    Even as Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Paheli’ gears up to represent India in the Best Foreign Film category at the Oscar’s 2006, we bring you behind-the-scenes pictures and trivia on it.
    Did you know?
    It was shot in 47 days
    Rajasthan-like sets were created by Muneesh Sappel at Film City in 45 days
    The step-well scene was shot on real location at Toda Rai Singh, Jaipur
    Hundreds of sand-filled trucks were brought in from Rajasthan and Gujarat for the desert scene
    The camel- race scene was shot at a dried-up riverbed in Samod, Jaipur
    SRK’s room as Kishen, the spirit, was designed with Lord Krishna as inspiration. It was fresco-painted in mystical shades of indigo, peacock blue and sea-green.
    Amitabh Bachchan actually drank from one of the ‘chagals’ (desert water-bottles) made from goat-kid hide.
    The men’s costumes (designed by Shalini Sarna) were washed in tea-water to give a worn look.
    Eight pairs of Rajasthani jootis were embroidered for SRK .
    Bachchan’s wardrobe was tailored in Pali, Rajasthan. To maintain authenticity, the tailors were not told that the costumes were for him.

    SRK’s pagdi was 30 metres in length.
