Mumbai, March 18 (IANS) Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who had turned down the titular role in “Munnabhai MBBS”, says he couldn’t have portrayed the role better than Sanjay Dutt.
“I think that every actor is destined to do certain films. I feel I couldn’t have done it as well as Sanjay Dutt did,” Shah Rukh said.
He said this at the launch of the Bone Marrow Transplant and Birthing Centre of Nanavati hospital here.
Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, “Munnabhai MBBS” was a turning point in Sanjay’s career. He played the role of a lovable goon in the film franchise.
The “Raees” actor also spoke about his meeting with colleague Aamir Khan on various occasions which sparked speculation that they are teaming up for a project.
He said: “I went to his house to wish him on his birthday. We don’t talk work. We haven’t spoken on work for years…There is nothing work wise that we have discussed.”
Shah Rukh also asserted that they used to “meet earlier too. It’s just that the media has started noticing now”.
