remake of Marathi blockbuster, Sairaat’s popular track, Zingat is a big USP for
Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s Dhadak. Of course, to deliver something at
par with the original, which has been composed by famous composer duo
Ajay-Atul, was a mammoth task for Karan Johar and co.
No wonder, Johar turned to his dear friend and ace chorographer-turned-director, Farah Khan for laying out the song. But the process was not that simple.
Karan Johar wanted a typical item song feel to it with a big canvas and commercial touch while his director Shashank Khaitan had contrasting ideas about it but what Farah eventually did with it was completely different.
While talking to a leading daily Farah revealed, "Karan said that his director Shashank [Khaitan] was scared to call me, and that he really wants me to do a song for the movie. The minute he said that the song in question is Zingaat, I told him that I won't do it because it's a cult song.”
further said, "Karan said he wanted it to be big and commercial, it has to
be the 'item song' of the movie. On the other hand, the director wanted it to
be natural and earthy,"
Farah further added that she conceptualised it as "a mix of commercial and candid."
Well, just like the janta, even we can’t wait to see what the final product is as Zingat is still a rage.
