As Alia-Varun starrer Badrinath Ki Dulhania is going to hit the theaters on March 10, its catchy song Tamma Tamma has already become the talk of the town. However, veteran choreographer Saroj Khan seems not to be very happy with it. Saroj who has choreographed many hit dance numbers in 90s including Tamma Tamma is not sure if Alia will be able to fill in the shoes of Madhuri Dixit-Nene.
Madhuri, who was in the original version of the song from the movie Thanedar (1990), is considered to be an iconic dancer in Bollywood. As quoted by the entertainment website of leading daily, Saroj Khan said, “Maybe they felt since my assistant Madhuri Dixit was there, they didn’t need me around. You have to ask them why I wasn’t invited. I don’t mind not being invited. The new version of any of my dance numbers have to be of some standard for them to invite me to watch it.”
She added, “I haven’t seen the whole song. I’ve just seen the trailer. And I can not comment. I worked hard because I needed to look after my children. Now my children don’t want me to work. They want me to rest at home. I am happy doing that”.
The new version which also features rapper Badshah has become an instant hit by crossing 28 million views on YouTube within 8 days. A video came out a few days ago, where Varun and Alia were seen learning the signature step of the original song from Madhuri herself.
