Each and every Bollywood fan knows about the story of his/her favourite artist but there are many stories that we don’t know about Bollywood. Many times it is the case that whatever happens on the sets stays on the sets, but here are some interesting and surprising stories from the sets of different Bollywood movies that should be known to every Bollywood fan.
1- Alia Bhatt had auditioned for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Black’, at that time when she was just 11 years old. She has spent a lot of time with the director and the duo was supposed to do a project also together but things didn’t work out.
2- The melodious song, Agar Tum Saath Ho from the movie Tamasha was the fourth song A.R.Rahman had recorded for the same situation. The cast and crew had shot with a different song and Deepika Padukone thinks it was better than Agar Tum Saath Ho.
3- Varun Dhawan’s ‘October’ has earned him lots of praise because of his acting. However, the actor did not know about the ending of the film and was very angry with Shoojit and Juhi for ending the film the way they did. Dhawan started crying while shooting the end, and it brought out his anger as well.
4- Shah Rukh Khan has not done any biopic in his career. In an interview, he revealed that he said yes to many biopics and they have earned well despite him not doing them. He always felt that the person he was portraying is a real person and might not be what the director wants to show the world.

6- Shah Rukh Khan has a different take on the romance angle of every love story.

All of his love stories have successfully worked not because of his Raj or Rahul roles but because he has empowered the emotions of woman.
