It has been 10 years since the magic of OSO hit the big screen. The best part then and now remains the Multi-Starrer song “Deewangi”, that song is just so full of fanfare and opulence. Farah Khan had almost the entire Bollywood appear in that one song. From Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Mithun Chakraborty, Rekha, Shabana Azmi, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji, Kajol, Preity Zinta, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, to Karisma Kapoor and Bobby Deol. Farah wanted more and also approached these stars however they declined the offer.
Farah Khan approached Aamir Khan to make a special appearance in the Deewangi song but he pleaded inability to shoot. He was busy with the shooting of Taare Zameen Par and his participation in the song would have delayed his film.
Anil had his own reasons to not be a part of the song. He feared that he would be made fun of, on the sets. Also, he did not feel like being one among so many actors!
Farah Khan was keen on having Dev Anand in the Deewangi song, however, the actor declined the offer as he never does special appearances. Dev Anand explained that till date, he has always played lead roles and he did not wish to break this tradition by doing something like this. He therefore politely declined the offer.
She wanted to appear in the song with husband Boney Kapoor. But since the song had actors and actresses only and not their spouses, she could not be accommodated.
Farah Khan was very keen to rope in Amitabh Bachchan for the song but because of his busy schedule and personal health issues, he couldn’t be a part of it.
