The star cast of OM SHANTI OM continues to swell. We're well

aware of topnotch stars like Sanjay Dutt, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan and

many others featuring in a pivotal song in this keenly anticipated film, but

there's more to look forward to. SRK and director Farah Khan have roped

in Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan as well, not for

the song in question, but a scene preceding the talked-about star-studded


However, the three actors have yet to shoot for the film. “That's true,”

Farah confirms the development. Why aren't the three part of the famed

song? “In the film, the three are the final contenders for the Filmfare Best

Actor Award and since they lose the award to SRK, it would look odd if

we showed them sing and dance in the post-awards celebration party-

song,” she clarifies.

Meanwhile, SRK and Farah have decided to launch the music of the

film with pomp and gaiety on 18th September at a suburban hotel.

On the personal front, Farah has started supervising the post-

production work from the cool comforts of her home and there's a valid

reason for it. Farah and husband Shirish Kunder are going to become

parents soon -- Farah is expecting triplets.
