(you don’t see evil monkey and laughing emoji).”

In 2019, Karan had said that Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was the most “politically incorrect” film. According to a report in Indian Express, Karan remembered what Shabana Azmi told him. He said, “He said to me, ‘What did you show? That a girl has short hair, so she’s not attractive, and now her hair is long and she’s beautiful? What do you have to say to that?’ I said sorry. He said, what? Is that all you have to say;”. I said yes because I know you’re right.”

Recently, in an interview with Humans of Bombay, Kajol was asked about her (Anjali) role in the film. She had said, “My version of Anjali would never wear a saree. He would wear those pants and the great, expensive sneakers with them and make it look good. On a script level, maybe I would go with Salman’s character, but in the film, if you see the film, there is no choice for the ending, it has to be the way it is.”

Karan recently wrapped up the shooting of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The family drama features Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi, Jaya Bachchan Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh in lead roles. The film marks Karan’s comeback as a director after Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016). The film is slated to hit theaters on July 28.

Shah Rukh will be seen in Jawan, helmed by Atlee. The film, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, will release on September 7. The film also stars Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi in pivotal roles. Apart from this, Shah Rukh will also be seen in director Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming film Dunki opposite actress Taapsee Pannu.
