The movie ‘Pardes’, featuring Shah Rukh Khan, turned 25 years old on Tuesday and director Subhash Ghai delved into memories from the film’s set. Speaking about his experience working with SRK, Ghai told news agency ANI that while filming, he had to keep reminding King Khan in every scene that he had to avoid his romantic side to justify his character in the film.
Ghai said, “I kept reminding him in every scene and song that he has to avoid his compelling, romantic side to justify Arjun’s character. It was challenging for him but he nailed it! Adding that he is glad that Pardes has completed 25 years of its release, Subhash Ghai stated, “I am overjoyed over the fact that my baby is celebrating its silver jubilee and continues to receive unwavering adulation from the audience even after 25 years. I pour my heart and soul into every film of mine. Filmmaking is indeed a business but a business of the heart wherein you pour out all that you have for the audience to rejoice and relish.”
Recalling directing the film, Ghai said, “Pardes is a very dear film to me. I would like to congratulate the entire cast and crew and especially the audience for continuing to shower their love even after 25 years. My team tells me that people keep on showering their love, keep recalling the iconic scenes in the digital arena even today.”
