Bollywood director Abbas Tyrewala’s latest film 1-800 Love, which has been reportedly rechristened to Call Me Dil, will make the hot hunk John Abraham dance to the tunes of ‘dandiya’. The movie stars Abbas’ wife Pakhi opposite John.
Initially, the director recorded another song with music maestro A.R. Rahman to picturise on the lead pair. Later, the decision was changed keeping the Dussehra festival in mind, which falls just two days after the release date of the film. The movie is slated to hit the theaters during ‘Navratri’ on October 15 and Dussehra falls on October 17.
Now, Tyrewala has recorded a ‘dandiya’ track with Rahman again just after the composer’s return from the US tour.
And keeping the festival in mind, the director has just wrapped up the film’s shoot with a pacy dandiya track. The lead pair John and Pakhi shot the dance sequence with other cast members, which was choreographed by Ahmed Khan.
Producer Madhu Mantena informed, “Since we decided to release the movie on October 15, which is very close to Dussehra, Abbas thought a dandiya track would be more suitable”.
The earlier recorded song would not be included in the album. He added, “We cannot afford to waste a Rahman song. When we have not used it in the movie, we won’t include it in the album”.
