Tabu Receives Extravagant Gifts from Shah Rukh Khan for Om Shanti Om Cameo

In a memorable scene from the 2007 blockbuster “Om Shanti Om,” directed by Farah Khan, actress Tabu made a brief yet impactful appearance that left audiences wanting more. The film, a romantic drama interwoven with comedy and fantasy elements, featured Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in lead roles. Tabu’s dazzling cameo in the song “Deewangi Deewangi,” where she donned a stunning red saree and appeared in slow motion, was a highlight for many fans.

Currently promoting her new film “Auron Mein Kahan Dum Tha,” Tabu spoke to Zoom about her experience on the set of “Om Shanti Om” and discussed why she hasn’t yet starred opposite Shah Rukh Khan in a full-fledged film. During the interview, she recalled the lavish treatment she received: “A lot of people want to see us together. It was great fun, they made me some great clothes, great hair and makeup, and we got very expensive gifts from Shah Rukh Khan.”

The actress added, “All of us who did that special appearance in the ‘Om Shanti Om’ song got some very expensive gifts from SRK.” This behind-the-scenes generosity only enhances the magnetic allure of Shah Rukh Khan, known not just for his versatile acting but also for his magnanimous spirit.

“Om Shanti Om” captivated audiences with its story of Om, a 1970s junior film artist who falls in love with a celebrated actress named Shantipriya. Their tragic love story takes a dark twist when Om dies trying to save Shantipriya, only to be reincarnated many years later to avenge their deaths. Deepika Padukone’s portrayal of Shantipriya was widely praised and marked the beginning of her illustrious career. The film received positive reviews from critics and was a gigantic commercial success.

Switching gears from her past to her present, Tabu is eagerly anticipating the release of her next film, “Auron Mein Kahan Dum Tha,” set to hit theaters on July 5, 2024. The film, starring Ajay Devgn, Shantanu Maheshwari, and Saiee Manjrekar, is a unique musical love story. Spanning two decades, from 2002 to 2023, it promises to be an epic romantic drama that will capture hearts.
