Throwback: Not SRK, but his body double was riding horse in Baazigar’s title track

Shah Rukh Khan has given us some of the most memorable characters and films in the past. But his portrayal of a negative man in Abbas Mustan’s Baazigar was not only his career-defining film but also one such role that is still remembered.

Do you remember the title track where we can see SRK riding a horse with his face covered with a mask? Well, what if we tell you that it wasn’t him? Yes, you heard that right. In a recent interview, director duo Abbas-Mustan revealed that it was actually his body double who shot for the sequence.

Abbas-Mustan recalls the shoot of the Baazigar title track with Shah Rukh Khan

Abbas-Mustan was recently a part of a fan interaction hosted by Radio Nasha. During the candid conversation, the director duo was asked if Shah Rukh Khan fell off a horse during the song’s shoot. It was then that they revealed that it was his body double with whom they shot the portions where he could be seen riding the horse since the actor’s face was hardly visible. “He was wearing a robe, a hat, and a mask on his face and his eyes were covered. The horse riding was done by the horse owner, a body double,” revealed Mustan.

Further, Mustan revealed yet another interesting fact. Praising his acting skills, he said that when the song ends and he turns away and goes away from the camera, SRK is going down a slope and there is no horse in that scene. But the Swades actor acted as if he was riding a horse and no one can believe that he is not sitting on a horse in that scene.


One of the fans even suggested the filmmakers make a sequel to Baazigar, which could have both Khiladi and Baadshah coming together since both of these films were made by Abbas-Mustan. To this end, Mustan said that it is the era of sequels and asked the fans if they have a story, they should come ahead and give it, and they will make it for sure.

Shah Rukh Khan’s work front

On the professional front, SRK will soon start working on his highly-awaited film, King, alongside his daughter Suhana Khan. Earlier this year, in April, Pinkvilla exclusively informed you that King Khan would play the part of ‘Don’ and that his character would have some gray shades too.
