Farah reveals spot boy fainted after Pooja Bedi’s skirt flew into air in Pehla Nasha

Aamir Khan’s film Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar is undoubtedly one of the cult films of the 1990s. This film is remembered for everything but one thing that had everyone’s hearts was the song Pehla Nasha from the movie.

This song is popular even now and keeps growing on you. Well, if you have seen the song, then you would know that there is a scene in it when Pooja Bedi’s skirt goes flying while she is on top of a car. Did you know during the scene of this shoot the spot boy had fainted?

Talking to Radio Nasha and recalling the shoot of this iconic song, choreographer Farah Khan revealed that the song was initially being choreographed by Saroj Khan in Ooty. But for some reason, she had to go back to Bombay. The Om Shanti Om director revealed that she had choreographed a few shows until then, so the Aamir Khan starrer’s director called her to take over.

Farah admitted that she re-did the entire song’s concept and introduced slow-motion in it. It was her idea to present Pooja Bedi in a Marilyn Monroe avatar. The choreographer said that she had informed Pooja to hold her skirt down when the fan would be turned on. “In the first shot, there was a spot boy holding the fan and when the fan was switched on, Pooja didn’t hold her skirt down and the spot boy fainted and that is the first time I saw what a thong looked like. Pooja was bindass, she didn’t care,” said Farah.
