National award winning choreographer Bosco Martis has directed Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone's title track of 'Pathaan,' called 'Jhoome Jo Pathaan.' The choreographer shared memories of shooting the song in Spain and recalls how the number came to life.
Bosco said, "The entire vibe of shooting in Spain, blocking streets, creating a whole festive euphoria and celebrating Shah Rukh Khan's signature move, is what made the song special. All these factors glorified the song and 'Jhoome Jo Pathaan' is so significant to Shah Rukh Khan's personality. Overall, it was quite an experience shooting with so many dancers, we had a parkour team to do flips. Both SRK and Deepika have tremendous screen presence, so you are constantly on your toes. Khan saab would come in to rehearse at 10.30-11 pm and go on till 1am. All the hard work has paid off and people of different age groups are tagging me in so many reels that I have been re-sharing. The film looks promising and after a long time we are looking forward to something like this." He adds that credit should also be given to the costume, hair-makeup and other departments who did their best for the song.

Recalling how he came on board for the grand number, Bosco says director Siddharth Anand and he go back a long way. "We worked on 'Bang Bang' 'War' and some small patchworks. Sid really believes in the way I treat songs and he makes me feel like a song director, he just lets me do my thing. He's also a great bouncing board, he told me the character Khan saab is playing is a certain age so he needs appropriate steps. The dance had to be subtle, we couldn't go over the top. The steps had to be simple, believable and organic." He adds the song was shot over 4 days for which a detailed recce and permissions were required.
