As a lot as we love Shah Rukh Khan as Ram in Main Hoon Na, we are able to’t neglect how he was ably supported by Zayed Khan’s Lucky within the movie. The movie has gone on to turn into fairly widespread amongst mainstream cinema lovers however do you know that Zayed scored the coveted half even earlier than his debut movie launched?

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Zayed remembered how within the early days, Farah Khan didn’t wish to entertain him. Zayed was attempting to get in contact with Farah for a track for Chura Liya Hai Tumne, unaware of the truth that the choreographer was planning to make a debut as a director. Remembering the largest hit of his profession, Zayed Khan spoke about his first assembly with Farah Khan at Red Chillies Entertainment. He additionally recalled his not-so-comfortable dialog with Shah Rukh Khan.

“I was wanting Farah to do a song for my film Chura Liya Hai Tumne. She didn’t know me very well. I was always introducing myself as Mr Sanjay Khan’s son and Fardeen Khan’s brother because nobody knew me at that time. She said come over. She was at Shah Rukh Khan’s office. She said, ‘What are you doing?’ I told her I was doing a film. She said she is considering me for a role in Main Hoon Na,” Zayed remembered.

He added, “In walks Shah Rukh Khan. Very magnanimous and lovely gentleman. He sat me down and said, ‘How are you Zayed? We are looking for a second lead in the film. And Farah said you might be a good potential. But bhai ek baat bata, tujhe acting aati hai na? (You know how to act, right?) I was a little sort of disturbed by that question.”

Zayed stated in his head he had a special response for Shah Rukh’s query, however he stated one thing else. “In my head, I wanted to say that I am born in a family of actors. So, naturally, acting is in my blood. But of course, I said, ‘Come on man, I am born to act’ and all of that. Now, rest is history,” he continued. “I showed Farah some of my rushes and before she sat in her car, she said, ‘Send me your measurements, you are in my film,’” he concluded.

Main Hoon Na marked Farah’s debut and was a blockbuster with Amrita Rao, Sushmita Sen and Suniel Shetty enjoying pivotal roles.
