Shah Rukh Khan took a risk by playing a villain in Baazigar 20 years ago, and he is still reaping rich dividends for that. The superstar on Tuesday thanked its makers and his co-actors.
The film released on November 12, 1993.
"20 years of Baazigar. Thanks Abbas-Mustan, Kajol, Shilpa (Shetty) and Rakhiji (Rakhi Gulzar)," Shah Rukh posted on his Twitter page, and also quoted the famous dialogue from the film saying: "Abhi bhi haarkar jeetne wale ko Baazigar kehte hain (Even today, the person who wins the losing battle is called a Baazigar)."
Baazigar is one of the few films starring Shah Rukh in a negative role. Other such films include Anjaam and Darr.
Shah Rukh is currently busy working in Farah Khan's Happy New Year which also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani.
