Thanks to a busy and overworked Pritam, Madhuri Dixit’s item number in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani was kept in waiting. The film, which is slated to release on May 31, finally completed the shoot of the Ghagra track only last week!
Even though promotions of the film have already begun with Ranbir flying off to London for the publicity, the shoot of the Madhuri number, was on hold. Producer Karan Johar and director Ayam Mukerji had some anxious moments waiting for Pritam to deliver the item number.
Says a source, “Only the Ghagra song was still left leaving the makers on tenterhooks as the release date was almost upon them. As usual, the hard pressed for time Pritam was not delivering the last song.” The item number choreographed by Farah Khan was shot at the Filmistan Studios. The set had being prepared and the makers were hoping the song would come in time.
Adds the source, “Pritam eventually manage to complete it by giving one-one line on the sets with the shoot wrapped up in four and a half days.” It appears that it was one long anxious wait for Madhuri’s Ghagra!
