A funky Aamir Khan dancing to the tunes of what can be called a ‘cheap party song’ in Secret Superstar’s Sexy Baliye has created quite a storm in Bollywood. Providing a sneak-peak into Shakti Kumaarr’s world, Aamir Khan and team recently released the behind-the-scene video from the making of this funky song. And it is clear proof of what a splendid job Dangal girl Sanya Malhotra has done at making Aamir dance to her ‘cheap party moves.’
Talking about the song, Sanya says, “This is my first project as a choreographer and I loved making Aamir Khan dance to my tunes.” In the video, we get a glimpse of Sanya doing the hook steps for Aamir and it is plain hilarious to see a 52-year-old Aamir emulate them.
Sharing the video on Twitter, Aamir Khan wrote, “Thank you Mika paaji ! And thank you Sanya! Shakti Kumaarr is incomplete without you.” Throwing more light on the song, director Advait Chandan said,” This is not a song that Insia writes or composes. This is Shakti Kumaarr’s voice. The idea of behind the video is that it is Shakti Kumaarr’s first YouTube video that he dedicates to Secret Superstar.”
Producer Kiran Rao shares her thoughts as well, “Aamir is the item in the song. He is what we call cheap throughout the song and intentionally cheap.” In contradiction to his recent roles, Secret Superstar will see Aamir play a borderline cheap and flirtatious music director who serves as a mentor for his protege Insia (Zaira Wasim). Insia is a Baroda based girl aspiring to be a singer. But due to the resistance she faces from her father, she uploads anonymous videos online wearing a hijab.
Here’s the song Sexy Baliye:
