Farida said, “Kaun yaqeen karega, woh aaye the aur hamara trolley dhakelrahe the. Hamaare haat se lekar. Shah Rukh Khan. Toh yeh ek bahaut bada badappan hai us ladke mein. Meri bahaut duaayein, pyaar hai unke saath hamesha. Bahaut achi yaadein hai unki.”

Rejecting Kal Ho Naa Ho

Farida Jalal also revealed why she opted out of the film Kal Ho Naa Ho, which featured Shah Rukh Khan. She was offered the role of Jaya Bachchan’s mother-in-law, but she declined. Having recently played roles alongside Jaya Bachchan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Farida felt that the audience wouldn’t accept her in a similar role.

Farida Jalal’s performances have left an indelible mark on Indian cinema. She has received prestigious awards, including the Filmfare Award and the Bengal Film Journalists Award.
