Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Kapoor set to hit the dance floors again
Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Kapoor to reprise popular '90s number, Akhiyan Milaoon Kabhi Akhiyan Churaoon, for wedding sequence on Kapoor's TV show
Two decades after she made dancing atop a car and sporting a waist belt popular in the track Akhiyan Milaoon Kabhi Akhiyan Churaoon (Raja, 1995) Madhuri Dixit-Nene is set to reprise the song with co-star Sanjay Kapoor for the latter's TV show. Dil Sambhal Jaa Zara, which sees Kapoor romance a girl significantly younger than him, will feature Nene in a special appearance at the behest of show producer Vikram Bhatt.
A source tells mid-day, "It was Vikram's idea to extend an invitation to Madhuri. He bounced it off Sanjay , who was happy to match steps with his former co-star again."
Although Indra Kumar's directorial venture had several hit tracks, the makers decided to use this song for the show, given that it is Kapoor's favourite. "It's special for me. People still remember the song and its steps. It will be a nostalgic moment for me to recreate the song with Madhuri on TV," he says.
The upcoming episodes of the show will focus on the nuptials of Kapoor's character with his love interest. Nene will feature as Kapoor's old friend, who turns up to be part of the wedding festivities. She will shake a leg with him during the sangeet ceremony. The source adds, "Madhuri will shoot for the sequence in a few days. She has already begun rehearsing. It's fun to see Sanjay and Madhuri reunite for the song. The episode will air later this month."
The original number, rendered by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan, was composed by Nadeem-Shravan. It had Nene and Kapoor dancing around a vintage car in a warehouse. Nene, we hear, shares a rapport with the Kapoor brothers -- Boney, Anil and Sanjay -- and gave her nod to be part of the show immediately.
