It just keeps getting bigger and better as far as Om Shanti Om is concerned. The movie that has created waves with the Deewangi song that featured as many as 31 stars in it is set to release on November 9th this year. And jst as the release date is approaching Farah Khan gives her audience another surprise. Om Shanti Om will feature Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan as well. So that is surely another feather on the cap of Om Shanti Om.
Talking about her film Om Shanti Om and the song Deewangi Farah says, “It was Shah Rukh’s and my dream to have all the big actors together in our film. I invited, rather approached around 34 stars but managed to get only 31, which I think, was more than what I expected.
So why did Amitabh not take part in the Deewangi song? Does it have anything to do Farah surprises us with, “Amitabh is in Om Shanti Om . In fact even Abhishek is a part of our film. How can I not have them? People are speculating about this because Amit ji is not part of the song. But it’s not true. Both father and son have a special appearance in my film. They come in a scene just before the song. I wanted Abhishek to be part of the song, but when I shot the song, he was busy with his marriage preparations.”

Ironically , Shah Rukh and Farah Khan were inspired by a song from Amitabh’s hit movie Naseeb – John, Johnny, Janardan which itself had as many as 10 of Bollywood’s super stars. Surely Shah Rukh and Farah Khan have managed to top that figure. Shah Rukh, we hear, desperately wanted Amitabh and his family to be part of the song. It is also believed that Shah Rukh’s wife Gauri Khan and friends like Karan Johar and Rohan Sippy tried hard to convince the Bachchans, but finally it was Farah who managed to convince them.
So is Aamir Khan too there in Om Shanti Om? Farah Khan confirms, “No, Aamir is not in the song. I had approached him but he was too busy shooting his film Ghajini and wasn’t able to be a part of my film. I wish I could bring Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman dancing together in my film. And before you go on to the next speculation, let me tell you that Akshay Kumar is a part of the movie as well.”
Now that’s something to cheer for. So book your tickets fast for Om Shanti Om . As of now as far as promoting the film goes, Farah seems to have beaten Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Let’s see if Om Shanti Om manages to beat Saawariya on 9th November.
