Looks like Rajkumar Gupta managed to make a reluctant Emraan Hashmi literally dance to his tunes

Emraan was initially supposed to groove to a qawwali track in his upcoming film Ghanchakkar. But since he doesn’t like to dance much, Emraan was not in the favour of doing his act. But after Gupta intervened, Emraan decided to change his mind.

A source says, “Emraan has not done hard-core dance numbers in the past few years as he does not like dancing. When the makers came up with the idea of the qawwali sequence, he immediately wanted to know if the track was absolutely necessary.”

The director however explained to the actor how the track would benefit the film’s promotions and the actor had no other option but to agree.

Sources say after the actor returned after his recent overseas holiday, he filmed for the song.

Says Emraan, “After Rajkumar and the makers put across their request, I went ahead with it. In hindsight, I think the dance has turned out pretty well.”
