If you ask what is common in Manmohan Desai's Naseeb and Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om then the answer would be a song that stars all big personalities of Bollywood.
Farah Khan just finished shooting the title track of her forthcoming film Om Shanti Om. The song has been shot at Film City for over seven days. The situation is that superstar Om Kapoor played by Shah Rukh Khan has won an award and throws a party which is attended by all actors. Farah and Shah Rukh personally invited all the big actors of Bollywood and managed to shoot the song with 29 stars. This is the last song of the film. Om Shanti Om is based on the film industry and spans over two eras.
This will be the first time that Saif Ali Khan, Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt will be seen together on screen. Interestingly, Dharmendra arrived after these three finished their shoot, however when they saw Dharmji shoot, the three actors jumped into the frame and started dancing with Dharmji. Jeetendra shook a leg with his son Tusshar for the song. Mithun specially flew down to Mumbai from Hyderabad only to shoot for this song. This song will probably also mark the comeback of Karisma Kapoor to the big screen. She shot for her dance sequence after Tabu and Urmila. Sunil Shetty, who was the villain in Farah's last film Main Hoon Na was slightly apprehensive as he was to dance after Govinda's performance.
The list continues with Bobby Deol, Zayed Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Dino Morea, Ritiesh Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani. The female brigade was represented by Rekha, Shabana Azmi, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Kajol, Priyanka Chopra, Shilpa Shetty, Lara Dutta, Vidya Balan, Juhi Chawla, Malaika Arora and Amrita Arora.
All the stars who shot for the song thanked by Farah and Shah Rukh in their own special way. They were all gifted a Tag Heuer watch, Nokia phone, Gold coin with Om inscribed on it and a personalised T-shirt with "OSO - You Made It Big" printed on it .
With so many big Bollywood stars coming together for one song, Om Shanti Om definitely has another USP attached to it apart from the star power of Shah Rukh Khan. It now has the entire Bollywood in the film.
