Ranveer and Anushka dancing in Pehli Baar

By a Staff Writer

Fans of Dil Dhadakne Do have another reason to celebrate as Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma will be seen choreographing their own dance moves for an upcoming song in the movie. The peppy, Punjabi dance number is called Pehli Baar and has been sung by Sukriti Kakkar and Siddharth Mahadevan. This is the third song released from the film, the first one being the title track sung by Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar and the second Gallan Goodiyaan.

Within hours of its release, #PehliBaarOutNow began trending on Twitter. While Anushka, who plays a dancer in the movie, described Pehli Baar as a crazy fun song”, Ranveer, who plays the role of Kabir Mehra, took to the microblogging site to say: My fav song from DilDhadakneDo  releases tomorrow morning! PehliBaar …Let’s chat about it later tomorrow after you’ve seen it….around 2pm.”

Even Priyanka Chopra, who co-stars as Kabir Mehra’s sister Ayesha, couldn’t resist and tweeted that Anushka and Ranveer were “just killing it” in the song.

Dressed in casuals, Ranveer and Anushka look natural in the song and seem to be enjoying a great on-screen chemistry. Before working on their steps, the actors took a brief from the movie’s director, Zoya Akhtar, and the famous choreographer duo Bosco-Caesar.

The idea to make Anushka and Ranveer dance to their own steps was originally by Zoya, who wanted to capture the song in a fluid way where they are both seen as having fun. Both Ranveer and Anushka are considered good dancers and Zoya wanted them to follow their own dancing instincts for the song.

The team took just around an hour to decide and choreograph the steps, following which they started shooting. The song had some sequences of jiving, which Ranveer and Anushka kept improvising upon during the shoot. The final song looks natural and effortless, just like it was meant to be.

About the Film

Dil Dhadakne Do narrates the story of Kamal Mehra (Anil Kapoor) and his wife Neelam (Shefali Shah), one of the most popular couples in Delhi society, who decide to celebrate their forthcoming 30th wedding anniversary by planning a lavish 10–day cruise of Europe for their closest family and friends.

Once on the ship, their picture-perfect lives start to unravel. Kamal is heading for bankruptcy and he and wife Neelam cannot tolerate being around each other. Their business savvy daughter, Ayesha (Priyanka Chopra) is sick of her marriage and wants a divorce, which leads to tensions with her husband and in-laws, who have also come along on the cruise.

Completing the familial plotline is son Kabir (Ranveer Singh), who is slated to take over the family business and hopefully save the company by marrying the only daughter of the wealthy Sood family; but ever the dreamer, Kabir starts to have other ideas. He falls in love with an entertainer onboard the ship and realizes he is not cut out for business after all.

Will the Mehra’s socially sink?  How will they be able to confront the society that is so fake and judgmental?  How will they swim to shore and survive as a happy family? ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ will have all the answers.

Dil Dhadakne Do is presented by Junglee Pictures and Excel Entertainment, and produced by Excel Entertainment. The film is set to release internationally on 5th June 2015.
