Mahesh Manjrekar on shooting a festive number with Salman Khan and Varun Dhawan for Antim
Varun Dhawan and Salman Khan
What's Bollywood without a few favours. Salman Khan, who is known to go the extra mile to play cameos in his friends' movies, has now roped in Varun Dhawan in his upcoming film, Antim: The Final Truth. Despite his impending nuptials on January 26, the Coolie No 1 actor took time out to pay heed to Khan's request for the Mahesh Manjrekar directorial. "It is a Ganpati celebration number that was shot in Film City recently. It is Salman and Mahesh's brainchild," informs a source, adding that the song choreographed by Mudassar Khan "is a fast-paced number that will showcase Salman, Varun and Aayush Sharma in traditional attire".
The song Dev Bappa Ganesha will be a chartbuster, promises Manjrekar. "It's a wonderful, peppy dance track that will play out an important scene in the film against the backdrop of Ganpati festivities. The song is composed by Hitesh Modak, who has worked with me before in Panghrun [short story]," says the director of the film that is inspired by the Marathi version, titled Mulshi Pattern.
