Obviously I am not going to post every single Farah-Shahrukh song, that would be impossible. But I will post a selection and you can use your brains to remember any others that you want to suggest.
I love Farah and Shahrukh together. She knows just how to work within his many many dancing limitations. Gives him nice rhythmic shoulder and elbow and knee movements, avoids the hips, and avoids anything fluid (he can’t do fluid), or slow (slow him down and you start to notice the problems). And on the other hand, Shahrukh trusts her. He will go along with her most ridiculous song ideas, even encourage her farther.
An early one that she got last minute because Saroj Khan was days late. Shahrukh brought her in for it and got her noticed by Yash Raj and Aditya Chopra, and she made the silliest funnest most charming song of the movie. “Ruk Ja O Dil Deewana”
Shiamak Devar gave Dil To Pagal Hai that distinctive Riverdance kind of look. But Farah gave us at least one song of Shahrukh being so charming we don’t even notice how poorly he is dancing. Also, balloons. You know it is a Farah song if there are balloons and/or dancing waiters. “Pyar Kar”
The easy answer is of course “Chaiyya Chaiyya”. Whether the question is “what is Shahrukh’s best dance?” or “what is Farah Khan’s best dance?” or “what is the best dance sequence ever in Hindi film?”
I have to admit to a sneaking affection for this song. It’s just so fun and silly and perfectly captures Shahrukh’s egotism that is half laughing at himself. “Baadshah”
Certainly the most complicated of their songs! 6 stars, each with their own dancing style perfectly captured by Farah, and yet she makes sure that Shahrukh looks the best of them all. “Bole Chudiyan”.
Can Farah make Juhi Chawla sexy and Shahrukh funny? Yes, she can!!! “Osaka Muraiya”
“Ishq Kameena”. Shahrukh and Aish have co-starred in 3 films, including an epic love story, and yet this one dance number has more chemistry between them than all 3 of those films combined.
Speaking of sexy, I love Shahrukh’s kind of joyful alive sexiness in this song. Even with the orange pants. “Preity Woman”
I’ve been focusing on their dance tracks together, but Farah also excels at finding a few strong movements and placing them within a montage song to heighten the emotions. “Mitwa”
As Shahrukh ages, you would think he would slow down. But instead his increasing experience has allowed him and Farah to work out more and more complex dance combinations. The difference between “Ruk Ja” and “Kaike Paan” is immense.
Okay, that’s far from all of them. Essentially if it is a good Shahrukh song, odds are it’s from Farah. Which is your favorite of these? Or which is your favorite that I DIDN’T include?
