20 years since 'Baazigar', SRK thanks all

Mumbai, Nov 12 (IANS) 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 Tuesday thanked its makers and his co-actors.

The film was released Nov 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.
