Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan starrer Karan Arjun is one of the cult films from the ‘90s . The film got loved from the audience and had done a great business at the box-office. Since then Salman and SRK too have, numerous times, danced to songs from the film, at various TV shows and events. Karan Arjun went on to be nominated for 10 Filmfare Awards and won for Best Action and Best Editing. However, you might surprise Salman Khan wasn’t the first choice to play Karan in the film but it was Ajay Devgn.
according to a report in Bollywoodlife, Rakesh Roshan had set his eyes on Ajay Devgn. The report suggests that while Ajay was keen, due to certain differences had decided to not do the film and the role eventually landed with Salman Khan.
Not just Salman Khan’s role, Ajay Devgn has another deep connection with Karan Arjun. His wife Kajol was paired, opposite Shah Rukh Khan and who can forget the steamy romantic number between SRK and Kajol titled Jaati Hoon Main.
While we have seen Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan share screen space several times post Karan Arjun, in films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, London Dreams and Son of Sardar.
