Actress Shilpa Shetty had once talked about her experience while going for the song, Aye Mere Humsafar, when she faced the camera for the first time. In an old interview, Shilpa likewise talked about how she was standing with her to the camera for her first scene in her debut movie Baazigar. She uncovered it was her co-star Shah Rukh Khan who offered her advice which stayed with her.
In an interaction with Mumbai Mirror in 2020, Shilpa had said, “The first time I faced the camera was for the song Aye Mere Humsafar. Other unit members had all carried duvet covers and bed sheets from their hotel rooms to the location. It was eight degrees in Igatpuri and I was shivering in a flimsy salwar kameez because I had no idea it was going to get so cold. I was just 17 then, straight out of college, and though a lot of boys liked me, I hadn’t even hugged one before. I was really innocent, but luckily, the song required me to look nervous, so it worked.”
She added, “I didn’t even know how to lip-sync and was standing with my back to the camera for my first scene. Rekha Chinni Prakash, the choreographer, kept screaming ‘Cut’ and telling me my hair was obstructing the shot. Thank God for Shah Rukh, who took me aside and told me that the camera is my audience so even though I was giving beautiful expressions, no one could see. That bit of advice has stayed with me.”
