Songs in the musical drama were also massive hits, including Le Gayi, which featured Karisma and Shah Rukh and featured an elaborate choreography with several background dancers. The dancer was a student of Shiamak Davar’s dance academy, and one of them was Shahid Kapoor, who made his Bollywood debut six years later. While it is common knowledge that Shahid was the background dancer in the song, he once revealed that he inspired Karisma to give 15 takes in a scene.
In the film, Le Gayi had to be performed by a dance troupe, which is why it was important that Karishma and all the background dancers perform together. However, Shahid had other hair plans, and left him embarrassed in front of Karisma. She told Filmfare, “There was a guy who was a little offbeat. I swear, he has big hair on his head, that’s me. I remember I wouldn’t call him Karisma because at the time she was Karisma Kapoor, making her 15.” The retake was because of me.”
Shahid further recalled, “And, once he turned back and said ‘Who is this? Who is this? (Who is this)’ and, I was hiding myself and saying ‘I am not, I am not’ (This is not me) .’ I had just joined Shiamak Davar and my hair used to freeze half a beat once I got home. So, it wasn’t really my fault. It was just the length of my hair.”
Karishma was last seen in the 2020 ZEE5 series Mentalhood, which also marked her OTT debut. She is currently filming for Brown – a suspense thriller by Abhinay Dev, which is based on the book City of Death by Abheek Baruah. Karishma, who will reportedly play a detective, will make her comeback in a full-fledged role in the film. His last film which featured him in the lead role was the 2012 film Dangerous Ishq.
