Yes, you read that right! Armaan was reportedly offered a lot of movies that he lost out on. The actor was even offered ‘Deewana’ and he dropped out of it. The role was then bagged by Shah Rukh Khan. Talking about the same in an old interview, Armaan had reportedly said that if we start thinking about our pasts and what we could have done, our lives will be hell. So he generally does not sit and regrets. He also added that he lost ‘Deewana’ and Shah Rukh Khan bagged it. Today, SRK is the superstar of the country and he is pretty okay with that.
Even Shah Rukh gave him the credit and thanked him for his stardom in a chat show. The superstar said that Armaan Kohli is responsible for him being a star. SRK also revealed that he had featured on the poster of the film with Divya Bharti and he still has the poster with him.
Talking about the film, Shah Rukh said in an old interview with Filmfare, “I’m glad the film has done so well…But I don’t think I’ve contributed in any way to its success. My performance was awful — loud, vulgar, and uncontrolled. I overacted terribly and I take full responsibility for it… I am my worst critic and when I saw myself on the screen I was appalled. Isn’t it amazing that people have liked me in the film? Perhaps that’s because I am a fresh face. It’s not a performance I’d care to repeat or remember.”
Meanwhile, Armaan Kohli was sent to Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) custody and that ends today. He was arrested following the seizure of 25 grams of MD drugs from his residence in Mumbai.
