Atif Aslam shakes a leg with Tiger Shroff in dance video
Billed as Bollywood’s latest dancing sensation, Tiger Shroff has come out with a new dance video in which Pakistani singer Atif Aslam is seen matching steps with him. The video is a tribute to youths and dreamers in particular, and life in general.

Says Tiger, “It was just an idea that I wanted to explore after being accepted so warmly for my debut film, Heropanti. The children and youth inspired me to come out with the video which celebrates life, camaraderie and spreads positivity too. All that comes across quite clearly in the video.”
The actor shared his concept with choreographer Ahmed Khan, who readily agreed to team up with him. Later, producer Bhushan Kumar came on board. Aslam has lent his voice to the background score composed by Amaal Malik and penned by Manoj Muntashir. Tiger’s dance team and a group of boys who practice acrobats with him also feature in the video apart from his dance teacher, Prashant.
As per the original plan, the singer was not supposed to feature in the video, but did so on Khan’s insistence. “I was not planning to dance, but Ahmad in the middle of the shoot wanted me to and I had just about 20 minutes to prepare. Dancing with Tiger was difficult because he is amazing at it. The song is peppy and upbeat and I will probably try to get the independent music culture back,” says Aslam.
On shaking a leg with him, Tiger says, “His fans will see a different side of him as he has not done something like this before. He didn’t have time to practice the choreography.
It was given to him on the spot and he was sporting enough to do it.”
