This Day That Year: Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan’s second film together released 21 years ago today – watch video


Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are two of the biggest superstars of not just Hindi film industry or India but probably of the world. The first time the duo starred together was in 1995 blockbuster, Karan Arjun. The film was a huge success at the box office and had Salman and Shah Rukh Khan playing brothers of two births on the big screen. Apart from Karan Arjun if you ask even their die-hearts they’ll name as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai the second film they were seen together in. But what many are not aware of is the fact that the very next year in 1996, both Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan were seen in another film. However, this time Shah Rukh Khan was in a special appearance and Salman Khan in a guest appearance.
