One of the youngest choreographers Saurabh Prajapati has been in the industry for a while now. Whether it is his latest song ‘Yaai Re’ with Yo Yo Honey Singh or his songs with composer-singer Vishal Mishra, his works have already been appreciated. His song with Terence Lewis ‘Aao Naa’ was launched last year in popular reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’.

Sharing his experience, Saurabh says, “We had launched our song ‘Aao Naa’ by Vishal Mishra in ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 10’. It was a special day for me because, a few years ago in ‘Jhalak Season 9’, I was a part of the choreography team. Coming and promoting my song as a director in the same show was like a great moment. I can say my heart was full of gratitude. God is kind. We did a preview of our song ‘Aao naa’ for the live audience and it got a great response! No one could stop singing it. I remember when we showed the video to Karan Johar, he loved it. He couldn't believe that we shot the entire song in just one day. Also, for the underwater sequence he was surprised how we pulled it off in such a short time period.”
Saurabh also added, “The dancing diva Madhuri Dixit was so happy with the song; she was praising our work a lot. She is a legend herself, so it means a lot to me. Nora Fatehi also loved it and told me the visuals are spectacular and have an international standard. Composer Vishal Mishra has sung and composed it beautifully. Kaushal Kishore has penned the song and his lyrics are magical. Mayur Hasija has produced the song”.

Talking About Terence Lewis, Saurabh said, “He worked very hard. The quality of output is all because of his hard work and dedication. I have invested 2 months in the project as we had to finish it in one day. Larrisa Bonesi was gorgeous in the song and she was very co-operative and supportive. When I met her for the first time for the audition, she made me feel in just 10 minutes how much she is willing to do this song. Her passion to do good work was visible and as a director I had got a great team.''
The most special sequence in ‘Aao Naa’ was the underwater dance sequence which has perhaps never happened before in Bollywood in India. Saurabh added, “I made Terence Lewis do contemporary dance under water - that is something new and unseen for the Indian audience. I love to do things which are unexplored. The entire Bollywood industry shared the song on their social media platforms to showcase their love. I am grateful to everyone from the bottom of my heart.”
