For the past few months rumors of rife between very good friends Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla have been going around. Its been rumored that Juhi Chawla wasn’t happy with Shah Rukh Khan not paying enough visits to her brother, who is in hospital after an accident more than a year ago.
But Shah Rukh Khan has rubbished this news as nothing but tabloid imagination.
“There is so much tabloidism in the work we do and the unfortunate bit is that some people write it and start believing in it. Then to come back and ask us about something that does not exist is a little odd and embarrassing for us because it did not exist in the first place,” he said during a recent event.
“It's like the smallest particle of atom they are still trying to figure out. So, when you ask this to me and Juhi, all of us get a little awkward about why you are asking this, this has never been a problem,” he added.
Shah Rukh Khan said that Juhi will always remain special to him, as she and her family were the first ones to welcome him into Bollywood and their homes.
“When I was new in the film industry, Juhi, her mother, her brother and her whole family looked after me and they have been very kind to me. We are very close friends,” he said.
“I have told her never to leave my side, even if I misbehave publicly and she has said that even if I misbehave and I am ill-mannered, she will still be friends,” he added.
Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla worked together for the first time in ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’. They became good friends during the film’s shooting and went on to do more movies like ‘Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani’, ‘Yes Boss’ and ‘Duplicate’. They later turned their friendship into business partnership.
