Sanjay Dutt who was shooting in the neighborhood came especially on the sets to watch Devgn dance on the song 'Taki o Taki Re'which was being shot. When asked Dutt about his visit to the sets of Himmatwala, he said, "Ajay and I are like brothers..and since I was shooting for Policegiri in Ramoji Rao, I took some time off from the shoot especially because I wanted to watch Ajay dance for 'Taki O Taki (laughing).."
‘Taki O Taki Re’ is choreographed by Farah Khan and Devgn shot a part of the sequence of the song with his leading lady of the film Tamannaah in Jaipur.A source close to the team said, “It’s a very 80’s dance number and Ajay was seen quite comfortable with the steps. He has his own style of dancing and has given the ditty his best. We are sure that Ajay’s dancing will leave all of us thrilled.”
Sajid Khan is all set to make you groove to the 80’s style in his disco song ‘Thank God It’s Friday’ which has Sonakshi Sinha in a vintage sequined golden dress and headband which strikingly resembles Parveen Babi’s look in the song ‘Pyaar Karne Wale’ from the film Shaan. And the other look where she is wearing Black tight pants, jacket and boots is inspired from Sridevi’s disco look from Chaalbaaz.
The Mahurat shot had Ajay Devgn delivering the very famous power packed dialogue “Na main dilliwala, na mein CBI wala, ek behen ka bhai hu, ek maa ka beta..Himmatwala!..” Zareena Wahab & Leena Jumani who play Devgn’s mother and sister respectively along with Mahesh Manjrekar were also a part of the scene.
“Sajid wanted everything to go perfect in the very first take as he is a little superstitious about the Mahurat shot and wanted to incorporate it in the film as it is without any edits or retakes. And much to everyone’s excitement, everything went off as it was planned as this was the 1st time that a Mahurat Shot was broadcasted live on such a humongous platform” quipped a source on the sets.
Ajay Devgn, Director Sajid Khan, Producer Vashu Bhagnani, Disney UTV's Sidharth Roy Kapur, Music Directors Sajid Wajid, Singer Mika and Lyricist Sameer were all present to witness the occasion.
