THIS is why Farah Khan choreographed ‘Dil Bechara’ title track for free
"I am doing it for you and Sushant", said Farah to Dil Bechara director Mukesh Chhabra.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film ‘Dil Bechara‘ is making a massive buzz on the internet. The trailer has received huge praise and love from the audience who will bid their favorite actor one last goodbye. The title track of Dil Bechara released on Friday and needless to say, it’s bound to make anyone teary-eyed. The magnificent Sushant all happy and smiling with AR Rahman’s soulful music and Farah Khan’s choreography, the movie screams perfection. The title track of the film has been trending on Twitter since its release. But did you know Farah Khan who choreographed the song in one take did not take any fee? Yes, that’s right.
Director Mukesh Chabbra took to Instagram on Friday to share the title track of his directorial debut ‘Dil Bechara‘. In his caption, he revealed why an experienced and sought after choreographer like Farah Khan readily agreed to be part of the film and refused to charge any fee. In one heartwarming
conversation Mukesh recalls asking Farah for her fee, she chided him saying, “Tu Pagal hai kya Mukesh? It’s your first film. It’ll be a blessing from me, tu bhai hai mera, shut up and tell your producers that I am doing it for you and Sushant,” these were the words of Farah Khan, who loved the song, which has been composed and sung by AR Rahman.” Reacting to his post, Farah Khan commented, “Yeh Kehna zaroori tha? Love you .”

Meanwhile, Farah Khan who choreographed Sushant for his last song in Dil Bechara, shared an emotional note on her Instagram explaining why this song is so special to her. “This song is particularly close to me because it was the first time I was choreographing Sushant… We were friends for a long time but never worked together. I had also promised Mukesh Chhabra that when he makes his directorial debut I would do a song for him. I wanted the song to be done as a 1 shot song because I knew Sushant would be able to do it perfectly.” Sushant Singh Rajput began his career as a backup dancer and had previously participated in dance reality shows. The actor is also the winner of the dance show Jhalak Dikh La Ja season 4.
Farah further wrote Sushant had only request from her and that was to bring a home-cooked meal.
“We rehearsed a whole day and then finished the shoot in half a day. As a reward for nailing it perfectly all Sushant wanted to be 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. Yes, this song is very special to me,” Farah Khan wrote.
