‘Baazigar’ reunion: When Shilpa Shetty bumped into Shahrukh Khan
Bollywood actress-turned-entrepreneur Shilpa Shetty bumped into her first co-star Shah Rukh Khan over two decades later after their hit movie ‘Baazigar’. The 41-year-old actress was shooting for a commercial, while the ‘Fan’ actor was filming nearby on Monday when the former co-stars came across each other.
It was a nostalgic moment for both the stars and the ‘Dhadadkan’ actress captured the moment with King Khan in a picture and shared it on her Instagram page. “And guess who was shooting next door, my “Baazigar” forever @iamsrk u are Charming personified always So lovely seeing u #hero #nostalgic #memories #firsthero,” she captioned the image.
‘Baazigar’ which released in 1993 was Shilpa’s debut film and she also earned a Filmfare nomination for Best Supporting Actress and Lux New Face of the Year awards. Shah Rukh and Shilpa never got to work together again, except in ‘Om Shanti Om’ in which Shilpa had a special appearance in a song sequence.
On the work front, Shilpa will be returning on the small screen with a kids dance reality show ‘Super Dancer’ where she will be a judge, along with choreographer Geeta Kapur and filmmaker Anurag Basu.
Shah Rukh on the other hand has wrapped up his crime thriller ‘Raees’ which is now scheduled for a release on January 26. He will also be seen with Alia Bhatt in Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi’.
