Street dancers Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor arrive in Delhi for the release of the song 'Illegal Weapon 2.0'
After arriving in an open bus for the release of the trailer for his next movie ' Street dancer 3D 'in Mumbai, Varun Dhawan & Shraddha Kapoor reached Delhi on Saturday for the song launch of 'Illegal Weapon 2.0' from their film. The H-block of Connaught Place was chock-a-block with fans waiting on the road, rooftop of restaurants & stores for the actors to reach a cinema hall. And as soon as the actors reached the road leading to the venue, their entry in an open sunroof car made their fans go crazy with people clicking selfies, photos & making videos of the actors. Before Varun & Shraddha went inside for the song launch, they surprised their fans by dancing on 'Muqabla' with a dance group outside the theatre. "What's up, Delhi? I was in Switzerland for New Year's & the people over there were very sweet but mujhe lagta hai Dilli se zyada achhe log kahin nahi hai, Varun told his fans.
It feels good to be back in Delhi as it is my second home: Shraddha Kapoor
In an interaction with the media, the actors released the song, which is the recreated version of Jasmine Sandlas & Garry sandhu 's 'Illegal Weapon'. The recreated version is also sung by Jasmine & Garry which is used as Shraddha's introduction in the film. "This is our first battle in the film. In real life, we are very good friends & I think on the big screen, we were able to show that attitude & I hope it is looking nice. Since this song is already a hit, we knew it would be a challenge for us to match the visuals. I hope our choreographers - Kruti Mahesh & Rahul Shetty - are happy with our performance," said Shraddha & added, "It always feels good to be back home in Delhi because it is my second home."
While for Varun, this song was one of the reasons to do this film. "When the film was offered to me, the producers of the film had made me listen to four songs from the film & one of them was this one. Toh maine kaha ki ye gaana toh principal kisi aur hero ya heroine ko nahi from sakta I really like Jasmine Sandlas & Garry sandhu 's voice. When we were shooting this song, our teams were actually fighting with each other. My team members from the film like Raghav & Dharmesh were telling me, 'Inhe itne pain pain Steps Kyun Diye? & I was like smoke paper alag hai iss song mein ' pero todos se burlaban unos de otros ya que era una batalla de baile, pero Shraddha casi me patea el culo en la song , compartió Varun.
Shraddha asked for 36 shots in Muqabala ?
The actors who will also be seen in the recreated version of 'Mukkala Mukkabala', shared that they were completely blown away by Prabhudeva's dance moves in the song. "I think when the song came, all the kids from that generation had tried to copy those steps & I was definitely one of them," said Shraddha, while Varun shared an interesting detail while filming the recreated version."We were putting so much energy in the recreated version of the song but if you look at Prabhudeva sir, he was very easily doing it. And he told me, 'Easy, easy', cool, cool, why so much'. But he has given us so much love. Shraddha ne unse iss gaane mein 36 shots karaye hain ek step ke liye, laughed.
Bohot takes hain, 36 ka pata nahi. I have a very small part in this song & when you are dancing with Prabhudeva sir, then you have to give your best," replied Shraddha to Varun's claims.
I hope to do more content-oriented films in this decade: Varun Dhawan
Sharing the kind of movies that he wishes to do in 2020 & the next decade, Varun said, "I think the next decade is very important for me. I am hoping to do more content- oriented films, films that are VFX driven & which push the boundaries of normal cinema viewing," he said while Shraddha added, "I wish that a dance film like this would be offered to me well in advance. Last minute na ho kyunki by the end of this film, I was left with two sprained ankles, my shoulders, neck was completely gone & we had a physio on set everyday. It was very challenging to prepare for this film but it was a lot of fun nonetheless"
