Sushmita Sen’s illustrious career spans nearly three decades, marked by memorable performances. Among them, her portrayal of Miss Chandni in Main Hoon Na opposite Shah Rukh Khan stands out as a fan favourite. However, Sen recently disclosed that she was initially unaware of her casting alongside SRK.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Sushmita Sen revealed that she wasn’t aware Shah Rukh Khan was a part of Main Hoon Na until she signed the movie. Recalling the shoot of the song ‘Dilbar Dilbar’ for Sirf Tum, choreographed by Farah, she asked, “The day I make a film, will you be my heroine? I said yes, whenever you make it. I’ll be there.” Several years later, when Farah reached out to Sushmita, the actress simply responded, “Tell me where to sign.”
“I never asked her who the hero is, I never asked anything about the movie. She kept her word, I kept mine and I went there,” she said, clueless about who the rest of the cast was. “I walk in very matter of fact and I walk in and go ‘Oh (with a loud gasp)’. I said ‘Farah, why is Shah Rukh Khan here? She said he is also wondering why you are here because nobody had been told anything. It was a surprise. I said when you took a promise from me, you should have told me that Shah Rukh would be in the movie. That’s an amazing thing that happened. She made this film with so much love.”
Main Hoon Na also stars Zayed Khan, Kirron Kher, Boman Irani, Bindu, and Suniel Shetty, among others.
On the work front, Sushmita Sen was most recently seen in season 3 of the crime drama Aarya.
