When Shah Rukh Khan Knocked At Sanjay Dutt's Door For Help...

The two superstars may not be partying together every night, but they definitely have a strong history together. Read on to know about the time when SRK felt he was in danger and went ahead to ask Dutt for help...

People think that Sanjay Dutt may not be the closest of buddies with Shah Rukh Khan, but that's untrue. Not only does Dutt retain his cordial image with Shah Rukh now, but there was a time when he called himself SRK's elder brother. All this throwback gossip was brought to the limelight recently when Sanjay attended the Dr Sanket Bhosale talk show where he spoke very highly of King Khan.

When asked about the time when SRK felt he was in danger and went ahead to ask for help from Dutt, Sanjay reminisced, “Woh kissa mujhe utna yaad nahin hai, Shah Rukh naya tha tab aur main gaya tha. Maine Shah Rukh ko bola tha ki tujhe zindagi mein kabhi kuch chahiye toh maine hamesha rahoonga tumhare saath. Yeh gaadi bhi chahiye toh gaadi rakh, kuch bhi chahiye…Tu akela nahin hai main hoon, teri family hoon main, tera bhai hoon.” (I don’t remember it exactly, it was a long time ago, Shah Rukh was new at that time, and I had gone to meet him. I told him whenever you need me, I’ll always be there. Take my car if you want, whatever you want. You are not alone, I am your family, I am your brother).

Sanjay Dutt Waves Out To Fans

He further added, “Ek bahut khoobsurat cheez Shah Rukh Khan mein hai ki woh insaan woh cheez bhoola nahin hai. Halanki maine aisa kuch kiya bhi nahin. Lekin aaj tak woh bolta hai, uska ehsaas karta hai aur mujhe behad izzat deta hai. Thanks.” (Shah Rukh is such a beautiful human that he hasn’t forgotten about it. Even though I didn’t do anything. But even today he talks about it and gives me so much respect).

So you can see how Shah Rukh, who was just beginning in the film industry went ahead and begged for help from Sanjay, who was by then a superstar.
