KATHMABDU: Bollywood film director and choreographer Farah Khan has recalled choreographing Sushant Singh Rajput in Dil Bechara’s title track, saying that the song was particularly close to her as she was choreographing her ‘friend’ for the first time while fulfilling her promise with director Mukesh Chhabra. The song was released on July 10.
