MUMBAI—While in most dance numbers an actress perform her moves with multiple side dancers in the background, the team of Rakesh Roshan's upcoming film “Kaabil” has come up with an entire new concept of the so-called “item” song. The film's “Haseeno Ka Deewana” song has just Urvashi Rautela setting the stage on fire with her sizzling moves.
Choreographer Ahmed Khan said: "We had around 100 odd dancers and 200 junior artists in the song and decided to use them to add energy and cheering to the song rather than dance behind the artist. Generally, there is one principal artist with dancers behind him or her but this time we entered into a new concept of just the principal artist performing with absolutely nobody supporting or dancing behind them in the same frame.”
Khan said that it was great working with Rautela for Rakesh & Rajesh Roshan's “Saara Zamaana Haseeno Ka Deewana,” a remake of the original song from 1981 movie “Yaarana” starring Amitabh Bachchan.
“She is an amazing dancer and I had seen some of her earlier songs in order to get an idea of her abilities,” he said.
Khan added that Rautela’s tall structure (she is 178cm tall) was an addition to make her dance moves come out well. “Her height and amazing dance moves helped! Generally having such a height restricts you from being agile and fast but that was not the case with her!"
The idea of having only Urvashi Rautela mesmerizing the audience with her suave dance steps is fascinating and will mark the start of a new concept in Bollywood! The combination of Rajesh Roshan's music, Ahmed Khan's choreography and Rautela's gracious moves is already making the song a success.
“Kaabil,” produced by Rakesh Roshan and directed by Sanjay Gupta, stars Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam and will hit theatres on Jan. 25, 2017.
