Shah Rukh was going off when I (Lekh Tandon) glanced at him and was struck by his looks. I asked him to cut his hair because he had long hair. He protested, saying, “I’ll cut my hair and then you won’t cast me. I don’t want to do that.” I assured him I would cast him. Next day, he came with his hair cut. And he was cast in Dil Dariya.
