Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha feature in the video for the re-created ‘Mungda’ from Total Dhamaal
Sonakshi Sinha recreates Helen’s iconic track ‘Mungda’ for Indra Kumar’s upcoming film, Total Dhamaal and will be seen dancing opposite Ajay Devgn.
Kookie Gulati who directed Mungda shares, “For a particular situation in the film, we needed a young & energetic song to keep with the pace of the film. That’s when the idea of ‘Mungda’ came into place. When we heard the re-created version by Gourov – Roshin, we wanted someone who could match up the beats of the song! We immediately thought of Sonakshi Sinha – she has a unique & an amazing blend to reach the youth as well as the masses. I can tell you, Sonakshi Sinha fits this song perfectly. She is a great dancer with a very expressive face. We got Adil Shaikh to do the choreography and he’s killed it! Mohit Rai helped putting her look together, Durga Prasad built the set and was shot by ace DOP Keiko Nakahara. We are keeping the energy of the old track but taking it to the next level in scale and look. It was incredible that Indra Kumar, Ajay Devgn & Ashok Thakeria had faith in me and trusted me with this huge responsibility! I think we had a dream team and the results are there for everyone to see.”
Sonakshi Sinha shares, “It was great reuniting with Ajay sir after Son Of Sardaar on this song and this film. I have really enjoyed the Dhamaal franchise and was thrilled when they asked me to be a part of it! The entire song shoot went off fantastically and was super fun!”>
