It’s been 19 years since Shah Rukh Khan danced on top of a moving train in ‘Dil Se’ and ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ still gives Khan’s fans a high.
SRK who recently took the promotions of his film ‘Raees’ on a moving train, spoke about the inside story on the making of ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’. He revealed that while shooting for the song, the dancers were tied to the train for protection. However the Baadshah was left loose as the sequence demanded him to jump.
Shah Rukh said, “The dancers were all tied down that’s why it was very difficult. The train was slow, but many times, those overhead bridges use to come and there was no communication like how you have those speakers now. I remember Farah Khan and the rest of the crew carried a white cloth. Every time they put it up it meant stop the song and just bend down. It was very scary. Because even when you lie down it was like you could literally feel the bridge pass over you. That song was shot guerrilla style. The train would stop and suddenly start. It was very difficult to shoot the song. It was fun but not without its difficulties.” Quite a dare-devil!
