The recent star-studded awards show for a brand gave Shah Rukh Khan the opportunity to reunite with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on the stage. The former presented the ‘Fanney Khan’ star one of the trophies for the evening, but SRK being SRK, had a heartwarming way to talk about his co-star in as many as six films. ‘King Khan’ rued never getting the opportunity to romance her in his trademark style, after playing siblings in ‘Josh’ and one of them passing away in their next two films ‘Mohabattein’ and ‘Devdas.'
After presenting the award, the actor said, “It was a misfortune for me in my first film that Aishwarya Rai, the most beautiful woman in the world, universe and even beyond, the planets, that she was my sister, (we were) twins. People told me that we looked alike. So even I am living in this misunderstanding that if I was her brother, I do like her. And in ‘Devdas’, it was all set for us, but I left her and then when I returned, she left me. So, it’s my misfortune that with Aishwarya, I never got the chance to love her and she loves me back. In ‘Mohabattein’ she was a ghost, I simply thought that we could do a normal film with love after playing siblings."
SRK also spoke about how they bond with the friendship between their kids AbRam and Aaradhya today. He also shared the anecdote of his little one being convinced about Amitabh Bachchan being his grandfather and quipped how he was not happy about it.
“Now we have become parents, we now meet outside our kids’ school with the children in our arms. Happy birthday to Aaradhya, sorry I couldn’t make it because I was with my daughter. AbRam reached for the bash and he made your father-in-law his father, which I have a problem with.”
