In one of the interviews with Simi Grewal, she said her career began with a coin toss. She was offered Shekhar Kapur’s Tara Rum Pum Pum and decided to leave it to fate. She said “It sounds like the perfect story, but no. I think when I met Shekhar, when he wanted to sign me up for Tara Rum Pum Pum, I was just like this little kid looking at Shekhar Kapur.
And I just wanted to be cool, so I said, ‘Okay if it’s destiny then I’ll just flip this coin. I said, ‘Heads, I will take the film as a career and tails, I won’t’.” Tara Rum Pum Pum was shelved and she made her debut with Dil Se. She told Simi at the beginning of her career, she faced so much trouble and was even yelled at by Saroj Khan. Saroj Khan yelled, “Kahaan Se like Aaye ho is Ladki Ko, she does not know how to dance!”She said that there was some connection with Shahrukh Khan. She worked with SRK in many movies – Kal Ho Na Ho, Veer Zara, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna.
In one of the interviews with Bollywood Hungama, she said no one could romance like Shah Rukh Khan. When he starts his dialogue, I would just get lost. I have never used glycerine, I have just looked at him and started crying. She said Shahrukh Khan “ I began my career with Shah Rukh, more than a friend, he has also been my mentor. He taught me everything, from how to stand and how to deliver a dialogue, how to pause in a scene. I love him for that.
