Shah Rukh Khan became the trendsetter in flaunting abs on screen after going shirtless in Dard-e-Disco from the film Om Shanti Om, which was choreographed by Farah Khan. Of course, the famous Bollywood choreographer enjoys a wonderful professional relationship with the superstar.

In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Farah Khan revealed her best memories on the sets of 1998 movie Dil Se. The film, choreographed by Khan, had in the lead SRK, Manisha Koirala, and Preity Zinta.

She revealed why we didn’t see SRK in a scene from the song “Jiya Jale” – particularly the sequence where we see Preity Zinta under a waterfall.

“When we were shooting in Kerala for Jiya Jale, I told Shah Rukh that we are doing a sequence at the waterfall and I am going to make you wear a white dhoti and make you come out of the water,” said Khan.

“Of course, I was joking with him; but that’s the first time in 25 years that he didn’t land up for a shoot. He said he lost his way and there were no Google maps then. We were in a forest in Kerala,” she revealed.

Khan added, “If you go back and see the song, Preity Zinta is alone with the dancers in the waterfall portion because Shah Rukh did not turn up.”

Dil Se was Preity Zinta’s debut film. Recently, Preity Zinta shared a memory from the past from the sets of the film.


On the work front, SRK is busy shooting his upcoming film Zero which also has Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in lead roles. Farah Khan, on the other hand, is busy with a special song for the film Veere Di Wedding starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, and others.
