I love you Shah Rukh, Kajol, Abbas bhai, Mustan bhai and last but not the least Venus (Music label), Ratan ji (producer) for introducing me. And yeah, gosh, I survived the drop and I'm looking 25."
Shilpa, who also thanked her fans and followers for "constant support", added this message in the caption: "12th November, on this day I made my debut with Baazigar. Dunno how time has flown as we celebrate 25 years of Baazigar and 25 years of my career.

Meanwhile, speaking to news agency PTI on Sunday, Mustan Burmawalla revealed that Baazigar was initially filmed with two endings and added that both Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor had turned down the role of the anti-hero, finally played by Shah Rukh: "People still like the film and it is a big compliment to the entire team. The important thing is the maker should be convinced with his own vision as that will reflect on screen. We had a hero playing a negative role. Though it led to the hit pairing of Shah Rukh and Kajol, it was not a romantic film. But it all worked well," PTI quoted him as saying.
On the work front, Shilpa Shetty was last seen in Dishkiyaoon and co-judged the recently concluded dance reality show Super Dancer.
