Actress Chitrangada Singh’s first item song in Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Joker’ bears a resemblance with Madhuri Dixit’s famous song ‘Humko Aaj Kal Hai’.
Even though the actress admitted that there is a resemblance between the two tracks, she said that she hasn’t tried to copy Madhuri Dixit or her steps.
“I remember when Farah Khan offered me 'Kaaffirana'... I had asked her what the song is all about, the concept and what look will I have. She just told me it will be kind of similar to Madhuri's look in 'Humko Aaj Kal Hai'. She had said we will try and get the same look,” she said.
She added that it was impossible to outdo Madhuri.
“But then that is Madhuri -- you can't do a Madhuri. You can only try, so we have tried to something like that,” she said.
While Madhuri Dixit’s number was choreographed by Saroj Khan, Chitrangada Singh’s is choreographed by Farah Khan.
“The hair style and the clothes for this song are somewhat similar to 'Humko Aaj Kal Hai'. I had a great time dancing but unfortunately I did not get much time to rehearse. We did as much as we could. I must say it is choreographed beautifully by Farah,” she said.
Other than the item song, the actress has two movies ‘I Me Aur Main' opposite John Abraham, and 'Kaam' with Arjun Rampal in her kitty.
“We finished shooting for 'Kaam', it is a love story. It is set against the backdrop of sexual exploitation. The movie is set in an ad agency,” she concluded.
