During the year 1995, two Bollywood legends including Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan were seen together in the Rakesh Roshan helmed project named Karan Arjun. This was Sallu and SRK’s first project together. The film was a huge success as it got loved by the viewers and fans.
There are a number of reasons behind the success of the movie. The major credit of film’s success went to its hit songs, iconic dialogues like ‘Mere Karan Arjun Ayenge’ and the actors' performances.
Recalling Karan Arjun's special journey on completing 25-years, Sallu stated, "Karan Arjun is a special film. It is the first time that Shah Rukh and I came together on-screen. I have so many beautiful memories attached to this movie. Karan Arjun is a complete entertainment package and even 25 years after its release, fans can sit together with their families and enjoy it."
The film had Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Mamata Kulkarni, Rakhi Gulzar, and Amrish Puri in the noteworthy characters.
While sharing his great experience of working on the iconic movie, film’s director Rakesh Roshan stated, "When I had written Karan Arjun, I knew I had to write a different kind of a story from all the work I had done. Reincarnation as a topic was doing the rounds since the black and white era but when I decided to make a film on the theme but using two brothers, I faced a lot of criticism and rejection. So, I wrote the movie with a different lens like that about a mother-son bond.”
"I had immense belief in the story and somehow knew that my audience would feel and believe every dialogue narrated by the characters. The reaction the movie received then and even today is still overwhelming. The fact that a mother's dialogue like Mere Karan-Arjun Aayenge got the status it has, is all because of the conviction it was delivered with. If at that time they returned from an unimaginable place, it would have been accepted by the audience. Conviction is the one element that is behind the success of the movie and the milestone being celebrated today," the film maker also said.
The iconic flick has completed its successful 25 years a few months back. To celebrate the success, the renowned channel Zee Cinema will air the flick to commemorate the milestone.
