Shah Rukh Khan and Deewna Complete 29 years

Shah Rukh Khan & Deewana 29 Years

1.     Hema Malini’s Dil Aashna Hai  and  not Deewana  was  supposed to be Shah Rukh Khan’s  debut film. Hema’s initial  release  on  December 18  1992  got delayed  because of  the Babri Masjid demolition  and the subsequent unrest  in  the country. Technically however Dil Aashna  Hai  was SRK’s  first  film. It finally released  on December 25, two weeks late.

2.     Divya Bharti was an instant star. Shah Rukh Khan had already become the nation’s  sensation. Deewana had released  two months earlier and …well… a star was born! Coincidentally, the late Divya Bharti was SRK’s co-star  in  his first two releases Deewana and Dil Aashna Hai. And though the former released first, SRK had signed the latter first.

3.     Recalling how she signed  Shah Rukh  Hema Malini had told me how he met her as a newcomer in Mumbai and when she told him, she was turning director, he insisted on being in the film. “I told  him very bluntly that the film was based on  the girl’s character. He could play her boyfriend which was a brief role. He insisted on playing the role. I wish I  could give him more to do,” Hema expressed regret. The  film was ripped off from the Shirley Conan bestselling novel  Lace. Many years later Hema directed the same story with her daughter, Esha Deol in the lead in a film entitled Tell Me  Oh Kkhuda. Both the versions of the story were crippling flops. Divya Bharati  had a brief but  brilliant career as a  leading lady before she died under  highly  mysterious circumstances.

4.     Both SRK’s   debut and sophomore films co-starred Divya Bharati. In fact  she played the central  character in  both of Shah Rukh Khan’s  debut and post-debut releases. Shah Rukh Khan recalled Divya as hardworking and focused star material.Death snatched  her away before she could get the stardom she deserved. In 1992  Divya had  two  releases  Deewana and  Shola  Aur Shabnam, both superhits.

5.     The real  star of Raj Kanwar’s Deewana  was meant to be Rishi Kapoor.His song Sochenge  tujhe pyar was  upstaged by Shah Rukh’s introductory song Koi na koi chahiye pyar karne wala. Shah  Rukh’s duet Aisi deewangi dekhi nahi  kabhi  with Divya was  a straight  lift  of the song  the Kannada song Kanasalu Neene Manasalu Neene from the 1976 Kannada movie Bayalu Daari.

6.     Deewana  was the second-highest grossing film of 1992 right behind  Indra Kumar’s Beta  and  ahead of   Mukul Anand’s Khuda Gawah. It made  Raj Kanwar one of the most saleable names among Bollywood directors. Just like Divya, Raj died relatively  young.

7. SRK’s role was  earmarked  for Armaan  Kohli. He  shot for the film  and then walked  out due to  differences with the director.
