Shah Rukh Khan wants Salman Khan to do a cameo in his next film with Anand L Rai
"Ye bandhan to pyaar ka bandhan hai... janmon ka sangam hai" — This song from Rakesh Roshan's 1995 Shah Rukh-Salman-starrer Karan Arjun is a reminiscent of the bond these two actors have shared throughout their film career.
Often pitted as rivals, they have had really rough times in the past, where both of them have not missed any opportunity to diss each other (in a subtle way). They also share a deep friendship.
They started their careers almost at the same time and have ruled the industry since. In these years, as a token of their bonhomie they have made special appearances/cameos, and even acted in a supporting role, in each other's films. Remember Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega, Hum Tumhare Hai Sanam, and much recently Tubelight?
Shah Rukh Khan played the role of a magician Gogo Pasha in Tubelight who instills confidence in Salman's character in the film.
Now, after this, there were speculations that Salman might also return the gesture by appearing in one of Shah Rukh's upcoming movies. But now, Shah Rukh himself confirmed the news and said that he and Aanand L Rai are trying to rope in Salman for a small guest appearance in their upcoming 'dwarf' film.
The superstar spoke to DNA and said, "There is a guest appearance in Anand’s film that I’d like Salman to consider. We are still working on it. But, I would like him (Salman Khan) to play the role. Whether he is playing himself or not, just like Gogo Pasha’s role, we will keep it a secret till the end.”
Aanand L Rai's film is yet to be titled and stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma along with Shah Rukh Khan.
