The role that Shah Rukh Khan has played in ‘Deewana’ was earlier offered to actor Arman Kohli. He also started shooting but due to a disagreement with the director of ‘Deewana’, Arman Kohli left the film ‘Deewana’ and then Shah Rukh Khan played the role.
The film ‘Deewana’ was entirely centered on actors Rishi Kapoor and Divya Bharti. Half the film is followed by Shah Rukh Khan’s entry. This means that Shah Rukh Khan’s debut was not in a lead role but in a supporting role. Also, Shah Rukh Khan did full justice to his character in ‘Deewana’.
According to the information received, the reason behind Shah Rukh Khan getting this role in ‘Deewana’ was Shekhar Kapoor because it was because of him that Shah Rukh got this role. At that time Shah Rukh Khan had 4 to 5 films. Also, when Shah Rukh Khan heard the script of ‘Deewana’, he immediately said yes.
After the success of ‘Deewana’, Shah Rukh Khan said in an interview that the success of ‘Deewana’ is a good thing for its producer and director. Also, I didn’t do anything in it because, I didn’t like my work and it feels like I was over-acting in ‘Deewana’.
Actor Arman Kohli made his Bollywood debut in the 1992 film Virodhi. Armaan Kohli was then offered the role in the film ‘Deewana’ which was later played by Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh Khan made his film debut with ‘Deewana’. In a conversation with ‘Bollywood Hungama’, Arman Kohli said that he has no regrets about the old thing. Shah Rukh Khan got the movie ‘Deewana’ and became a superstar. I don’t care.
In another interview, Shah Rukh Khan said, “I thank Arman Kohli for my career.” Armaan Kohli is responsible for making me a star. He was seen with Divya Bharti in the first poster of ‘Deewana’. I still have that poster today. Thanks to Armaan Kohli for making me a star.
