King Khan needs no introduction. The Badshah of Bollywood is synonymous and is Bollywood himself. With blockbuster movies in the 90s, he has taken the Hindi film industry to every nook and corner of the world.

There isn’t a single country where people do not know about Shah Rukh. The King of Romance is one of the living legends of the film industry and is rightfully called the last of stars. However, there was a time when he was a ‘nobody’.

With no godfather in the film industry, he made his debut and since then has been ruling Bollywood. Recently, actress Juhi Chawla, a good friend of SRK, revealed how the Mannat-owner had no money to pay his car’s EMI and the vehicle was taken away.

“I remember Shah Rukh during those days. He had no home in Mumbai so he’d come from Delhi. Of course, there was nobody to cook for him and I’m not sure where he stayed. Unit ka khaana khaate the, unit ki plate se. Unit ki chai peete the aur unit ke saath bilkul ghul mil ke haasi mazaak, batein karna,” Juhi recalled.

“He had this one car. It was a Gypsy. I remember it was a black Gypsy. He used to do two or three shifts. Humare saath Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman kar rahe the and I think Dil Aashna Hai kar rahe the and then he was doing another film with Divya (Bharti). He used to be working round the clock and he was really driven. For some reason, he had not been able to pay for his car ya EMI nahi di thi. Kuch ho gaya tha and his car got taken away and he had nothing,” she added.

Earlier, speaking to Zoom in 2015, SRK had also shared, “My first Jeep that I had bought during the shoot of Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman was acquired by the bank for non-payment. Juhi then lent me her car for the remaining shoot. Years later, when I was shooting for Trimurti, I was driven around in a car and suddenly I realised that the car looked familiar. Apparently, it was my car which was taken away from me. I used to ride in the car with Jackie Shroff.”
