Ahmed Khan, who is directing the movie, said in a statement, “There will be three choreographers on the set… That’s a picture perfect moment in itself! It’s an all-time favourite, and I have asked Ganesh to retain Sarojji’s great hook steps and Manish Malhotra to keep Madhuri Dixit’s pink outfit in mind while designing while designing Jacqueline’s costume.”
‘Ek do teen’ was originally choreographed by the veteran Saroj Khan. Ahmed has earlier worked with Jacqueline on numbers like ‘Chittiyan kalaiyan’, ‘Lat lag gayee’ and ‘Jumme ki Raat’. He said he wants the same vibe for the recreated version. “I want the same feel of the earlier song that still looms large on everyone’s mind and also the same vibe, with the Biggest crowds chanting ‘Mohini, Mohini’ as Madhuri takes the stage,” he said.
Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez is all set to recreate the iconic Madhuri Dixit number, Ek Do Teen, for Baaghi 2. Ek Do Teen was directed initially by veteran choreographer Saroj Khan while Ganesh Acharya will be at the helm of affairs this time. Interestingly, Ganesh Acharya was one of the background dancers in the Madhuri Dixit song from Tezaab (1988) while Baaghi 2’s director Ahmed Khan was Saroj Khan’s assistant at the time.
Disclosing details of the shoot, Ahmed Khan said in a press statement, “There will be three choreographers on the set today, that’s a picture perfect moment in itself. It’s an all-time favourite, and I have asked Ganesh to retain Sarojji’s great hook steps and Manish Malhotra to maintain Madhuri Dixit’s pink outfit in thoughts while designing Jacqueline’s dress. I want the same sense of the earlier song that also looms massively on everyone’s mind and also the similar vibe, with the crowds chanting ‘Mohini, Mohini’ as Madhuri takes the stage.”
