Rehashing songs from the 90s is the current fad in Bollywood. No commercial Hindi film is complete without a remixed version of an old hit number. So as it goes, Madhuri Dixit’s super-hit song, Ek Do Teen has been reworked for Tiger Shroff’s upcoming film, Baaghi 2. And guess what? Jacqueline Fernandez will dance to the new tunes of the number as a part of her cameo on the film, which also stars Disha Patani as the female lead.
Choreographer turned director Ahmed Khan, who was Saroj Khan’s (choreographer of the original song) assistant for a long time has her blessings. Ganesh Acharya, who was one of the back-up dancers in the original, is choreographing the remixed version of the song.
Jacqueline will start shooting for the song today (February 8), and this will go on for the next three days. “There will be three choreographers on the set today, that’s a picture perfect moment in itself,” Ahmed told Mumbai Mirror adding that, “It’s an all-time favourite and I have asked Ganesh to retain Sarojji’s famous hook steps and Manish Malhotra to keep Madhuri Dixit’s pink outfit in mind while designing Jacqueline’s costume.
I want the same feel of the earlier song that still looms large on everyone’s mind and also the same vibe, with the crowds chanting ‘Mohini, Mohini’ as Madhuri takes the stage.”
Ahmed, who has choreographed Jacqueline in the songs, Lat Lag Gayi (Race 2) and Jumme Ki Raat (Kick) feels “she is the perfect choice”. Well, Jacqueline has a lot of pressure on her with this one. Madhuri had become an overnight sensation after Ek Do Teen and as Ahmed has said, this is the song that is still extremely popular. It will be interesting to see how Jacqueline will pull this off.
