Rajkumar Hirani On Noticing SRK First Time In 'Circus'
He also shared the first time that he thought about casting Shah Rukh in his movie. And, at the time, Hirani had not even become a film director. "I used to study at a film institute and I used to wonder, 'I am graduating from here, but who would work with me?’ I used to look at big stars like Bachchan sahab and think, 'Why would a star like him work with me?' So, one day, in my hostel's TV room, I was watching "Circus'. In a particular scene, a young actor was performing at a platform. It was a big monologue. I thought, 'Who is this guy? This is so wonderful. He is not a big actor. I can take him in my film after I graduate'," shared Hirani. "However, I couldn't work with Shah Rukh after I graduated from the film institute. It took me two years to graduate from the film institute and by that time SRK had become a big star."
