The entire Bollywood community as well as the country were shocked by Divya Bharti’s tragic and untimely death at the young age of 19. She collaborated with various A-list performers that dominated the 90s entertainment business during her brief but significant career between 1990 and 1993.
Aamir Khan, known as Mr. Perfectionist, was one noteworthy actor with whom Divya never had the chance to share the screen. Let’s explore the tale of how Aamir consistently turned down Divya’s offers to collaborate, causing tension between the two.
Since 1992, when they were scheduled to perform together during a London tour, Divya and Aamir have been at odds. But after Divya made a small error during a live show, Aamir declined to perform with her. Aamir, who is renowned for his attention to detail, took offence despite the fact that the error hardly stood out and chose to perform with Juhi Chawla instead. He even withdrew from a medley that was supposed to feature Divya. Divya was devastated and inconsolable after this rejection, but Salman Khan intervened to perform with her and gave her encouragement.
Unfortunately, this incident was the start of Divya and Aamir’s relationship going downhill. When it came to the casting of the 1993 movie ‘Darr,’ things got worse. Divya was originally paired with Sunny Deol in the character of Kiran Awasthi. But rumours soon spread that Divya was cut from the movie because of disagreements with Yash Chopra, the movie’s producer and director. An previous interview with Divya’s mother revealed the facts about how she was replaced.
According to her mother’s admission, Aamir Khan used considerable pressure to get Juhi Chawla cast in ‘Darr,’ which resulted in Divya being fired from the movie. Sunny Deol wanted Divya to be his co-star when he signed on for the movie. Aamir pushed on Juhi Chawla, though, and she was eventually paired with Sunny. Unfortunately, Divya and her family were in America at the time for a few shows, so they were astonished to learn that Sunny, Juhi, and Aamir had been cast instead. It seemed that the choice to replace Divya with Juhi was mostly influenced by Aamir. In the end, Shah Rukh Khan was cast in Aamir’s place, and he was replaced in the movie.
The conflicts between them during their time in the industry were revealed by Aamir Khan’s repeated refusals to work with Divya Bharti. Their unrealized collaborations serve as a moving reminder of the beauty that may have happened on the big screen if things had gone differently. Fans still lament Divya’s exit from the entertainment industry and speculate about what may have been if she and Aamir had worked together.
