Jacqueline to shake a leg for Ek do teen in Baaghi 2
The actor will be seen dancing to the tune ofMadhuri Dixit's yesteryear hit
Jacqueline Fernandez will recreate veteran actor Madhuri Dixit's foot-tapping Ek do teen number from the 1988 film Tezaab for Baaghi 2.
Choreographers Saroj Khan, Ganesh Acharya and Ahmed Khan have been roped in to compose the steps for this peppy number.
Ahmed, the director, said in a statement: "There will be three choreographers on the set. It's an all-time favourite and I have asked Ganesh to retain Sarojji's famous hook steps and Manish Malhotra to keep Madhuri Dixit's pink outfit in mind while designing Jacqueline's costume."
Ek do teen was originally choreographed by the veteran Saroj Khan.
Ahmed has earlier worked with Jacqueline on numbers like Chittiyan kalaiyan, Lat lag gayee and Jumme ki raat. He says he wants the same vibe for the recreated version. "I want the feel of the earlier song that still looms large on everyone's mind and also the same vibe, with the crowds chanting 'Mohini, Mohini' as Madhuri takes the stage," he said.
While expressing his thoughts on Jacqueline slipping into Madhuri's shoes, Ahmed said: "She's the perfect choice."
Baaghi 2, starring Tiger Shroff, is the sequel to the 2016 film Baaghi. The film, which also stars Disha Patani, is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment banner and is presented by Fox Star Studios. It will release on March 30.
