Hip-Hop meets desi bhangra for Akshay-Sonakshi's song in Joker
Though Sonakshi Sinha would like to believe that she is as grown-up as the rest of the cast shooting on location in Chandigarh for Shirish Kunder's Joker, the truth is, she is treated as the baby of the Joker family.
And the unit pampers her no end. When they heard her get wistful about not having done any modern dancing so far, choreographer Farah Khan, who was in Chandigarh to shoot a pucca desi number, decided to pamper Sonakshi. It was meant to be a hardcore desi number shot in the lush sarson fields of Chandigarh. But then, hip-hop came into it. How come? Akshay Kumar's song-and-dance with Sonakshi Sinha was shot in Chandigarh last week.
In the middle of the song, a hip-hop section was introduced, much to Sonakshi's delight, since this was her first attempt at something so desi ever since she started shooting for Dabangg. Says a source, "Sonakshi was very keen on trying western steps. She was looking forward to grooving in Joker. But when the first song and dance in Joker turned out to be a desi item she was disappointed. Shirish and Farah then decided to add a hip-hop section." Farah Khan confirms the inclusion of hip-hop in the gaon ka gaana.
"It's a situation where Akshay Kumar has returned home in Punjab from the US. There's a celebratory song and dance. It does have a very special hip-hop section."...being a human...
