Ready to be your Mandakini, Shah Rukh Khan tells Farah
New Delhi: Picture King Khan clad in white, drenched under a waterfall! Shah Rukh Khan is ready to do the infamous Mandakini act, but only for his filmmaker friend Farah Khan.
The superstar made the confession on Zee TV`s ‘DID Super Moms’ while promoting his film ‘Chennai Express’.
On the show, he was blown away by flexibility and talent of contestants Cecille and Shivangi, who performed a Mallakhamb act which had those executing backward flips on a five-foot wide wooden block.
On hearing Shah Rukh`s comments for the contestants, the show`s judge Farah, who had choreographed "Jiya jale" for the movie ‘Dil Se...’ reminisced how she had tried to get Shah Rukh to do a few Mallakhamb steps for the song.
"On the shoot day, Shah Rukh vanished from the sets and was nowhere to be seen. I had specially ordered a white lungi and wanted him to be bare chested while shooting the song," she recalled.
To that Shah Rukh came up with a quick rejoinder.
"Don`t worry Farah, for your next movie, I promise I will do a Mallakhamb. If you dress me in white for it, I will also be your Mandakini and give you four days to shoot the song as well," said the superstar with a naughty grin.
Mandakini, a former Bollywood actress, had caused a stir with her daring act of bathing under a waterfall, wearing a flimsy white sari in 1985 film ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’.
