Karan Jo­har’s (right) di­rec­to­rial de­but Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) was a block­buster and Jo­har says that it still amazes him at to how ac­tor Sal­man Khan (left) came on board. The two met on the sets of an on­go­ing re­al­ity show and rec­ol­lected how the ac­tor said yes with­out even find­ing out about his char­ac­ter.

“Karan re­called how he, when talk­ing to Sal­man at (ac­tor) Chunky Pandey’s house be­gan to ask him to join the cast of his film to which Sal­man Khan im­me­di­ately said yes, with­out lis­ten­ing to his char­ac­ter and the film’s sto­ry­line. A source from the sets says, “Karan said, ‘Sal­man Khan told me, Tumhari yeh movie koi pa­gal hi karega aur mein wo pa­gal Hoon!’.” The source added that one of the rea­sons why Sal­man agreed to be a part of the film was out of re­spect for Karan’s fa­ther film­maker Yash Jo­har.
