Lahore: (Web Desk) Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s movies are sold hand in hand and many of his movies are such that people stand in line to buy tickets to see. According to Indian media, there was a movie for which tickets were sold
Shah Rukh Khan himself came out and sold his movie tickets. The film was a romantic comedy film released in 1994, directed by Kundan Shah and starring Suchitra Krishnamurthy, Deepak Tejuri and Naseeruddin Shah. The film was critically acclaimed and won several awards at the 39th Filmfare Awards. Shah Rukh Khan sold advance tickets for the movie ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naam’ at Mumbai’s Getty Galaxy Theater. Interestingly, a huge amount of Rs 25,000 was also paid to him. This became a trend in 1994 as other actors followed the same promotional strategy. According to Indian media, Shah Rukh Khan was not the first choice of the film. Earlier, the director wanted to include Aamir Khan and Johi Chawla in the film but for some reason Shah Rukh became a part of the film. As time went on, Aamir reportedly lost interest in the film. On the other hand, Johi left Kundan Shah’s film due to his scheduling problems, but the actress had promised to make a special appearance. Shah Rukh’s performance was later remade in Telugu in 1999 under the name Khawablokam, before which Kabhi Han Kabhi Na was also compared to the 2009 Hollywood film 500 Days of Summer.
