The curvaceous Shilpa Shetty’s chartbuster, ‘UP Bihar Lootne’ (Shool) will feature in the film but not in its original form! There’s a twist here, as the lead pair Tusshar and Riteish Deshmukh will gyrate to Shilpa’s ‘thumkas’ in a specially created male version of the track, choreographed by the veterans Rekha and Chinni Prakash, whose recent work in Ishaqzaade had everyone spellbound.
Titled ‘Hum Toh Hain Cappuccino’ by lyricist Kumaar, the Meet Brothers Anjjan have recreated Shilpa’s chartbuster (by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy) to make it even more commercial and club-friendly!
Last weekend, an elaborate dhaba set, which cost over 2 cr, was set up at Mumbai’s Film City where Tusshar and Riteish shot for the track with leading ladies Sarah-Jane Dias and Neha Sharma.
Says producer Ekta Kapoor, “Our team debated extensively on the choice of track before we arrived at ‘U.P. Bihar Lootne’! It’s not just another run-of-the-mill item number that you see these days! It is supremely quirky, funny and signature super kool, which goes very well with the tone of the film! The boys have completely outdone themselves and the track promises to take the hype around the film to a new level!”
Poised to become the new dance anthem post its release on July 5, the track has a promotion plan as unique as the track itself. Ekta plans to give it the widest possible viewership across a single evening by revealing it on Balaji’s four consecutive leading prime-time soaps (‘Pavitra Rishta’, ‘Parichay’, ‘Kya Hua Tera Vaada’ & ‘Bade Acche Lagte Hain’), something which has never been done before.
The track will also be the front-runner for the film’s promotion in North India, and particularly, in Delhi, U.P. & Bihar, where Riteish and Tusshar, in a rustic get-up, will tour the cities in an open truck with the track blaring from the loudspeaker.
Trust Balaji to make the ‘koolest’ moves for their films!
