Farah Khan, known for directing Shah Rukh Khan in films like Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om, and Happy New Year, shared that during the shooting of the song Dard-E-Disco in Om Shanti Om, Shah Rukh Khan refrained from drinking water for two days.
During a recent chat with Bharti Singh and Harsh Lambachiya on their podcast, Farah Khan recalled that for Main Hoon Na, she desired a shot of Shah Rukh Khan without a shirt, but he couldn’t focus on his physique due to a back injury, which eventually required surgery. She added, “So during Om Shanti Om, he said I promised you that the first time I remove my shirt (on camera), I’ll do it for you. He didn’t have water for two days because it causes bloating.”
She further mentioned that in the song Dard-e-Disco, Shah Rukh Khan couldn’t dance properly due to severe cramping.
