“Previous to Mohabbatein, I had executed precisely one tune in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge which was Ruk Ja O Dil Deewane. It had grow to be an enormous hit. Then, I did Dil To Pagal Hai for YRF. Yash ji was directing. I received to do the love tune Dholna and the temper tune Bholi Si Surat. So, I used to be extraordinarily thrilled when Adi informed me that I used to be doing the entire of Mohabbatein, which was Adi’s second movie after Dilwale, so it was an enormous deal!” Farah reminisces. Mohabbatein marks the blockbuster on-screen jodi of SRK and Aishwarya and so they had been coming collectively as a romantic pair after they performed siblings in Josh!
“It helped that Adi was very, very, very clear on what he needed in each tune. Each tune had a screenplay. It was composed like that, with act one, act two, act three. He knew what would occur at first of the tune and the center and on the finish,” says Farah, who’s now a supremely profitable film-maker.

He would see her in locations and he or she was the spirit behind the love tales. We shot in London. We shot in freezing chilly nights with rain and we went to Switzerland to shoot two songs, Humko Humise Chura Lo, which I feel is without doubt one of the finest songs within the movie, actually fantastically executed,” she says.
Farah reveals how the legendary film-maker Yash Chopra was aiding his son in Mohabbatein. “I do know Yashji was there on all of the songs, aiding Adi. Very sweetly he could be holding the fog machine and type of put the fog at precisely the time it was wanted. I’ve by no means seen somebody bodily do it, I do know that was one time I couldn’t yell on the fog machine individual as a result of Yashji was doing it, and he was doing a somewhat good job with it. So, it’s one in all my cherished reminiscences and experiences engaged on Mohabbatein,” she reveals.
Farah fondly cherishes her artistic affiliation with Aditya Chopra. She says, “Adi in fact, as I feel everybody is aware of, could be very, very organized. He used to make me really feel responsible and I used to assume I’m one of the vital hardworking individuals there. In reality, even throughout lunchbreak, we might all be having lunch and Adi could be strolling round occupied with how the following shot goes to be. I’ve by no means seen him take a lunchbreak.”
Farah reveals how SRK was a professional to choose up her choreography with utmost ease. “With Shahrukh I had executed tons of films by then. So, all these youngsters (Uday Chopra, Shamita Shetty, Jimmy Shergill, Preeti Jhangiani, Kim Sharma and Jugal Hansraj) would do two to a few months of rehearsals. After which, Shah Rukh would come and he would be taught it in like 5 minutes as a result of he by no means comes for rehearsals and he would simply be taught the steps in 5 minutes, and that was the superb a part of it!”
About Aishwarya, Farah says, “Ash being a radical skilled, freezing in London, carrying a white lace saree, drenched, and he or she wouldn’t complain. Her and Shah Rukh’s chemistry is one thing else within the movie and that complete poetry of Ek Ladki Thi Anjani Si I feel that has grow to be nearly iconic due to how they did it.”
