This Eid has truly turned festive with Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan coming together in the same teaser. The Aanand L. Rai directorial Zero has many elements to look forward to – from the fact that Shah Rukh Khan is playing such a unique role of a dwarf for the first time to Salman doing a cameo. And now that we have got a glimpse of the Salman – Shah Rukh bond in Zero, we can’t wait for it even more!
But after watching the teaser, we are suffering from a Karan Arjun nostalgic hangover. From the scenes of watching Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan dancing to the peppy tunes to the friendly bond portrayed on screen, this teaser has made us desperate to have more of the Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan bonding on screen. But alas! Zero has Salman only in a cameo.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai 
Salman Khan was not the hero! He was asked to do a special appearance by Karan Johar in his debut directorial. The Aman – Anjali – Rahul love triangle in the film was the key point of the film. Even though Salman did a marvelous job in the little screen space he had as a cameo, the Karan Arjun fans were a tad bit disappointed to see the Aman – Rahul bond being so short-lived!
Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega 
Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam 
This film attempted to show the chemistry between Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan in a completely different manner. Despite the fact that the two of them play integral roles in this film with Madhuri Dixit as the leading lady, the duo hardly come together for scenes. Shah Rukh as the jealous husband who hates his wife’s [Madhuri] friendship with her childhood friend [Salman], even though didn’t make wonders at the box office, it did give Karan Arjun fans a ray of hope that the duo will come together for another film. But little did they know that they wouldn’t be reuniting for a film for the next few years to come.
Here, we would like to specifically mention that Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan shared screen space in the song ‘Deewangee’ from Om Shanti Om . The song featured almost every celebrity from the industry and Salman Khan was seen alongside Sanjay Dutt and Saif Ali Khan in this song, besides Shah Rukh Khan.
Soon after Shah Rukh Khan did a friendly gesture for Salman Khan in Tubelight, Salman too announced that he would reciprocate the same by making an appearance in a Shah Rukh Khan film. The result was Zero! And if walking down this memory lane has made you want to see more of them together, here’s a glimpse of the special teaser of Zero that is dedicated to Salman Khan.
After watching this teaser, don’t you think, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan reuniting for a Karan Arjun sequel would be a great idea. Filmmakers are you listening?
