New Delhi. The pair of Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor was very much liked in the film ‘Biwi Number One’ released in the year 1999. During this, the pairing of Karishma Kapoor and Govinda was also very much liked. Earlier, Govinda was going to be seen in place of Salman Khan in the film, but something happened that the film went to Salman. Along with this, Sushmita Sen’s star also started shining only after this film.

If we talk about the story of the film, Karishma Kapoor was seen in the role of an ideal wife in the film ‘Biwi No. 1’, while Salman was in the role of Karishma’s husband. His character was named Prem only, which has been kept in many of his films. At the same time, Sushmita Sen played the character of a modern girl named Rupali who becomes Salman’s girlfriend in the film. Sushmita’s character in the film was a character with a gray shade. Which ruins the married life of Salman and Karisma. Before this film, Sushmita had been a part of many flop films. But after this film, his acting car got a track.

Sunny Deol’s anger erupted over the box office clash of ‘OMG 2’ and ‘Gadar 2’, said- ‘Who has no equal, his…

The film proved to be a milestone for Sushmita.
For Sushmita Sen’s career, this film proved to be no less than a sanjeevani booti. After becoming Miss Universe, all four of her films Dastak, Zor, Sirf Tum and Hindustan Ki Kasam had almost proved to be flops. Vashu Bhagnani gave Sushmita the biggest break of her career. In the film, Sushmita plays Salman’s girlfriend, who appeared as a woman who broke Salman and Karishma’s house. It was only after this film that Sushmita started getting many good offers. His character was also well liked in this film.

Sushmita’s hero would have been Govinda, not Salman
In that period, director David Dhawan was often especially recognized for number series films. Many of his films like Hero No. 1, Coolie No. 1 were given hits with Govinda. The command of the direction of Biwi No. 1 was also in his hands. Earlier, Govinda was also approached for this film, but it is said that Govinda’s tuning with Sushmita in the film was not very solid and he rejected the film. Later the film was offered to Salman. But taking Salman also proved to be the right decision of the makers. This film proved to be a big hit of that year.

Please tell that the pairing of Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor was also well liked in the film. Along with this, people liked the chemistry of Salman and Sushmita in the film. The unique concept of the film had won the hearts of the people.
