Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan took a risk by playing a villain in ‘Baazigar’ 20 years ago, and he is still reaping rich dividends for that. The superstar Tuesday thanked its makers and his co-actors.

The film was released Nov 12, 1993.

"20 years of `Baazigar`. Thanks Abbas-Mustan, Kajol, Shilpa (Shetty) and Rakhiji (Rakhi Gulzar)," Shah Rukh posted on his Twitter page, and also quoted the famous dialogue from the film saying: "Abhi bhi haarkar jeetne wale ko Baazigar kehte hain (Even today, the person who wins the losing battle is called a `Baazigar`)."

‘Baazigar’ is one of the few films starring Shah Rukh in a negative role. Other such films include ‘Anjaam’ and ‘Darr’.

Shah Rukh is currently busy working in Farah Khan`s ‘Happy New Year’ which also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani.
