The Punjabi sensation Guru Randhawa became a huge hit worldwide with his blockbuster single, ‘High Rated Gabru’. Since then, the singer has ventured into Bollywood and given some of the most tracks in the past year. Now, his song has been recreated in Remo D’souza’s next, Nawabzaade. Not only that, the song has reunited the ABCD 2 gang Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, Dharmesh, Punit Pathak and Raghav Juyal.
The full track released on Thursday morning with a complete music video. Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor, who recently performed at IIFA Awards 2018. recreate their amazing chemistry in the song with smooth yet groovy dance moves. Dance India Dance alums, who are starring in Nawabzaade, also feature in the music video as they showcase stunning moves. The filming of Nawabzaade has begun and the first song is definitely a foot tapping number.
The song which has been shot in a Mumbai studio has been choreographed by Remo D’Souza. The original song by Guru has already crossed more than 400 million views on YouTube and is expected to soar further with its presence in a Bollywood film.
Speaking about being part of this special song, Varun informs, “Having worked with Raghav, Punit and Dharmesh, I know them to be very talented boys. When I heard Remo sir was doing a film with them I knew I had to be part of it in some way. So when this song came up, Shraddha and I decided to feature in this special video.” He adds, “It was a lot of fun, sharing screen space with Shraddha again. We are very comfortable with each other and ‘High Rated Gabru’ is already a chartbuster.”
Shraddha says she too did not want to miss the opportunity of re-uniting with the ABCD 2 team. “I was all charged to work again with Remo sir, Varun and a few others from the ABCD 2 gang. When I got to know that we are going to be shooting a video for High Rated Gabru, I got even more excited because the song is fantastic and so loved. The whole experience of shooting it was fun. I felt nostalgic,” Shraddha chirps unable to hold back her excitement.
Bhushan Kumar of T-Series adds, “I am sure this song is now going to go on a different level. Varun and Shraddha had developed a fantastic camaraderie with the actors of ABCD 2. So it was not surprising that they agreed to be part of this video.”
Remo D’souza who has choreographed the special video maintains, “It was heartening to see that, Varun and Shraddha were so accommodating to give what it takes to make this number extraordinary. I am glad we could do this for my protégés from ABCD2. It will help to create a buzz around Nawabzaade.”
On his song being included in a Bollywood film Guru adds, “This is my third song being picked for a Bollywood film after songs in ‘Hindi Medium’ and ‘Tumhari Sulu’. It’s an exciting period for me as I am getting to work with a lot of new people. Varun Paji has been very fond of my original song and he suggested the same to the makers. I was all charged when I heard that we are recreating the song with Varun Paji, I’ve always been waiting for that. We have tried to maintain the vibe of the song with a few improvisations. I’m thankful to Bhushanji, Varun, Shraddha for such an amazing experience. I hope this version of High Rated Gabru with Shraddha and Varun’s power-packed dance moves receives as much love from the audience as the original track did.”
Nawabzaade is produced by Remo D’Souza under Remo D’Souza Entertainment and directed by Jayesh Pradhan.
