Katrina Kaif's item number Chikni Chameli in Karan Johar's forthcoming film Agneepath has become a superhit. But it wasn't an easy task for choreographer Ganesh Acharya and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya.
While Sanjay Dutt's back in his 'Khalnayak' avatar, Hrithik Roshan steps into the mighty shoes of Amitabh Bachchan. Priyanka Chopra too stands out in this male-centric movie. From the look of it, Karan Johar's Agneepath does look like a total masala fare. Check out the stills.
After director Karan Malhotra decided to use music directors Ajay and Atul's hit
number Komdi Palali, writing lyrics on it was a tough job for Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Ganesh Acharya choreographed the song fantastically, ensuring that he got just the right expressions from Katrina Kaif.
In fact lavni style dancing was not a cakewalk for her. "The response to Chikni Chameli has been fun so far. It was hard work. It was very fast and it was not a style I was used to, but I took it as a challenge. I think we all went for it as a team and did the best we could. I am happy people are liking it," the 27-year-old actor said in an interview.
The song features when Kancha (played by Sanjay Dutt) organises a celebration for Vijay (played by Hrithik Roshan) who comes to meet him. Hence, Sanjay and Hrithik are also seen in the video.
Agneepath is scheduled to release on January 26.
