Why Vipul Shah wanted his heroine Pooja Chopra to wear a different coloured saree in 'Commando'

With Katrina Kaif wearing a black saree in the popular track from Vipul Shah’s Singh Is Kinng, Teri Ore went on to become a chartbuster. However, the producer was unwilling to have a deja vu moment when he realised his upcoming film’s heroine Pooja Chopra too was sporting a black saree in a song.

The producer put his foot down and asked the designers to give Pooja a different saree. A source says, “Recently the film’s lead actors Vidyut Jamwal and Pooja had shot a song in Bhuj. Shooting in the desert, Vipul was keen to recreate the magic of Teri Ore. However, he was very clear that he didn’t want the song to be a copy.”

The producer felt that everyone who had seen Katrina shimmering in her black saree in Singh Is Kinng would go back in the moment. The source adds, “ To bring out Pooja’s look, the designer had to change to a different coloured saree and it suited her fine.” However, Vidyut is said to be wearing white in the song, exactly like Akshay Kumar sported in the previous film. Vipul remained unavailable for comment.
