Very few know about their relationship – the star, who is known for everything aspirational, Shah Rukh Khan, and director Anurag Kashyap. Their friendship sounds unlikely but Anurag Kashyap tells that their bond is over 20 years old and it is so dear to the director that he knows his filmography would remain incomplete if it doesn’t feature at least one film with Shah Rukh Khan.

In an interview, that was held during the ongoing ‘India and the world – The Changing Narrative’ film festival conceptualised by writer Anuraadha Tewari, which Anurag Kashyap inaugurated, as the director shared his views on films, he also shared about his camaraderie with Shah Rukh Khan, and the reason they connected to working with each other many times over the last few years.

It was heard for the longest time, that Shah Rukh Khan was supposed to do Anurag Kashyap’s No Smoking (2007), which was given to actor John Abraham. And SRK was indeed keen to do the film but it was Anurag Kashyap, who “went away from him”. “Shah Rukh Khan wanted to do No Smoking, he was very upset when I went away from him. I also went to him with Allwyn Kalicharan. I wanted to do that with him and a big superstar from Hollywood. Everything was almost done but then again (it didn’t happen),” Anurag Kashyap said that he is certain they will team up with each other one day.

“But we will work together. I won’t go anywhere without making a film with Shah Rukh Khan,” the director said with a child-like enthusiasm. But Kashyap is also sure that he will go to Shah Rukh, who also happens to be his Delhi University senior, with a script only when “the actor looks at him as a filmmaker and not a junior.”

“I will write a film that will lure him. He should be attracted to it, he should be dying to do the film. That’s only when it can happen.” The fact that Shah Rukh, perhaps, looks at the filmmaker like a junior became evident when Kashyap shared how the actor keeps advising him to do things his way to achieve bigger successes. “He is my senior from university, he has been there like a big brother helping me. Shah Rukh is super successful. When he loves you, he approaches things like, in my struggling years, (he used to tell me), ‘If you do what I tell you to do, your problems will disappear’. But I didn’t want him to make my life, I love him to death.”

They didn’t allow difference in opinion in terms of career choices to affect their friendship. In fact, Anurag Kashyap, who is notoriously famous as a non-conformist in Bollywood, said he can’t dare defy Shah Rukh.

“He is the only guy I can never speak up to. I can fight with the world but him. If he scolds me, l’ll sit in a corner and cry. He is someone I have this love for. He’s the only guy I can’t fight with. He always makes fun of me, bullies me. He says ‘Agar main bolta na woh Wasseypur ka dialogue toh teri picture zyada badi hit ho jaati.’ (If I had spoken the dialogues of Wasseypur, your film would have been a bigger hit) He’s like that. He is super charming, he can charm everyone around him,” the director said.
