Actor Sharib Hashmi is now riding high on success with his recently released espionage action-thriller series The Family Man 2. As the actor is busy receiving praises for his happy-go-lucky character, Sharib, in a recent interview recalled the time when he first met superstar Shah Rukh Khan while shooting for Jab Tak Hai Jaan. He remembered his first day of shoot with SRK and said that he almost fainted after seeing him in front of him.
In a chat with The Indian Express, Sharib said, “My first day of the shoot was also my first scene in the film when Samar (Shah Rukh Khan) removes the bedsheet from my character Zain’s face. I was rehearsing that scene with an assistant director. In one instance when the bedsheet got removed, I saw SRK himself standing there. He told me ‘Hi I’m Shah Rukh,’ and I almost fainted.” Sharib added that post-pack up, Shah Rukh Khan praised him and said he enjoyed working with him. Even Yash Chopra sir complimented him. During the same interview, he even recalled the time when he met SRK at the film’s premiere and when Shah Rukh called him a good actor and his friend during Star Screen Award night.
“I also met him when I received the Screen Award for Filmistaan (2014). SRK was hosting that segment and when my name got announced, he said Sharib is a very good actor and my friend. Just hearing that from him is so special,” added Sharib.
Sharib Hashmi played the role of Zain, Samar’s friend/roommate (Shah Rukh Khan) in Jab Tak Hai Jaan which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
