A video of Shah Rukh Khan from his pre-Bollywood days, anchoring a show on Doordarshan, has now gone viral. The video shows Shah Rukh in loose-fitting shirt and trousers on a programme, where his co-anchor speaks about Kumar Sanu.
Shah Rukh asks, “Kumar Sanu sahab wohi hain, jo Kishore Kumar ke andaaz mein gaana gaate hain? (Isn’t Kumar Sanu the person who sings in Kishore Kumar’s style?)” The anchor responds stating that his voice may sound like Kishore Kumar, but he has his own style.
After a look at the video, one realises that that is the way he was also acting in his early days with a semi-forced stammer.
Interestingly, Sanu went on to sing around 40 songs for Shah Rukh as a playback singer for films including Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, Duplicate, Karan Arjun, Baazigar, Pardes, Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman and the iconic Tujhe Dekha Toh from the film Dilwale Dulhania Ke Jaayenge....
