Writer Mushtaq Sheikh, in his book The Making of Om Shanti Om, has revealed all that went into the making of Dard-e-Disco. He writes that when Farah Khan asked Shah Rukh to go shirtless, he refused to do so until he got six-pack abs. The superstar started working out to get the desired look.

Shah Rukh Khan needed three months to complete the transformation. He was given access to the gym on the sets too so that he could continue with his workout.
He further added, “Farah Khan had wanted “very Heroine shots” and hence she shot him coming out of the water. Moreover, she also had him in a wet shirt with buckets of water being splashed on him. The effect on the female members of the crew was very distracting with some of them having to be dragged off the set while the song was being shot.”
Om Shanti Om also featured Kirron Kher, Shreyas Talpade and Arjun Rampal in pivotal roles.
