After Shah Rukh Khan did a cameo in Salman Khan’s recently released Tubelight, the latter returned the favour by making an appearance in Shah Rukh’s next with Aanand L Rai. King Khan has now revealed how Salman came on board.

It all happened when Salman casually walked into SRK’s house when Rai was also present. “We were at home. Aanand was there when Salman just walked in to say ‘hi’ to me. He got his new e-cycle for me and for Aryan and Suhana as well. Aanand said I should ask him. I said, ‘Salman, there’s one role’, he said, ‘Yeah, let me know’. Then, everything just worked out perfectly. He had two days off, we needed 10 days to put up the set,” said the actor to a news agency. 

While being grateful to Salman, Shah Rukh also disclosed how Salman and Rai were supposed to work together once. “He is very kind. This (role) was written a long time back in the film, from the first narration onwards. Salman has also heard the script. I think Aanand wanted to make the film with him at one time. They didn’t have the time, things didn't work out and VFX wasn’t ready,” added Shah Rukh.

Some parts of the yet-to-be-titled film are ready and Shah Rukh is very impressed with what he has seen so far. “He (Rai) has edited some portions. We have a good amount of film ready. He said, ‘Sir, please watch it, it’s looking good and this is without the technical part.’ It’s a really interesting and exciting film. I am saying it’s good not because I am showing off, but it’s so different. We are really happy with what we have achieved so far,” said Shah Rukh. 

The film also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
