It's been 20 years since Aditya Chopra's second directorial Mohabbatein released. The film starred Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan in the lead roles. Whereas Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was seen as Big B's daughter and SRK's lost love. Now Farah Khan Kunder who was the choreographer of the film recalled shooting for the songs and revealed that they did not know Aishwarya was Shah Rukh's figment of the imagination.
Farah stated, "We were not supposed to know, at that point, whether Aishwarya was Shah Rukh’s imagination or not. He would see her in places and she was the spirit behind the love stories. We shot in London. We shot in freezing cold nights with rain and we went to Switzerland to shoot two songs, 'Humko Humise Chura Lo', which I think is one of the best songs in the film, really beautifully done."
Mohabbatein saw Shah Rukh and Aishwarya reunite as lovers the same year they played siblings in Josh. Farah further shared about Aditya's vision for the songs. She said, "It helped that Adi was very, very, very clear on what he wanted in every song. Every song had a screenplay. It was composed like that, with act one, act two, act three. He knew what would happen at the beginning of the song and the middle and at the end."
On choreographing the new actors, Farah went on to say, "With Shah Rukh, I had done tons of movies by then. So, all these kids (Uday Chopra, Shamita Shetty, Jimmy Shergill, Preeti Jhangiani, Kim Sharma and Jugal Hansraj) would do two to three months of rehearsals. And then, Shah Rukh would come and he would learn it in like five minutes because he never comes for rehearsals and he would just learn the steps in five minutes, and that was the amazing part of it!"
