For all you Shah Rukh Khan lovers, there’s no doubt about the fact that SRK’s Chalte Chalte is one of the biggest hits of his career. It played a big role in establishing SRK’s niche as a ‘romantic hero’ in Bollywood and right from the story to the music, everything was admired about that movie and rated highly. Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukerji sizzled on-screen and their on-screen romance was love goals for the 90’s generation teenagers.
But readers, do you know that Rani Mukerji wasn’t the first choice for Chalte Chalte and it was actually Aishwarya Rai who was first cast opposite Shah Rukh Khan? So why did Aishwarya Rai get replaced?
Well, as media & tabloids wrote then, it was Salman Khan. As per reports in CineBlitz, Salman Khan & Aishwarya Rai’s relationship had taken a beating then and it was on the verge of an ugly breakup. Reports suggested that Salman Khan had once created a ruckus on the sets of the movie which left Shah Rukh Khan infuriated and because he didn’t apparently want any further trouble, he brought in Rani Mukerji as a replacement.
Well, all said & done, all is well that ends well and Chalte Chalte certainly ended well.
