It is the song that everyone has been waiting for! The dance off between two of the best dancers in Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. For their upcoming action thriller War, the duo get down to the Holiday beats of ‘Jai Jai Shivshankar’. Expected to a hug hit it has exceeded expectations and has already been viewed over 29 million times on YouTube alone and the number is still going up!
Director Siddharth Anand says, “Since the inception of the film, people were speculating that there would be a huge dance anthem featuring two of the best dancers of our country (India), Hrithik and Tiger. While people were wowed that two of the biggest action heroes of India were combining for the first time, they were also equally excited to see them dance together in War. This has been the biggest anticipation which automatically becomes a huge pressure for the people to deliver a cracking song that should become an anthem!”
He adds, “Firstly, we had to actually get the track right, get the track that actually justifies them dancing on it together. Hrithik and Tiger have had very, very good songs and big hit songs to their credit. Now, we are bringing them together for the first time and so we have all the more responsibility to deliver a song that should become a blockbuster instantly. I told Vishal and Shekhar that this is not just a song, this is a responsibility. I think it’s the blessings of God and the blessings of all the fans of Hrithik and Tiger that we have been able to create a track, which is truly an anthem. You have to hear it to understand it!”
Jai Jai Shivshankar was shot on a scale that no Bollywood song has been ever shot before, “After we got the right track that had this kind of groove and beat which is so big, we couldn’t have shot it in any lesser way than we actually did,” Siddharth says. The song featuring over 500 dancers was conceptualised by choreographers Bosco and Caesar for more than a month before it was brought to Hrithik and Tiger.
Siddharth says Hrithik and Tiger rehearsed for 3 weeks to make this song a visual spectacle for audiences. He adds, “This is a Holi song in the film and what actually got me excited about the song was its lyrics. It says ‘Jai Jai Shivshankar, Aaj mood hai Bhayankar’. When you see this song, you will get into a bhayankar mood to dance, you will just freak out and that is the killer part of it.”
