Farah Khan, renowned for her collaborations with Shah Rukh Khan on films like “Main Hoon Na” and “Om Shanti Om,” recently shared intriguing details about Shah Rukh Khan’s unwavering dedication during the shoot of the song “Dard-E-Disco” in “Om Shanti Om.” According to Farah, Shah Rukh Khan refrained from drinking water for two days to avoid bloating while shooting a shirtless scene for the song.

She mentioned that during the filming of “Dard-E-Disco,” Shah Rukh Khan, true to his promise, didn’t consume water for two days, as he believed it could lead to bloating, hindering the desired physique for the shirtless shot.

Additionally, Farah Khan recalled Shah Rukh Khan’s dedication during the recent shoot of the song “Chaleya” for the film “Jawan,” even after 32 years in the industry. Despite his extensive experience, Shah Rukh Khan insisted on rehearsing, believing it would enhance his dance performance.

Are you crazy?’ He said, ‘No, I am thinking that if I rehearse, I will be able to dance better.'”
Shah Rukh Khan is currently preparing for the release of his upcoming film “Dunki,” directed by Rajkumar Hirani, scheduled for an international release on December 21.
