Tiger Shroff recreates I am a Disco Dancer in new video song
The music video is conceptualised by choreographer Bosco Leslie Martis
Tiger Shroff brings back the Disco-era with a recreation of the iconic Bappi Lahiri’s iconic hit I am a Disco Dancer. The modern version, titled I am a Disco Dancer 2.0, has been produced by composers Salim-Sulaiman and rendered by Benny Dayal. The song was released by music label Saregama today.
The music video is conceptualised by choreographer Bosco Leslie Martis. According to the makers, Tiger was bang in the middle of promotions for his film Baaghi 3, and he could only spare 12 hours to complete the song shoot. The entire team behind the project put in hours of meticulous planning and worked overnight to ensure that even the minutest details were in place on the day of the shoot. Fully aware of Tiger’s dancing prowess, Bosco decided on some elaborate dance moves for the song.
On the day of the shoot, Tiger finished the song within 12 hours. According to a source from the set, the actor hardly took breaks and focused entirely on the choreography, ensuring that the song was completed in line with Bosco’s vision.
Commenting on the same, Tiger said, “I am a Disco Dancer is an iconic song, immortalised on screen by the legendary Mithun sir. The opportunity to pay homage to the disco era and recreate the vibe and verve of the song to a younger audience was too much to let go. Yes, it was a hectic shoot – but it was totally worth it, matching up to the impeccable choreography done by Bosco sir, set to a new sound by stalwarts Salim-Sulaiman. I am excited to share this video with everybody – hoping it gets everybody in the disco groove."
Bosco added, “The entire team put in long hours and worked overnight for days to put all the details in place for a song of such a massive scale. And then we shot it in 12 hours flat, which could be done only with someone as committed and dedicated as Tiger. Tiger, once again you did it bro - tirelessly striving to get the right vibe and moves - it speaks volumes of your dedication. I hope you guys enjoy this song as much as I did creating & shooting it!"
