MUMBAI: Deepak Tijori is a well-known celebrity of the 1990s and recalls being offered Baazigar before it landed in Shah Rukh Khan's kitty. Baazigar was released in 1993. The film was a turning point in Shah Rukh's career and was directed by the duo Mustan-Abbas. It was rumored to be an unofficial remake of A Kiss Before Dying. Kajol played a major role in the movie, which also marked Shilpa Shetty's acting debut. Deepak stated that he had offered the director team the idea of recreating the movie in an interview from the previous year.

However, Deepak cleared in a recent interview that Baazigar was never offered to him. He also mentioned that at the time he was working on a different movie with the director's team.

“In our trade, in our business, we don’t hang on to things. We move on, we let things go. So whatever really happened, it wasn’t like I was offered, I was simultaneously making another set up with the same directors. But things went haywire. I believe no matter what, it’s just a matter of time and a matter of work, my actual work starts now. So I think the better of me will be seen now,” he told the popular entertainment portal.

In an interview with the popular news portal last year, Deepak claimed he had watched A Kiss Before Dying and told the story to Abbas-Mastan. They loved the film and he suggested they remake it for Bollywood. “I said I want to play this bad guy because A Kiss Before Dying was about Matt Dillon being a bad guy,” he said last year.

However, he later realized that the filmmakers were making the film with SRK and was shocked. He reached out to Shah Rukh, who was his friend at the time, and asked him not sign the film. “When I met Abbas-Mustan, they told me, ‘Deepak ji galti ho gayi hai (We have made a mistake) We will compensate. We will do something together in the future,” he said. Deepak hinted that he was not compensated.

Baazigar went on to become a blockbuster. Shah Rukh went on to do a string of grey characters in films such as Darr and Anjaam. Speaking with the famous entertainment news in 2017, he revealed the reason he signed these films was because other actors were turning down these roles.

“The reasons I agreed to do roles which the other guys were saying no to (for whatever their mindset was), a Darr or a Baazigar, was because I thought I’m not good-looking enough to be a hero, so let me just get a villain’s job. I didn’t do it because I was gutsy or because I knew I could pull it off, I’m such a great actor,” he said at the time.

It happened that SRK and Deepak worked on the 1994 film Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. In addition, Deepak appeared in films including the well-known Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Aashiqui, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, Sadak, and Khiladi. With films like Tom, Dick, and Harry, Fareb, and Khamoshh... Khauff Ki Raat, he moved into directing. He'll be now seen in Tipppsy.
