Chak De! India, the film that made every Indian proud of their national sport all of a sudden, completes 10 years today and everyone has become pretty nostalgic about it. Such Shah Rukh Khan films are not just work of art, they are memories. Everyone of us has an emotion attached to this film. Same goes for SRK. He shot a video for all the fans of the film and narrated an incident about Aryan which will make you laugh. In fact, it’s one of the reasons why he did Chak De! India.
Talking about it, Shah Rukh said, “Funny incident ye tha ki jab maine woh film banana shuru ki usse pehle mei apne bete ko bolta tha ki main tumhe Hockey khelna sikhaunga kyunki mere baap ne mujhe sikhayi thi. Humara national sport hai mere bachche bhi seekhe. One of the other main reason that I really felt ki yeh film banni chahiye kyunki jab maine apne bete ko bola toh he asked how do you play it, with what do you play it. I said there is a stick and a white ball. Mein ekdin aaya aur maine bola ki woh stick and white ball nahi mil rahi hai toh hockey sikhane mei thoda waqt lagega…Main leke aata hu kahi se… and he went maine seekh li hockey aur mere paas stick bhi aur white ball bhi. He took to me to his friends’. They were playing billiards with a white ball and hitting it with a stick. I just felt that mere apne bete ko hockey ke baare kitna kam pata hai.” Well, we are pretty sure Aryan must have learnt a lot from the film. He did have a lot more to say about the film in this video. Check it out right here…
