Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan.
Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan had very rarely acted together in bollywood films, specially after they acquired their stardom over the years. But whenever they acted together the films had been extremely successful.
Rakesh Roshan had made an experiment with both of them in the film Karan Arjun. The film had shown that both the brothers and their mother were ill-treated in a village of Rajasthan by Amrish Puri in the previous life.
The two brothers were killed and Rakhee prayed before God for returning her the children. Both of them were born again. Shahrukh worked in a stable and Salman also had insignificant employement.
Both of them returned to the same village and they were reminded about the evil deeds of the past. They were ably supported by Kajol and Mamta Kulkarni and Johnny Lever. They took revenge against Amrish Puri for his misdeeds.
Although the film was based on fantasy, the presence of the two superstars, and the romantic music of Rajesh Roshan entertained the viewers. The film went a long way in the directorial career of Rakesh Roshan who was appreciated by the viewers for his performance in bollywood films in the 70s, 80s, as a powerful actor.
Both of them also made significant contribution in the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, directed by Karan Johar. Although Salman appeared for a short period at the end of the film, when his marriage was arranged with Kajol, he kept his mark in the small role. Sharukh Khan came in the marriage with his daughter and reminded her about the past. Salman sacrificed his love.
Both of them had appeared in other films also and the viewers expect both of the them to continue their good work in the years to come.
