In the video, Merchant wasn’t alone, she was joined by another ace choreographer Bosco Martis, who choreographed the stunning moves of Pathaan’s title track Jhoome Jo Pathaan. The video of their impromptu dance performance was shared online by actor Shaji Choudhary. Both the choreographers take the centre stage as spectators can be heard cheering for the dancer duo. Standing in close proximity, at first, the two opt for some twists before moving on to doing some freestyle moves. “Party full on,” read the caption of the video. Watch it here:
Ever since the release of Besharam Rang, the sensuous track has garnered tremendous backlash online owing to a saffron bikini donned by Deepika Padukone. It drew the attention of many politicians in the country who called it indecent and also associated the costume with communal angles. Previously, in a YouTube interview released by Pathaan’s production house Yash Raj Films, Vaibhavi Merchant commented about her idea behind the song’s choreography.
The choreographer said that she wanted Besharam Rang to look different from a Hindi party song. Hence, from the location, steps, nuances, and steps were ideated carefully. “This song was about nuances, about adaa, about sensuality and relaxation in your body. Therefore, it made sense for even Shah Rukh’s character to lose that shirt and walk out. Nobody goes to a beach wearing full clothes,” she said.
Besides Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, John Abraham plays the key role of the main antagonist in the spy thriller, directed by Siddharth Anand. The film has hit the theatres in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
