Jaideep Ahlawat recalls ‘star-struck’ moment with Shah Rukh Khan
The Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees was directed by Rahul Dholakia and was the first team-up between King Khan and Jaideep. Now, in a recent interview, Jaideep has opened up about being left star-struck and he did the film only for Shah Rukh Khan. During the interview, Jaideep said, “The call time for my first scene was 9.40 in the morning. I was sitting, when suddenly Khan sahab walked in and the whole atmosphere changed, and we greeted each other. It was all ok, I am trained for this (as an actor). I kept looking at him, not making it too obvious. Then we did the rehearsal, spoke our lines.”
He also said, “But when the actual take began, then King Khan became the actor King Khan. I just kept looking at him, thinking, ‘I have seen this face millions of times!’ and I became the audience, I forgot that I am an actor. I have been star struck only once in my life and it was with him”
Further, he also shared how King Khan helped him calm down during the shoot and he became more comfortable in the presence of SRK. He said, “Now, I am running ten second late (in my reaction). So of course, Khan sahab figured, he is such a big man. He called for a quick five-minute break and tried explaining to me what all has happened so far in the story leading to that specific scene so that I could relate better. He knew that I had to first calm down, so that I can be normal. The five-minute break turned into 15-min and he just kept talking to me. Because of that conversation, I became comfortable in his presence and that scene was done in one take.”
Shah Rukh Khan is enjoying the glorious success of the Atlee-directed Jawan. The film also stars Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Priyamani, and Sanya Malhotra among others. Jawan is produced by Gauri Khan under the banner of Red Chillies Entertainment.
On the other hand, Jaideep Ahlawat will be seen in Jaane Jaan. Releasing on Netflix, Jaane Jaan will begin streaming on 21 September 2023.
