Arjan Aujla played Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s son in My Name Is Khan, he is all grown up now!
The movie My Name is Khan was appreciated by many, it was a critically acclaimed movie and won the hearts all over the globe. It was one of the last films of SRK and Kajol together and this is also one reason behind its immense popularity.
One of the characters who stole our hearts, was Sam, Kajol’s son in the movie. The 12-year-old showed wonderful acting skills which were praised by many.
However, have you ever wondered what it takes a child actor to work with King Khan at such a young age? Well, Arjan Aujla shared his feelings to Pinkvilla in an interview.
According to him, for a child actor who has acted with a big actor in the past in a big banner, it’s difficult to get your hands on the role.
The lad has been quoted as saying,, “Many people feel isne Dharma ke saath kaam kiya hai toh wohi launch karenge isko. That’s not it. This was 10 years ago; I have maintained touch with them but they are also extremely busy. They aren’t waiting for someone like me to come so that they offer me a film. I’m not a star kid; I won’t be offered a film immediately. That’s the truth and reality of it. I do have to work for it. I regularly get audition calls from all casting companies in Bollywood, be it Mukesh Chhabra or YRF and Shanoo Sharma. Even though they know I’ve worked in MNIK, the only notion they might have is that I might have an air about myself because I worked with SRK at such an early age. But when they get to know me, they know the truth that it’s not like that.”
On asking that is he recognized now by the public, he told the portal, “There have been a few times but many times, they haven’t. Because I was really young when it happened but now, it doesn’t happen. It was 10 years ago and I also don’t look the same anymore.”
