With remakes becoming a trend of late, Baaghi 2 seems to be featuring an album which boasts of a couple of them. In the past we had reported that the 90s iconic song ‘Ek Do Teen’ has been recreated for the film. It originally featured Madhuri Dixit. Now, yet another popular song will be remade for this Tiger Shroff, Disha Patani starrer. The song in question is ‘Mundiyan To Bach Ke Rahi’.
The said Punjabi track featured in the Katrina Kaif, Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff starrer Boom. On the other hand, speaking of the song ‘Mundiyan’, it was originally performed by Labh Janjua. It has now been penned by Channi Singh, for Baaghi 2 featuring Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani in the lead.
“Everybody is recreating Punjabi songs and ‘Mundiyan To Bach Ke’ was the mother of the songs released earlier like ‘Kala Chashma’ and ‘Teri To, Teri Ta, Hamesha Yaad Satave’ among others. Since I had to recreate one too, I decided to go ahead with this one as it connects easily with the masses and is a fun number to groove to. All of us had a blast shooting for it,” confirmed Ahmed Khan. The director and the rest of the team wrapped up the shoot of the song in a Mumbai studio last month.
Ahmed Khan also shared that while they have retained the hook line, Ginny Diwan has rewritten the Punjabi lyrics in Hindi. “Sandeep Shirodkar has remixed the music and Rahul Shetty who had earlier choreographed ‘Beat Pe Booty’ and is now directing a track for Race 3, has given ‘Mundiyan To Bach Ke’ its moves. It is set at a wedding and I asked him to add some Punjabi tadka to the number which is a mix of Bhangra and Bollywood style,” added Ahmed.
Tiger whose hunky macho look has been grabbing the eyeballs was ready to go to any lengths for this song. His leading lady has been shot like a quintessential heroine and Ahmed is gung-ho about their sizzling chemistry. “I wanted Tiger and Disha to give us the typical hero-heroine expressions and this amused them in the beginning but two days into the song they got into the groove and even contributed with their own expressions and fun elements to the choreography. It was something new for Disha and Tiger and I kept laughing at her but she really surprised me. Even the back-up dancers connected with the song immediately and as soon as it started playing they were ready for action and reaction,” Ahmed concluded with a chuckle.
Baaghi 2 is co-Produced by Fox Star Studios and Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner name Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. It is slated to release on March 30.
