Baaghi 2: Jacqueline Fernandez gets into Madhuri Dixit mode, dances to Ek Do Teen. Watch teaser
Nothing works like old wine in new bottle. Nobody knows it better than apna Bollywood. After the success of hit ‘90s songs such as Tamma Tamma (re-used in Badranath Ki Dulhaniya; originally from Thanedaar) and Hawa Hawai (re-used in Tumhari Sulu; originally from Mr India), now it is the turn of another iconic song -- Ek Do Teen -- to get a new lease of life. The song that pretty much announced the arrival of dhak dhak girl, Madhuri Dixit, is all set to be recreated in upcoming Tiger Shroff starrer Baaghi 2. And doing the honours is Sri Lankan beauty, Jacqueline Fernandez.
The first look of the song was released early on Friday. Now, the makers have unveiled a short 25-second teaser of the song. Sizzling her way into many hearts is Jacqueline -- the song teaser follows the beats of the opening lines of the song, 1, 2, 3... as crowds roar: Mohini, Mohini. Midway through the teaser, camera follows Jacqueline from behind. Soon, with the camera facing her, she does a dance move as the crowd cheers on.
The iconic song seems to have been deliberately sexualised.
In the picture, Jacqueline can be seen striking the now-familiar pose of Madhuri looking for her beloved to arrive. Donning a similar dress as the original, Jacqueline is sitting, one hand over her forehead as the other arm is stretched away from her body. She is surrounded by a host of men standing with huge light bulbs. Her wears a multi-coloured bustier with a short pink-and-yellow skirt with thigh-high cuts. She also wears a stone-studded waist band.
The look has been designed by ace designer Manish Malhotra.
Jacqueline is a delight to behold -- her perfectly toned body adds to the visual appeal. The picture has since gone viral and one of the pictures, being shared on Instagram, says that the video song is expected to be out soon.
On the question of recreating a song so iconic, Bollywood Life quoted the actor as saying, “That was my first stress, that how can we recreate something so iconic, like is it even possible? It made it lot easier for me when I understood that it is not possible. We’re not trying to match up to what Madhuri Dixit did. We are not trying to match up to what Saroj (Khan) ji did. We are honestly fans, big, big fans of their work. This is honestly, more than anything, a tribute to an amazing and iconic number that they gave to us.”
Baaghi 2 stars Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani in the lead roles and has been directed by choreographer-turned-filmmaker Ahmed Khan. The film releases on March 30.
