The song in the now blockbuster hit Om Shanti Om, featuring 31 of the biggest stars from tinsel town, was the biggest attraction that was pulled off due to the efforts of director Farah Khan and producer Shah Rukh who roped in all of them at such short notice.
But what made the most popular song from Om Shanti Om still pretty much incomplete was the absence of some celebrities who could not be a part of it due to prior work commitments or other unavoidable issues.
Like Amitabh Bachchan for instance who, if not for Abhishek's impending marriage, would surely have been a part of the entire song sequence along with son Abhishek Bachchan.
Aamir Khan too was conspicuous by his absence.
Director Farah clarifies, "I had approached Aamir but he was too busy shooting his film Ghajini and wasn't able to be a part of my film. I wish I could bring Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman dancing together in my film."
There were others too who missed out.
Among them were Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu who were the only senior actors who could not make it for the song though Shah Rukh and Farah wished for it desperately.
Shah Rukh, who was initially tagged of having a strong Dilip Kumar hangover, has always looked up to the senior Devdas as his idol.
Shah Rukh says, "Now I feel I will have to make a sequel to Om Shanti Om and request all the celebrities who missed out from the original song to shoot a song with me in the sequel."
We would eagerly wait for OSO 2, Shah Rukh!
