Actor Manoj Bajpayee recalled how he didn’t even have footwear to realize entry right into a nightclub, again when none apart from Shah Rukh Khan turned his chaperone to 1 after they have been each college students at Barry John’s performing studio.
In an interview with Galatta Plus, Manoj spoke about how Shah Rukh was the one who launched him to nightlife, and mentioned that regardless that he stays ‘good friends’ with different batchmates of his, Shah Rukh has gone on to realize unprecedented heights in his profession.
Asked concerning the story, he mentioned, “Shah Rukh is such a big star, anything I say about him becomes news,” he mentioned with amusing. “Shah Rukh was with Barry, I was with Barry, at the same time. So many friends who were there that night, I am still in touch with them, still very good friends. Shah Rukh’s life has become different from us. I still remember looking for shoes to get into the discotheque, because I was in chappals.”
Describing the membership as ‘dark and dingy’, he added, “It was in Delhi, Maurya. Ghungroo was the name of the discotheque, if I remember correctly. Yes, Shah Rukh and Benny and Rama, these were the people who took me. That was the first time I experienced a discotheque.”
Previously, in an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Manoj had recalled about Shah Rukh, “…he was the only one who used to come in Maruti Van. In those days a Maruti Van, red colour, I still remember. He is the one who has taken me to a discotheque for the first time in Delhi. I mean we were very young, we had kind of just gotten out of our adolescent age and we met. He was part of Barry John’s group for some time.”
He added, “We used to share cigarettes, beedis, whatever we could afford. He was always a charmer, always very popular with the girls in the group which we invaded. He always had his way with words.”
Manoj is among the many most acclaimed actors within the nation, whereas Shah Rukh is perhaps India’s biggest star. Incidentally, each appeared within the 1989 TV movie In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones, and the 2004 epic Veer-Zaara.
