When Subhash Ghai brought Dilip Kumar and Raj Kumar together and did not do the whole industry in 30 years
By the year 1990, Subhash Ghai had started counting among the good directors of his era. He had worked with large, small, all types of stars. But his capabilities were not so much that he could bring together two famous superstars of his era. Many people thought in such a movie industry In those same days, Subhash Ghai was planning a film with Dilip Kumar and Raj Kumar. Those two superstars, who had vowed not to work with each other 32 years ago. Subhash went on to not only work with them but also completed the film in only 11 months. The film was ‘Saudagar‘, which was released on August 9, 1991. This movie of Subhash Ghai came and was very liked.
This sounds like a story about a pirate attempt in hearing. But when you find out how Subhash Ghai brought together both of these stars, what was the trouble in doing both the work together, why Raj Kumar started leaving the film on the day before the shoot and when I hit the hit ‘Ilu-Ilu‘ idea Where do you come from, either you will laugh or you will get stressed in your stomach or your senses will become fractured. Read below in detail.
1.) Subhash Ghai brought Raj Kumar and Dilip Kumar together in the film ‘Saudagar’, which was done by someone who did not undertake trials in the last 32 years. But why did these problems happen between them? What happened to S. S. Both of these actors were working together in Vasan’s 1959 film ‘Paigham‘. Raj Kumar was playing the role of Dilip Kumar’s elder brother in the film. In one scene, he had to slap Dilip Kumar. During the shoot, Raj Kumar entered so much into the scene that a really hard hit of Dilip Kumar received his cheek. Dilip Kumar is also a big star. Taken offense And decided that will not work with Raj Kumar. Raj Kumar was also a man with an approach of ‘I Do Not Give A Damn’. They did not make any difference.
2.) Both have not worked for 32 years. A lot of people have explained to Ghai that they do not fall into this trap. But Ghai said, Ghai said, once TRI is made then it becomes. At first, he reached Dilip Kumar’s house. Heard the story etc. Dilip Kumar liked the script. He did yes to film. She had also worked with Subhash Ghai in films such as ‘Vidhata‘ (1982) and ‘Karma‘ (1986). When Ghai got out of there, Dilip Kumar asked him, ‘Who is doing the role of Subhash in this film?’ Ghai first sat in his car and locked the door, then said ‘Raj Kumar’. Until Dilip Kumar said something, Ghai had gone. He did not meet Dilip Kumar for the next 4-5 days.
After this Ghai reached Raja Kumar Home. Raj Kumar was sitting in the evening on the drinks. His scotch love was world famous. Subhash Ghai was still standing in front of the actor who left the movie ‘Zanjeer‘ just because Director Prakash Mehra used to put jasmine oil in the hair. Subhash Ghai narrated him the basic concept of the film and asked for his decision. Raj said, ‘I will do it all! You are a talented director and we are talented actors. ‘His next question was who is doing that second role in this film. Ghai was a part of the industry for a long time. They knew what to say and how to celebrate. Ghai said- ‘You can not make any big actor anymore with you. Dilip Kumar is not, he will do it. Rajkumar took a glass of scotch in his hand and said, ‘Jani, in this Hindustan, after us, we consider somebody an actor, then he believes Dilip Kumar. When Dilip Kumar comes in front of us, the water will come again. ‘Now brother Saab got two main Lead finals of’ Saudagar ‘in this way.
3.) The shooting of the film started. Along with Dilip Kumar, before the scene, Raj Kumar left the film and started leaving. The reason was that Dilip Kumar’s speech was a bit Bihari type, while Raj Kumar’s dialogue was in Hindi. Raj Kumar was known for his stylish dialogue delivery. Raula was his He hurled a lot for Subhash Ghai and said he will not work in this film. Ghai explains that in those days he had learned to manage the stars. He continued to adore Raj Kumar for two hours. But they did not see the thing, they tried an Idea. It is called Ego Massage. He told Raj Kumar that Dilip Kumar’s character is poor, so the language has been kept for his character. You are from the landlord family, talking in such a language will not suit you. The maneuver worked and the prince managed to shoot further after this. Ghai did this work with both the actors during the shooting of the film and also completed the film in 11 months.
4.) A girl from Nepal who came from Nepal, Manisha Koirala was debuting herself. He had signed three films, but before shooting, ‘Saudagar‘ started. As soon as the media and Manisha got some trouble. There were some reverse Disorderly in many newspapers about them. He was angry with this. Ghai’s skirmishes with Manisha about this issue at the time of the release of the film. Ghai wanted to talk to Manisha Media for the publicity of the film. But he was not ready to do this At the same time, Ghai made a strain on Manisha’s fan followings. These things became transformed into the debate. Manisha left the event beach and left with her mother.
5.) The music of this film was also very liked. But there was a song from this album, which was on the verge of every filmmaker. The name of the song was ‘Ilu-Ilu‘. The more fun this song has to say, the more fun it was to be the process of its creation. But most tell me where did this ‘Ilu-Ilu‘ come from? Subhash Ghai told in one of his interviews that when he was studying at the Film and Television Institute of Pune (FTII), he met a girl named Rihanna. This girl’s house was also in the street with the Institute. By keeping eye on Rihanna’s grandfather and father, they used to write love letters to each other. In the end, he used to write ‘Ilu-Ilu‘.
This story was heard by Anand Bakshi, Lyricist Anand Bakshi of ‘Saudagar’. Anand asked, “What is this jealousy?” Then Subhash Ghai told that if this ‘Ilu-Ilu‘ will be written in English, then it will be ILU. Ie I Love You Upon hearing this, Bakshi said that we got the face of the song. And the song ‘What is it?’, The song was filmed on the film actor Vivek Mushran and Manisha Koirala.
