Do you remember King Khan’s Baadshah movie? It completed its 20 years of release. A kid who Shah Rukh Khan saved from the kidnappers in the movie has now grown up. Sonu was the name of the kid, who was the center of the plot.
King Khan is known as the Baadshah of Bollywood or the King of Romance, and the term Baadshah means King and thus, Abbas-Mustan directorial released in 1999, was given the same name.
There was a child featured in the movie named Karishma Jain Chhajer, who was saved by Baadshah (Shah Rukh Khan in the movie), from the kidnappers and we have also seen a bomb blasts in the end. The child back then has now grown-up.
Karishma who played the role of the child in the movie is the niece of Baadshah's producer Ratan Jain in actual. He is the owner of Venus. She has completely transformed after 20 years.
Karishma has gone down to the memory lane and recalled all the incidents that happened during the shoot in an interview.
She said during the shoot my first scene with Shah Rukh sir was, where we were climbing a flight of stairs when he was rescuing me from the kidnappers.
The original scene was that he was supposed to lift me and climb… He then came down and told Abbas uncle, “Iss scene ko thoda change kar sakte hai kya? Baby thodi si heavy hai.” ....(she laughs)
“Then there’s a sequence where the kidnapper, played by Saurabh Shukla, urges me to talk on the phone with Shah Rukh Khan. So here I am supposed to slap Saurabh Shukla. I was however slapping him very aaram se. He’s an adult after all. I was eating cheese balls in this scene and due to so many retakes, the snack was about to get over. This is when Abbas uncle spoke to me. He told me to imagine that those cheese balls have been snatched away by Saurabh Shukla and hence I have to get angry and slap him. That was it. I then slapped him really hard and the shot was okayed in one take! My first ever shot for the film was when I tell those two bald actors, ‘O Taklu uncle, chocolate do na’ and I slap them on their bald plate. So I banged their hard really hard! One of those actor even told me ‘Aap ne bahut hi zor se maar diya’! Hence when I was supposed to slap Saurabh Shukla, I was very apprehensive,” she added up.
She added up that while growing up she came to know that she feels happy behind the camera than in front of it, henceforward she handles the Venus YouTube channels.
