After having a profitable begin in his profession, Mohnish Bahl’s skilled life underwent a damaging change, the place he began receiving fewer and fewer film gives. However, later, Mohnish did make a comeback to the business and was as soon as once more seen in filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya‘s household drama Vivah.
In a latest chat with Bollywood Hungama, Mohnish opened up about his journey within the business and sharing display screen area with cinema icons like Rajinikanth and Shah Rukh Khan.
Speaking about Shah Rukh, Mohnish showered quite a lot of reward on the celebrity and stated that SRK is a whole gentleman: “Shah Rukh is a thorough gentleman. We did quite a few films after that like Army (1996), Koyla (1997) and Duplicate (1998). He was a very warm person. We shot in Mauritius and I remember my wife Ekta and his wife Gauri got along really well. So yeah he’s a very nice person. And he’s a remarkable person.”
Another cinema legend Mohnish has collaborated with is celebrity Rajinikanth. Mohnish and Rajinikanth shared display screen area in Meri Adalat (1984). At the time, Mohnish was unaware of Rajinikanth’s star standing, and stated that his stature in society was revealed to him by his driver.
“One day, I was being driven back from the sets of Meri Adalat to the hotel. The driver pointed at a structure on the road and told me in broken English, ‘Sir Rajini sir building’. I understood that he told me that it is Rajinikanth’s building. I asked, ‘So you mean to say that our film hero, Mr Rajinikanth, lives in this building?’. He replied, ‘No no…his building’. I told him that I didn’t understand. He informed me that he owns this building. We went a few meters ahead and again, ‘Sir Rajini building’. I was like, ‘Didn’t he own the building we saw previously?’. He said, ‘No, this building also’ (laughs)! He showed me three more buildings which were also owned by him. I asked the driver, ‘Is Rajinikanth a big film star?’. He told me, ‘Sir, top film star. Superstar. You don’t know, sir?’.”
During the chat, Mohnish Bahl opened up about essentially the most profitable film of his profession, Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit-starrer Hum Aapke Hain Koun (HAHK). Stating that it is rather troublesome to foretell what’s going to work on the field workplace and ring a bell with the viewers, Mohnish recounted a humorous early response to HAHK.
“The film industry thinks in terms of what works. I don’t blame them. When Hum Aapke Hain Koun was released, some said that ‘Yeh toh Punjabi shaadi ka video hai,’” the actor talked about evenly.
