Adarsh Gourav recalls Sidharth Malhotra pulling a prank on Shah Rukh Khan’s My Name is Khan sets: ‘Family thought it’d be last time I’d be on set’ | Bollywood News


Actor Adarsh Gourav was just 14 years old when he was playing the part of young Shah Rukh Khan in filmmaker Karan Johar’s 2010 release My Name is Khan. The actor’s family believed it was probably the first and the last time he would get to be on a movie set, as a result of which Gourav says his days on the romantic drama were nothing short of a carnival– which included an unforgettable prank.

In My Name is Khan, Adarsh Gourav featured as young Rizwan Khan and had scenes mostly with actor Zarina Wahab. While it was Gourav’s debut film–at age 14–My Name is Khan was also a project in which actor Sidharth Malhotra was an assistant director.

When asked about his learnings from the set, Gourav told Indianexpress.com, “It is to not trust Sidharth Malhotra when he says you have to swim across the floor!” The actor pointed out the sequence in which he had to pump out the water using a cycle.

“Sidharth convinced me that I had to swim in that water and reach the other side! I didn’t know how to swim, so as a 14 year old I was so stressed out! I thought how am I going to do it, I have been cast in the film, should I tell them I don’t know how to swim. The scene wasn’t even about that– it was about riding a cycle,” he laughed.

The actor, who went on to find global acclaim with his performance in The White Tiger, said the Karan Johar set was “beautiful” to be a part of. “I remember meeting Karan sir and then my family met him. It was such a festival for my family. I shot for three days and everyday I had a different family member coming on set!

“They thought this is probably the last time I am going to be on a set! So jitna fayda utha sakte ho abhi utha lo. So, one day my parents and grandfather would be there, the next day my brother, then their friends also joined, visited the set and even ate set food! Just so many memories to go back and share.”
