Om Shanti Om the Farah Khan film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone remains special in memory for many reasons. One big reason being that the particular title song of Om Shanti Om featured as many as 31 celebrities in it. It was a spectacular sight tto watch them all in one dance and song sequence.

She narrated about not being able to convince actors like Dev Anand and Dilip Kumar, Saira Banu. She also stated that Amitabh Bachchan could not come as Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai’s wedding was being planned at that time.

A report on hindustantimes.com talked about Farah’s thoughts on the making of the song and we take reference from that story for our write up here.

As per Farah, “Deewangi Deewangi” was filmed in an ‘organised way’. This meant shooting with five stars everyday with two hours set aside with each. She also pulled SRK’s leg sharing that “woh pehli baar tha jab Shah Rukh subah time pe aata tha (That was the first time SRK would come on time in the morning) because he was the producer, actor and host.”
