While Milap Zaveri insists that scenes in Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai which plays up Farah-SRK feud were shot over a year ago - when the two were still friends, an insider insists the sequence was a recent addition.
Milap Zaveri's Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai starring Riteish Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandez is a case of reel life imitating real life.
An insider who has seen the film says, "Milap and Farah Khan have made full use of the Shahrukh Khan-Farah cold war. In JKSAH Farah stops working with SRK and opts for the macho action star Desh (played by Ruslaan)." Just like she has opted for Akshay Kumar in Tees Maar Khan, instead of her usual favourite, Shahrukh Khan.
The source adds, "Ruslaan plays an action star (like Akshay Kumar) and in one scene Farah explains to the media why she loves working with this big star and how much she loves his stunts. But when the media asks her why she stopped working with SRK who had given her two hits in Main Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om, Farah gets emotional, starts crying and walks out with OSO music playing in the background."
In yet another scene, Desh is seen torturing her with his attitude. And Farah tells Riteish's character how she really misses Shahrukh because he was so easy to work with. She says, 'Shahrukh ki badi yaad aa rahi hai¦ He was so supportive of what I did.'
And the last scene on SRK has Farah talking on the phone. "The person on the other side is Shahrukh Khan going by the conversation Farah is having with him. At one point Farah says, "Shahrukh, stop crying. I will do your next film!"
Director Milap Zaveri says defensively, "We shot over a year ago when none of these fights or controversies had happened so there's no question of reel life imitating real. Farah plays herself and when she's making a film with Desh the media asks her why she's dropped SRK. And she replies, 'Because Shahrukh is my friend and family and no more questions please.' It wasn't Farah's idea to incorporate these scenes but just a random thought. It was my idea and just a coincidence that what we shot in reel turned out to have happened in real life."
But the source insists, "These scenes were all recently incorporated after the SRK-Farah split. Farah looks different in a couple of scenes. Also, if she was still as friendly with Shahrukh then, she would never had shot those scenes at all!"
