Sunny Deol and Shah Rukh Khan's feud
In 1993, legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra came up with a psychological romantic thriller Darr, starring Juhi Chawla, Sunny Deol and Shah Rukh Khan. That time, Deol was basking in success of Damini which also earned him National Award while SRK was a newcomer trying to gain foothold in the Bollywood.
Yash Chopra gave Deol a choice to play either villain or hero. As expected, he gave his approval for the protagonist while Shah Rukh grabbed the role rejected by Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgn. When the Ghayal actor watched the movie, he felt betrayed that the makers didn't deliver what they mentioned on papers. They glorified villain. Even after the release, it was Shah Rukh who was bestowed with more praises and managed to steal away the limelight from the lead.
The duo allegedly didn’t speak for 16 years after Darr. However, Sunny has maintained that it wasn’t deliberate. "It’s not that I didn’t talk but I just cut myself off and I anyway don’t socialise much. So we never met, toh baat karne ki baat he nahi hai," he had said during India TV's Aap Ki Adalat.
