Fresh from covering the July edition of Vogue India, Jacqueline Fernandez is the centre piece of Bangistan’s new song release Ishq Karenge. The track sees Jacqueline Fernandez and Bangistan’s two lead actors Riteish Deshmukh and Pulkit Samrat embrace six different cultural dances: African, Arabian Belly dancing, Shaolin Freestyle, Russian folk, as well as South Indian classical dances Kathakali and Bharatnatyam.
Based on a concept by director Karan Anshuman, choreographer Rajeev Surti brought together elements of dance from these cultures seamlessly in the video.
The song is composed by Ram Sampath and lyrics by Puneet Krishna. Singers Abhishek Nailwal, Sona Mohapatra and famed qawwali singer Shadab Faridi lend their vocals to this eclectic track.
Production Designers Aditya Kanwar and Mukund Gupta created a variety of sets that perfectly reflected each culture, while Costume Designer Ameira Punvani’s diverse assortment of outfits embellished the overall experience, as Jacqueline, Riteish and Pulkit showed off iconic hook steps from across the world.
This summer, audiences will be entertained and educated in equal measure as the hysterically funny ‘Bangistan’ comes to cinema screens internationally on 31st July 2015. ‘Bangistan’ is presented by Junglee Pictures and Excel Entertainment, and produced by Excel Entertainment.
