Mumbai, Nov 18: The young heartthrobs Neil Nitin Mukesh and Ranbir Kapoor knocked on Bollywood’s door around the same time with their debut flicks Johnny Gaddaar and Saawariya . And we find the two entering into a neck to neck competition, yet again.
In the very second film, Ranbir got the chance to be super hot Bipasha Basu’s Lucky Boy in Bachna Ae Haseeno and Neil too has ended up with the same luck. He will be romancing the delicious Bong babe in his second movie directed by debutant director Jehangir Surti.
The movie was initially named Freeze but has been now titled Aa Dekhen Zara . Now if that rings a bell, let us take you back to the 1981 movie Rocky where a young Sanjay Dutt shook a leg with Reena Roy on the song Aa Dekhen Zara challenging their competitors Shakti Kapoor and Tina Munim. Here again, it makes for an interesting coincidence that the second films of both Neil and Ranbir derives title from yesteryear hit songs.
Neil, who had no dance sequence in Johnny Gaddaar , surprised everyone with his dancing skills at last year’s Filmfare Awards when he synched his steps to the song Move Your Body . And now the actor is ready to bring that visual treat again for his audience through a power packed dance performance in the film. And the song is none other than a remixed version of the old hit; a la Ranbir Kapoor who danced a thunder on the remixed version of Bachna Ae Haseeno .
With Aa Dekhen Zara we wonder if Neil is trying to send a message across to his contemporaries. But it’s only after we see his act on screen that we will decide Kis Mein Kitna Hai Dum .
