SRK, Salman, Saif and Sanjay Dutt in Om Shanti Om song
It’s going to be one hell of a treat for the audiences and it can indeed be considered a feat of sorts as some of the biggest names in bollywood are all set to gyrate together in the title song for the film Om Shanti Om. This Farah Khan production stars Shahrukh and newcomer model Deepika Padukone. Apart from King Khan SRK in the song, it will also feature Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Sanjay Dutt amongst others. According to rumours the film is said to be based on the classic musical Karz.
Choreographer turned director Farah Khan has been inspired to do this song with many high profile stars from Manmohan Desai’s song Naseeb in the 80’s. Desai’s title song Naseeb in the 80’s too had pulled a coup of sorts when they roped in some of the best actors of their time to shake a leg in the song. Amitabh, Shatrughan Sinha, Hema Malini, Rishi Kapoor, Reena Roy, Dharmendra, Rajesh Khanna, Pran, Amjad Khan etc were all part of this glamorous song that created waves at the time. And now once more in 2007, Farah Khan seems set to pull off a similar feat with stars featuring from the 70’s till date in her song. Also seen gyrating in the song will be Govinda, Mithun Chakraborty, Rekha, Kajol, Karisma Kapur, Shilpa Shetty, Tabu, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Malaika Arora, Preity Zinta, Rani Mukherjee, Urmila Matondkar, Vidya Balan, Shabana Azmi, Amrita Arora etc. Whew…….the list definitely seems impressive!
The song will feature as part of the film where a party takes place, so the song fits in perfectly and does not look forced into the narrative. Farah says “The best thing is that since Shahrukh is acting in Om Shanti Om, it made sense to have so many stars in one song, which happens at a party, hence the song does not look forced.” Moreover Farah Khan is extremely loved and admired by a lot of people in the film industry, she has also worked with some of the top actors in the film industry and hence she probably convinced some of these stars to shake a leg in the song. Also with top star Shahrukh being friends with most in the film industry, it makes things much easier. However with so many superstars in the song one wonders how much scope each of them will get to show their dancing skills. Well only time will tell, till then their excited fans will just have to wait?
