‘Jee Karda‘ seems to be playing all over the place and the youngster, who was once dancing to the tune of ‘Saturday Saturday‘, ‘Tera Hero Idhar Hai‘ and ‘Radha‘ not too long ago, has moved onto more different genres. For Varun Dhawan, this is a break from all the fun and frolic as he he takes on his next role in Badlapur which requires him to demonstrate pathos. According to the actor, all of this became possible as a result of one major decision that the team took – which was to film the song after the principle shooting was through. This way, Varun could pretty much feel the pain that he had accumulated over the last few months while living and breathing as Raghu.
Varun gave us new insight on the making:
Absolutely. It was a given, I had to seep in Raghu’s pain before I stepped into the part. This one is not a song and dance film where one can step in and out of a situation, do a lighthearted number or a dance track, and then get back into the mood of the situation. One has to go through the agony of the character and mentally as well as physically feel the pain. When I readied myself to shoot ‘Jee Karda’, I understood Raghu, I felt his pain, I could literally get into his shoes. It wasn’t easy to dance, emote and express myself in such an aggressive and vigorous manner.
When asked what made it possible, Varun added:
Well, so much went into that actually. We took a whole lot of time to conceptualize the video. The entire flow of it all had to be designed meticulously as the story was being told through ‘Jee Karda’. It was the summarisation of everything that happens to me, Sriram Raghavan did well in bringing on Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi and Yami Gautam so perfectly into the video. If you look at them all, Huma looks beautiful, Nawaz brings out his evil laughter while Yami is sheer purity. As for me, I had to demonstrate pain through my body language and facial expressions. My dad loves it.
We certainly love it, and we’re sure you guys will love it too!
