Farah Khan reveals Shah Rukh Khan's SHOCKING fee for Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa: 'He earned less than…'

Farah Khan shared an interesting insight into Shah Rukh Khan's early days in the film industry. The choreographer-filmmaker recalled her first meeting with SRK, which was on the sets of Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa in 1994, and said that he earned less than her for the film. She said that she earned Rs 25,000 for the film. Farah added that Shah Rukh also helped her in the film.

Speaking to Radio Nasha, Farah said: “The budget was very low. Shah Rukh was paid Rs 25,000 for that film. I was the highest paid person on that movie, let me tell you. They paid me Rs 5,000 per song and there were six songs. For that alone they paid me 30,000 rupees. We couldn't even afford an assistant. So for the full song 'Aana Mere Pyar Ko', we cast normal people from Goa.”

Farah added that she was “afraid” to meet Shah Rukh because she heard he was “brash and arrogant.” However, her perception of her changed when she met him.

“We started filming in 1991 and I was new too. We were in Goa and I had only read one interview of Shah Rukh in which he seemed very brash and arrogant. He was very scared. I remember what he was wearing and doing when we met; Kundan Shah introduced us. Sometimes you instantly hit it off with someone. You feel like you are friends from school. That's how it was with Shah Rukh. “We had the same interests, we had read the same books, we had the same sense of humor,” Farah added.

Farah and Shah Rukh not only became great friends but also collaborated on many films. She also starred in her first film as a director, Main Hoon Na, followed by Om Shanti Om. She also recently made headlines for hosting a party for Ed Sheeran.

On the work front, Shah Rukh has delivered three hits in 2023: Pathaan, Jawan and Dunki. Now it is rumored that he will star in a film titled King, co-starring his daughter Suhana Khan.
