Shahid Kapoor, who is gearing up for the release of his next film, Batti Gul Meter Chalu, is also busy shooting the video for a revamped version of Urvashi, produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar. The video of the recreated version of the chartbuster from the 1994 Prabhudheva-Nagma-starrer, Kadhalan, also features Kiara Advani and is currently being shot by director Gifty in Mumbai. The new version is written and sung by Yo Yo Honey Singh.

“We’ve changed the lyrics, but the hook line remains the same. The song, however, doesn’t showcase a love story but a new-age relationship between Shahid and Kiara. Even the choreography is contemporary. We are shooting on a club set in Film City. We also filmed in a parking lot on Sunday to give the video an underground kind of a feel,” says choreographer Sanjay Shetty, adding that Shahid is “super excited and looks like a rockstar” and that Kiara is a “fab dancer.”

Kiara admits that although she was excited about featuring in the super hit number, she was nervous too. “When a classic song is recreated, there will be comparisons. This could be my ode to Prabhu sir, I am a huge fan of his,” says the actor, adding that she has grown up listening to the original Urvashi. She is also all praise for her co-star. “We all know Shahid is a great dancer, so I was nervous about matching up to his skills. But he was super fun to work with. We were in sync from the word go.”

Producer Bhushan Kumar says, “The original with Prabhudheva was an iconic chartbuster composed by AR Rahman. Yo Yo Honey Singh has recreated this version and we are rekindling the onscreen magic with Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani as per the tastes of today’s young generation, who will have a blast dancing to this song when it releases.”
