Customers of Kalamandir store in Hyderabad were in for a surprise when actor Harshvardhan Rane along his co-stars Avantika Mishra and Sushma Raj broke into a dhoti dance as part of the promotions for their upcoming Telugu thriller Maaya.
Directed by Neelakanta, Maaya is about extrasensory perception and is slated for release August 1. It is produced by filmmaker Madhura Sreedhar.
"Madhura sir is always creative when it comes it publicity, so this time he came up with the theme of dhoti dance. Our director wanted us to just let ourselves loose, enjoy and be silly. We thoroughly enjoyed doing the dhoti dance and I just hope people were able to recognize us in those costumes," said Harshavardhan.
Harshavardhan and his co-stars danced to the song Pokiri Raja Eelavesinadey.
"What I really loved about the theme of this song is that it's fun and it's totally contrary to the film which is very intelligent. I need to thank my director for giving us an opportunity to break into dance movements in a shopping mall," he added.
