YRF has shared the making of Pathaan’s Jhoome Jo Pathaan song, in which Shah Rukh Khan admits he was too shy to show his abs in front of the camera.
Pathaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, has already become one of the industry’s biggest blockbusters. The film’s makers have now shared a behind-the-scenes video of the making of Jhoome Jo Pathaan, which stars Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. Both Shah Rukh and Deepika can be seen in the video rehearsing with the background dancers for the steps choreographed by Bosco Martis. Shah Rukh reveals in the video that he was too shy to open his shirt and show his abs in the song.
In the video, Shah Rukh says he felt there was a “conspiracy” to get him to show his abs because he was adamant about not going shirtless. “He is shy to the point where he does not want to open the button of his shirt, and having the body like that you have to like tear it and show that to the world… we had to coax him to do that,” director Siddharth Anand says. In the following scenes, Siddharth Anand says to Shah Rukh, “Meri kasam kha ke bolo gaane mein nahi he…” (Please assure me that this will not be included in the song.) Siddharth also mocks Bosco and claims that Shah Rukh’s body is ready. ‘Pizza,’ says Shah Rukh.
Previously, shortly after the song’s release, choreographer Bosco Martis revealed that the actor was too shy to show his abs. He had posted a photo of himself with Shah Rukh with the caption, “This is without a doubt one of the best pictures I have on my Instagram page. I know you were very shy to click this one, but you were very lucky to get it. Sir, you were also too shy to show off your abs (red heart emoji).. It’s a memory I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you so much to @iamsrk for capturing our moves and posing for this photo. All of this is thanks to @poojadadlani02. I really snuck this one in. I hope we all have a wonderful #pathaan. @deepikapadukone
Pathaan has surpassed Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) and Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar to become the fifth highest-grossing Indian film in history (2017). According to Yash Raj Films, the film has a total worldwide gross of 946 crore.
