Karan Arjun, a reincarnation drama directed and produced by renowned director Rakesh Roshan, is one of the biggest hits of the 1990s Hindi film industry. The film is based on two brothers, Karan Singh and Arjun Singh, who are killed along with their father by their greedy uncle Thakur Durjan Singh, but are reincarnated as Ajay and Vijay in revenge. The two superstars Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan played the dual roles of Karan Singh-Ajay and Arjun Singh-Vijay respectively. His acting was amazing. Amrish Puri gave 100 percent in the villain role. He played the role of Thakur Durjan Singh in the film, while Rakhi appeared as Karan and Arjun’s mother Durga Singh, whose one-liner ‘Mere Karan Arjun Aayenge’ became ingrained in Bollywood pop culture. Even today many memes are made on this dialogue. So, did you know that Rakesh Roshan had considered many actors for the lead role in the 1995 film before signing up with Shah Rukh and Salman? Yes, Shah Rukh and Salman were not the first choices for this film.
Rakesh Roshan wanted to cast these actors in the film Karan Arjun
According to the IMDb trivia page, the pair of Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol were also in the running to play the lead roles in the blockbuster film. When Karan Arjun was named Kainaat, Rakesh Roshan wanted to make a film with the real-life brothers. He also shared the script with Sunny Deol, who loved it, but when the Ghadar 2 actor learned that Roshan wanted another role for Bobby, he refused to do the film as he felt that Bobby, who had not even made his Bollywood debut, would do the same. Until then, the film did not go unnoticed.
For this reason, Sunny Deol refused to work in Karan-Arjun
The most interesting thing is that Sunny and Bobby’s real names are Ajay and Vijay, the same names given to Karan and Arjun in their reincarnations. Karan Arjun had Kajol and Mamta Kulkarni as the two lead actresses opposite Shahrukh and Salman respectively. The film also featured Johnny Lever, Ranjith, Asif Shaikh, Ashok Saraf, Jack Goud and Arjun Feroze Khan in prominent roles.
