It was a delight to see Farhan channelling his inner Amitabh Bachchan by sporting the superstar's look from the song Khaike Pan Banaraswala from the 1978 film Don. Meanwhile, Shibani Dandekar was dressed just like Zeenat Aman from the song in Don - in pink polka dots, white pants and a white scarf around her neck. The cult classic Don was co-written by Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan. Years later, Farhan directed the remake of the film in 2006 and also helmed a sequel in 2011. A third one is reportedly on the cards.
