Asim Riaz of Bigg Boss 13 fame is all set to share screen space with actor Jacqueline Fernandez in a remix of the song Mere Angne Mein from Laawaris (1981), which featured Amitabh Bachchan. The new music video is scheduled to be released on 7 March.
The duo were seen in a video which was shot in a vanity van. While Asim looked dapper in a white shirt and formal trousers, Jacqueline can be seen in a lehenga-choli. Jacqueline can be heard saying “We’re gonna have a really fun Holi song !”. Watch the video below:
Asim will also feature with former Bigg Boss 13 contestant and girlfriend Himanshi Khurana, in Bohemia’s song next.
The song will be remixed by Tanishk Bagchi and Neha Kakkar will lend her voice to it. Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru will direct the video, which is being produced by T-Series.
On 26 February, Jacqueline uploaded a boomerang video on her Instagram account, where she is seen posing with Asim during their dance rehearsals in a studio.
“It is a traditional folk song but Tanishk (Bagchi, composer) has modernised it, giving it his own unique twist. I have always enjoyed folk songs and want the younger generations to get familiar with them,” Bhushan Kumar told Mumbai Mirror, as he commented on the song.
In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Jacqueline spoke about the choreography and the story of the video.
"“It has been turned into a peppy track through which we will be narrating an engaging story. Shabina Khan, who is choreographing it, has given me some desi steps and traditional moves but at the same time it will be modern, too.”" - Jacqueline Fernandez
Jacqueline had last featured in the single, ‘GF BF’, alongside Sooraj Pancholi. Released in 2016, the song has amassed more than 195 million views on YouTube.
She also told the publication about the process of working with her choreographer. “Shabina has been helping me perfect my moves and expressions. We have been rehearsing diligently to get every nuance right and I’m really looking forward to working with Asim for the first time. It’s a passion project for me.”
