Choreographer And Director Farah Remembers Sushant Singh Rajput’s Last Song, Says He Asked For Home-Cooked Food
Sushant Singh asked for home-cooked food from Farah Khan in exchange for shooting a song in one shot
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput‘s last film ‘Dil Bechara’ will surely make fans grieve more, including unfolding a treasure trove of memories for those who have worked closely with him. Besides, director Mukesh Chhabra and Sushant’s co-star Sanjana Sanghi, who keep on reminiscing the late actor through various social media posts, choreographer and director Farah Khan was also connected with the film. In her recent conversation with Times of India, she took a trip down the memory lane remembering all those times spent with Sushant on the sets of the film and how he nailed the entire song in just one shot.
Farah disclosed that she had composed the dance sequences of Sushant in one of the songs from Dil Bechara and it was the final song the late actor filmed. She also added how Sushant had coaxed her into bringing home-cooked food in exchange for perfecting the entire dance sequence in just one take. Farah stated further that the song was indeed memorable because it was the first and the last time she got to choreograph Sushant. “I wanted the song to be done as a one-shot song because I knew Sushant would be able to do it perfectly because I remembered Sushant had once come to a reality dance show that I was judging as a celebrity guest and that’s the only time the celebrity guest danced better than the contestants on that show. We rehearsed a whole day and then finished shooting in half a day. As a reward for nailing it perfectly, all Sushant wanted was food from my house which I duly got for him. I see the song and all I can see is how alive, how happy he looks in it. And this song is always going to be very special to me,” she reminisced.
Spilling beans on his experience, Chhabra said that he was aware of Sushant being an exceptional dancer and there stood no hindrance for him to shoot the song in one go. He added that Farah was on board unquestionably without charging a penny for the song.
The particular track from Dil Bechara has been composed by AR Rahman. The trailer of the film that was released recently went viral on YouTube and raked in over 50 million views in two days. The film is set to release on Disney+Hotstar on July 24.
