in Karan Arjun. Everybody was convinced and many were trying to flee the set. It was a good experience."
