Karan Johar wishes Salman Khan on his 58th birthday

Karan shared a still of Salman Khan as Aman Mehra from his 1998 film. Along with that, he penned a long note, recalling how Salman approached him at a party and promised to play the key role.

“A massive movie star came up to me and asked me why I was standing by a corner… I told him I had been to several actors for a part but was politely rejected,” Karan wrote. Mentioning that Salman’s sister Alvira Khan Agnihotri is close to him, the filmmaker added that it was due to her that the Dabangg actor was convinced to meet him the next day to hear the story.

“In my wildest dreams, I never imagined I would even get the opportunity of a narration …
I went with a prayer in my heart and a deep desire for a miracle and narrated the first of the film like my life depended on it,” Karan wrote further adding that he was worried that Salman might think he was being offered SRK’s role.

It was then that Salman said that the role was special for him as he knew Karan’s father and was doing the film for him.

“I am deeply grateful to Alvira and my father’s goodwill for making sure I had the perfect Aman and SALMAN KHAN in my debut film! Gestures and stories like this just don’t happen today!” Karan concluded while wishing Salman Khan on his birthday.
