Deepika Padukone

After showcasing her dance skills in

Om Shanti

, Deepika Padukone is now doing her own take on some famous

naach gaanas

in her soon-to-release film,

Karthik Calling Karthik


The track,

Uff, teri yeh ada…

features the star trying to lure introverted Farhan Akhtar onto the dance floor. And when he refuses to budge, she tries every move she’s ever seen in the movies, from Hrithik Roshan’s

Ek pal ka jeena

from his debut film,

Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai

to Amitabh Bachchan’s

Kajra re…

act in

Bunty Aur Babli

and Bipasha Basu’s

Beedi jalayi le...

sizzler from


, to hook him.

Opposites attract
The pretty actress was aided in her efforts by choreographers Uma and Gaiti. This is the first time that the two characters go clubbing in the movie. Talking about them, director Vijay Lalwani explains, “Deepika plays a fun girl, an extrovert, while Farhan is the exact opposite. He doesn’t dance or drink while she has already downed a couple of pegs and is now trying to get him to match her, jhatka for jhatka.”

So does she get him on the dance floor? “Yes,” he nods. “But he still doesn’t really dance.” The song was filmed over two days at Rock Bottom, Juhu.

The director adds that they used popular steps so that the audience could connect with the song instantly.
