Mumbai, November 13, 2020: Apart from his films, Shah Rukh Khan is known for his charming looks and witty sense of humour in Bollywood. He might be a superstar today, but when he entered the film industry, he was like everybody else. Sharing some memories of the time, his co-star and friend Juhi Chawla once revealed secrets about his food habits on the sets.
In a throwback interview with Filmfare, Juhi had said, “When Shah Rukh Khan came into the industry from Delhi, he didn’t have a home as such in Mumbai. He would have the unit food, in the same plate as others. He would even have set ki chai. He mingled with everyone. He was so simple. Then later on after marriage, he began getting food from home. Even then he would only have chicken tikka and sukhi si roti.”
Elaborating further, the actress added, “He would eat for the sake of eating. If you didn’t tell him it was lunch break, he would happily keep on working. He was so pagal about work that food never entered his mind. I am sure he is the same today. Simple healthy food is what he likes. He doesn’t make a fuss over food. And that’s an admirable quality in itself.”
Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla have worked together in films like, ‘Darr’, ‘Duplicate’, ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’, ‘Dil Hai Hindustani’, and others.
