Aditya Chopra recalls about Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
Talking about Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Aditya Chopra revealed that he needed to give YRF studios a big successful film which he would have to do it himself. He further added that to make sure his film was a sure-shot hit, he went to London to write his story. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi was indeed a hit film which was loved by everyone and Anushka Sharma couldn’t have had a better debut in Bollywood. But Aditya also said that the problem everyone had was how would Anushka’s character not recognize her own husband in a changed avatar in the film. The film would fail in its premise and that’s when SRK came in. He agreed to play the role of Surinder/Raj. Further Anushka recalled that she was only 19 when she had signed this film and Aditya was adamant on keeping her casting a secret. The filmmaker told the actress she couldn’t even tell her parents. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi not only gave the production banner renewed life but also a grand launch to Anushka’s career.
