While every move of Shah Rukh Khan in the song Besharm Rang from Pathaan is worth noticing, one cannot get enough of the way he does an adab gesture to Deepika Padukone. It has many watching it on repeat mode.

In a special video that has been released by Yash Raj Films, the makers of Pathaan, choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant shared that the Baadshah of Bollywood gave several variations of one hand gesture that eventually put everyone in a hard spot to edit out anything, because every single variation was worth retaining in the final cut.

Vaibhavi said, "Shah Rukh gave several variations of the adab gesture. He looked away and then back at the camera, and again did another variation. Like this, he gave some 50 variations from him. And it was a difficult job for all of us at the edit table, because we didn't know what to cut and what to keep - all shots were that good." 

She added that every day, Shah Rukh floored everyone on the set with his charm and that he would always bring the best version of himself to work.

The National Award-winning choreographer has earlier worked with SRK in films like Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Fan and Jab Harry Met Sejal. Vaibhavi said that the superstar makes everyone around him look wonderful.

Pathaan, directed by Sidharth Anand and produced by Aditya Chopra, is an action thriller in which SRK plays a RAW field agent in exile, who returns to protect his nation.

The song Besharm Rang is composed by Vishal-Shekhar, and sung by Shilpa Rao, Caralisa Monteiro, Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani.

The film, also starring Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia, Gautam Rode and Ashutosh Rana, releases in theatres on January 25.
