It’s a tough order to live up to, but we hear that the superstar’s leading lady was told to take cue from Kajol of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge for the romantic scenes in Yash Chopra’s latest love story
Out of all of Shahrukh Khan’s leading ladies, Kajol undoubtedly shares the best onscreen chemistry with the badshah of romance. It’s not that he doesn’t look good with Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone or Anushka Sharma. The camera captures the awe and adulation the pretty young ladies have for the superstar. But whenever SRK has shared the screen space with Kajol, Madhuri Dixit or Juhi Chawla, the physicality and mental understanding between them has been natural and plausible. SRK and Kads look the best together though. May be because they were young and walking the same road to stardom together made them look most comfortable with each other.
Recently, during the shoot of Yash Chopra’s romantic drama, SRK’s newest co-star Katrina Kaif was experiencing difficultly looking in love with the superstar. Probably because she was too much in awe of the king of romance! To make things simple and easy for the Chikni Chameli, Chopra senior’s son Aditya, who is supposed to be directing the romantic scenes in the film, told her to keep in mind the playful and uninhibited Kajol of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. In fact, the love scenes between SRK-Kat are inspired from SRK-Kajol’s equation in the romantic blockbuster.
Katrina is definitely happy with the way the romance in the film has turned out. “I’d like to think Shah Rukh and I share the same on-screen chemistry as he did with Kajol and Madhuri. I’ve learnt a lot by simply observing him especially in the romantic sequences,” she said in an interview.
