Manisha Koirala and Shah Rukh Khan may not exactly have set the box office on fire whenever they have been paired on screen. But they have been a very good-looking jodi onscreen. They have worked together in two movies - Dil Se..., which everyone now claims to be an overlooked classic, and Guddu, that people are quite right to overlook. Speaking of Dil Se..., Manisha Koirala's fan club recently shared an old newspaper clipping of the actress, along with Shah Rukh Khan while they were shooting for the movie at Rajpath, New Delhi. 20 Years of Dil Se: Not Shah Rukh Khan or Mani Ratnam, The Real Hero of the Film is AR Rahman.
The picture had Shah Rukh Khan guiding Manisha and asking the people ahead to pave the way. Commenting on that picture, Manisha Koirala said that Shah Rukh Khan has always been protective and she thanked him for being so. She tweeted, "He is always protective 🙏🏻 @iamsrk thank you shaa". Awww! Well, we are sure many other actresses in the industry, who have worked with Shah Rukh Khan, would agree with Manisha on this.

Even though they may not be working together, SRK and Manisha continue to be good friends, with King Khan recently attending her birthday bash. Manisha Koirala Birthday Party Inside Pics: Shah Rukh Khan, Rekha, Manisha Malhotra and Other Celebs Grace the Star-Studded Bash.
Speaking more about Dil Se..., it marked the debut of director Mani Ratnam in Bollywood, who was known for his classic Tamil movies then like Roja and Bombay. The movie was also Preity Zinta's acting debut and its songs, composed by AR Rahman, are still a rage to this day, even though the movie came out 20 years back, like Chaiyya Chaiyya, Satrangri Re, Jiya Jale and the title track!
