Vaani Kapoor’s next War will see her opposite Hrithik Roshan on screen. Their first dance number— Ghungroo was choreographed by Tushar Kalia, who reveals that Vaani took three months to perfect the techniques and was injured several times.
“It’s one of the most difficult songs I have ever choreographed. For the first time ever, an actress is attempting a routine that involves Cyr wheel and aerial rotating pole and both are very difficult routines to pull off even if you are a brilliant dancer. Once I shared the idea with Siddharth (Anand) and Vaani, they were very kicked about it and she wanted to do everything on her own. She didn’t want a body double for this,” says Tushar.
He adds, “Vaani is such a hardworking actor and I was amazed to see her commitment. She got so many bruises, fell so many times, and it was bad. Physically, it was very challenging but she never gave up, nor skipped a single day of rehearsal. It is because of her dedication, commitment and hard work that the song has come out so well. I’m really proud of what she has done in the song.”
Vaani says, “My body endured a lot during rehearsals and the shoot. It was physically demanding and extremely challenging, but all the sweat and bruises were definitely worth it as it gave me the opportunity to pull off something entirely new. I’m super happy and grateful that people are loving my performance loving the song and film.”
Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film is set to release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on October 2.
