As Karan Johar is remaking Marathi blockbuster 'Sairat', the director has by default retained its infectious track 'Zingaat' as well. Yes, you heard that right! 'Dhadak', featuring Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor will have the newbies grooving to 'Zingaat' and KJo has roped in ace choreographer Farah Khan to shake their legs on this high-on-energy dance track.
Farah took to her Instagram account to share this special piece of news and wrote, "Keeping it under wraps!! Doing JHINGAAT all night With #gennext @ishaan95 @jahnvii.kapoor (sic)." She also shared a picture of hers with Janhvi and Ishaan, literally wrapped in a blanket and made the aforesaid post.
Also, a source told DNA that the makers sure were aware of the massive popularity of Zingaat. So, it made perfect sense to retain it. "Karan and Shashank Khaitan were both on the same page. They love Zingaat and the song will be something to watch out for." However, the Hindi version will be tweaked. The report adds, "While the tune remains the same, the lyrics will be altered. The title — Zingaat — may change as they may come up with another catchy phrase."
It just took one call for Karan to convince Farah, who earlier decided to not choreograph for other films but hers. "Unlike the original, where the song was a freestyle dance number, Farah will choreograph some signature moves for the Hindi version. Ishaan and Janhvi are terrific dancers so it will be great to see them groove together," told the source to the daily.
The shoot is happening in Mumbai itself, although its backdrop is set in Rajasthan.
