Concluding that a prominent song sequence from his upcoming film, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan (KKBKKJ) wasn*t as grandiose as he desired, Salman Khan returned to the drawing board with his team to chalk out a bigger plan. With a sprawling carnival-like set erected on Madh Island, and designed by production designer Rajat Poddarr, Khan employed 800 dancers for this new version, up from the 100 that were part of the original sequence.
A unit-member says, "Salman is looking into every department for this film, and wants it to look good. We are shooting a bright, colourful, and vibrant song with him, his romantic interest, and four other couples. Earlier, this song was shot on a terrace, but Salman thought it appeared small. They wanted the song to look visually grand, because it is a celebration of life and happiness. They tweaked the story a bit, so, now the incident [that leads to the song] happens in a mela. South choreographer Jani Master, who choreographed Salman*s Seeti maar in Radhe, has designed this one."
Over eight days, Poddarr*s team put up the set, where filming resumed on November 27, and is expected to conclude today. "The mela set includes ferris wheels, tents, and fabrics in vibrant colours. The costumes and fluorescent lights employed are reminiscent of [melas that occur] in north India. All the songs in the film are item songs. In another track, Salman sports a lungi, and dances to south Indian steps."
The track also features Pooja Hegde, Raghav Juyal, Jassi Gill, Vijender Singh, Siddharth Nigam, and Shehnaaz Kaur Gill. The music has been composed by Ravi Basrur. Other musicians affiliated with the film include Devi Sri Prasad, Honey Singh, and Sajid-Wajid.
