Can you believe it?
Shahrukh Khan, the King Khan actually walked unnoticed through the city streets on the sets of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi!
This happened due to the ‘ordinary’ look that he sports in the first half of the ‘extraordinary love story’.
Shahrukh had himself suggested this look for his character, Surinder Sahni in the movie. He says that he identifies more with this character of an ordinary guy than with Rahul or Raj. He wants everyone to say “we want to be Suri” rather than “we want to be Rahul or Raj.”
But the interesting part is that with his ugly moustache and a boring hairstyle, no one could recognise him at the sets for the first seven-eight days!
He admits, “I got a taste of things that will come 30 years later in my life when I will no longer be a star and nobody will recognise me. I think that is the most memorable moment but I hope it never happens to me ever again because not to be recognised after 20 years of such high recognition is something I wasn’t ready for.”
We understand! For a star, who is so used to the limelight that he has to think even before falling ill, or it would be all over the next day’s newspapers… it would have been quite a traumatic experience!
