27 Years Of Army: Unforgettable On-Screen Collision Of SRK and Sridevi; 'THIS' Is How Sharukh Covered Age Difference! (Details Inside)

In the world of Indian movies, late actress Sridevi was a famous actress who worked with many famous stars over the course of a long and successful career. But she did share a small amount of screen time with a few well-known actors. Shah Rukh Khan was one of these actors, and she worked with him on the movie 'Army.' This action-packed movie, which came out in 1996, was the only time they ever worked together on-screen.

'Army' was a remake of the famous film 'Sholay,' which was directed by Ramesh Sippy. It was directed by Ram Sethi, who was known for his work as an action director. But it had a unique twist in that one of the main characters was a man instead of a woman. Sridevi played Gabbar Singh, which was originally played by Amjad Khan. Shah Rukh Khan was her husband, whose character dies tragically at the hands of the bad guy, Danny Denzongpa.

There was a change in age between Shah Rukh Khan and Sridevi, which was interesting. Shah Rukh Khan looked a little bit younger than Sridevi. But Shah Rukh Khan was determined to work with the famous actress, so he found a way to do it. He grew a moustache for the first time in his career so he could play Sridevi's on-screen husband better.

The talented group of 'Army' also included Sudesh Berry, Mohnish Bahl, Ravi Kishan, Ronit Roy, Harish Kumar, Aashif Sheikh, Ashok Saraf, Kiran Kumar, and Tinu Anand, in addition to Shah Rukh Khan and Sridevi. Even though people were excited about Shah Rukh Khan and Sridevi working together, 'Army' did not do well at the box office.

It's important to remember that Sridevi's work with other top stars also had its ups and downs. She worked with Salman Khan in films like 'Chand Ka Tukda' and 'Chandramukhi,' but neither movie did well at the box office and was called a failure. On the other hand, Aamir Khan, who was also a well-known actress at the time, wanted to work with Sridevi, but their plans never came to fruition.
