Making of Kaminey's 'Dhan Te Nan'


The Dhan te nan song from Kaminey , which is high on the popularity charts currently, owes its success to Vishal Bharadwaj, Shahid Kapoor and choreographer Ahmed Khan. The song, a disco number that has been picturised on Shahid and theatre actor Chandan Sanyal, hasnt been choreographed. The actors have come up with their own moves for the song. Ahmed confirmed the news and said, We wanted to shoot this high energy song in a different way, very unlike a typical disco number. I have earlier choreographed the songs Kallu mama and Sapne mein milti hai in Satya, which Vishal had written. There were no rehearsed moves and the actors were free to interpret it, keeping the mood of the song in mind. We felt the same would work with Dhan te nan. The song has the actors doing their own thing except one choreographed move, where Shahid shouts at the top of his voice saying, Dhan te nan. Director Vishal Bharadwaj was only too happy to go along with the idea of spontaneity. He elaborated, Yes, we decided to capture the spontaneity that we saw in Kallu mama and Kudi mere sapne mein milti hai. However, I wanted one signature step from Ahmed. The move was like the fight scene between the hero and villain, straight out of the 1970s and 1980s. It involves punching the air and I loved it. The song has a retro feel and has been picturised in a pub where Shahid and Chandan lip-sync the song being played in the background. The song was shot over three days in Mumbai.
