Picturised on Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, the song was a part of the superhit 1995 film, directed by Aditya Chopra. Anupam played Shah Rukh’s father in the film, while Kajol played his love interest.
The video was positively received by the actor’s Twitter followers. “It’s Beautiful, they are just phenomenal !!” one person wrote. “Waiting to see Kenya’s Anupam Kher,” wrote another. Several people tagged Shah Rukh in their tweets.
Just a couple of hours before Anupam’s tweet, Shah Rukh’s wife, Gauri Khan, tweeted a throwback picture of her husband and Kajol from the film Baazigar. She wrote alongside the picture, “Can’t believe I designed this look in the 90s … Those jeans, legwarmer tee, bullet belt and a red shirt thrown over. The hand painted jeans were my favourite. Gauri khan designs has come a long way! Major throwback.”
