Shah Rukh did DDLJ for Salman

It's a well-known fact that Salman Khan plays a mentor to the newcomers in the Tinsel ville. But, little did one knew that he had guided the Baadshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh too in the past.

Apparently, unraveling the secret behind playing lover-boy Raj in DDLJ, Shah Rukh stated that he took up the role because friend Salman had prophesied that DDLJ would do much better than his 1989's 'Main Pyaar Kiya'.

After playing negative characters on the silver screen, Shah Rukh was hesitant to play a romantic hero. But, it was Salman who had convinced him to take up the role.

Salman told that the movie will leave cash registers ringing at the box-  office, added Shah Rukh.

These revelations came on Sunday, when the superstar was having a great time laughing his heart out on the popular comedy show 'Comedy Nights with Kapil'.

When asked about his equation with Salman, King Khan wittily answered that he is a loyal friend of Salman and will continue to be.

Recently, during  the DDLJ 1000 weeks celebration at Maratha Mandir , co-star Kajol revealed that Shah Rukh has a secret dream of playing an action hero.

Admitting that it was true, Shah Rukh articulated, “Yes, I wanted all my life to be what her husband is, Ajay, I wanted to be ACTION JACKSON really, I am telling you. But, theek hai, main nahi ho saka”.

To this, Kajol quipped,  “You are love Jackson."

Well, DDLJ's tremendous success has proved that Shah Rukh is truly the "Love Jackson" of B-town.
