“There was one song which we had to shoot with a wild bear. That bear was supposed to ride a motorcycle and perform in front of the crowd while we all danced behind it. The trainer had warned us beforehand that we should not come in its way, but even though we tried to avoid it, the bear ended up chasing us! So if you watch the episode carefully, you’ll see that we were terrified and were running for our lives, but still had to look calm because the camera was rolling.” Also Read - Nagpur Police Uses Shah Rukh Khan's Dialogue From Chennai Express to Spread CVOID-19 Awareness

“It was great as we all were quite young and enthusiastic. Shah Rukh was a huge craze even at that time because his previous show Fauji had done so well. He was like a heartthrob even then. At that time when he was not even a film star, I’ve seen him getting mobbed by fans and a crowd of around 20,000 people gathering there just to see Shah Rukh Khan. He was a workoholic. He would have worked for 36 hours at a stretch if he was asked to. That kind of energy was very infectious. Plus, all of us were already excited to work with him. I definitely was, because I had loved Fauji.” Also Read - Shah Rukh Khan And Gauri Convert 4-Storey Office Into Quarantine Ward For Coronavirus + People
