In an interview, Khan recalls the time when she choreographed SRK and Kajol in Baazigar (1993) title track Baazigar O Baazigar. She says, “We were shooting Baazigar in Mauritius. He (SRK) takes the name of land and sky, there’s a back shot and he opens his arms. Then he turns and reveals name on his chest by opening his shirt. I gave him this action there.”
