Pehla Nasha (Hindi: पहला नशा, Urdu: پہلا نشہ‎, English: First Intoxication (as in Love)) is a 1993 Indian film directed by Ashutosh Gowariker who made his directorial debut. The movie is a remake of Brian de Palma's 1984 thriller Body Double. Deepak Tijori plays the lead role alongside Pooja Bhatt, Raveena Tandon and Paresh Rawal. The film also has cameo appearances by Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Saif Ali Khan as themselves. It is the only film to feature Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan in a scene together. Ashutosh Gowariker recently commented that it may also be the last time the two actors share screen space together. Other upcoming actors at the time such as Sudesh Berry and Rahul Roy also appeared in the same scene. Upon release, the film received poor reviews and failed at the box office.[1]


A down and out actor, Deepak Bakshi (Deepak Tijori), who has claustrophobia and deep fear of enclosed spaces, goes to live as a care-taker in a multi-storied apartment, belonging to his friend (Jayant Kripalani), while he is away. His friend shows him a telescope which is used for spying on a neighborhood building which houses a beautiful woman. Deepak takes to spying on a regular basis. One day while spying on the woman, Deepak sees her getting attacked. He decides to get involved, and lands himself into trouble with the police as he is now a suspect for murder. Later he is able to solve the mystery by overcoming his phobia and catching the main killer.
