Guwahati: Sushant Singh Rajput nailed the shoot of his final song, the title track of Dil Bechara, in a single take. The song was choreographed by Farah Khan and the two rehearsed for just one day, before the shoot.
Dil Bechara director Mukesh Chhabra revealed that it was the ‘last song that Sushant ever shot for’. He said, “Farah Khan choreographed it and she rehearsed the song with Sushant for a day and then shot the whole song in one shot. That’s it. Just one shot. The song picturisation is deceptively simple and Sushant who was a very good dancer, made it look effortless.”
Choreographed by Farah Khan, the song features Sushant and in an interview, Farah also opened up on her experience of shooting with the late actor.
Revealing that the song is extremely special for her, Farah said that Dil Bechara title track is her first ever collaboration with Sushant. She mentioned that they were friends for a long time, however, this song was the first time they worked together. She also shared that she wanted to shoot the song in one go as she had confidence in Sushant’s dancing skills. Farah said, “ I wanted the song to be done as a one shot song because I knew Sushant would be able to do it perfectly.”
Further, talking about shooting with Sushant, Farah said that the late actor and she rehearsed for half-day and then shot the song in one go.
She was all praises for Sushant’s dance and remembered the time when she was judging a reality show and Sushant was a guest. She said, “I remembered Sushant had once come to a reality dance show as a guest celebrity, which I was judging. That was the only time a celebrity guest had danced better than the contestants on that show.” Sharing the reward she gave Sushant for nailing the song in one go, Farah said, “As a reward for nailing it perfectly, all Sushant wanted was food from my house. I got home-cooked food for him.” She further mentioned that she will remember how happy and alive he looked in the song.
Sushant died on June 14. Dil Bechara, his final film, will release posthumously on Disney+ Hotstar on July 24. The film marks the debut of Sanjana Sanghi in a leading role.
