Unit members of Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om were surprised to see a particular guest on their sets a few days ago.
Says an eyewitness present on location, "Abhishek was shooting for an ad film for Motorola in Film City, very close to where OSO was being shot, so he dropped by to meet SRK and Farah.
They exchanged pleasantries and chatted for about 15 minutes before Abhishek left."
The source adds that the vibes between the trio were warm and cordial. "It was a spontaneous decision by Abhishek to drop by Farah's sets.
Whenever Shah Rukh and the Bachchans have met at social events, they have been cordial with each other. In fact, Farah and SRK are very fond of Abhishek and were keen that he do a cameo in their film.
When Abhi came to the sets, Farah asked him to play a walk-on part and he has agreed. Karan Johar, Subhash Ghai and Rishi Kapoor are some of the other people who are doing cameos in the film."
Farah, who is down with a cold and a throat infection, was unavailable for comment. But a source close to Shah Rukh confirms, "Yes, it's true Abhishek dropped in to meet Farah and SRK. Later, SRK and Farah also dropped by Abhishek's set after wrapping up shooting for the day."
Produced by Shah Rukh's Red Chillies Entertainment, Om Shanti Om stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Rampal, Shreyas Talpade and Kirron Kher.
