Surprised? Well, that is what filmmaker Rakesh Roshan had confessed in an interview that dates back to 2015. For the unversed, Rakesh and Shah Rukh Khan have worked together in three films- King Uncle, Karan Arjun, Koyla. Interestingly, all their collaborations have been superhit. However, post the release of Koyla in 1997, Rakesh never collaborated with SRK again. In an interview with Rediff, Rakesh confessed that he stopped working with the superstar Khan because of his own son Hrithik Roshan. Here's what he had said...
Why Rakesh Roshan Did Not Work With SRK?
"After Koyla, I did not cast Shah Rukh Khan in any film because Hrithik Roshan had come into films by then (laughs), so I made Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai with him. Had Hrithik Roshan not been in films, I would have kept making films with Shah Rukh," said Roshan.

When asked which film of Shah Rukh Khan he likes the most, senior Roshan said, "Most of Shah Rukh Khan films are good but my personal favourite is Darr.
