Baaghi 2 to feature revamped version of Madhuri Dixit song 'Ek Do Teen' picturised on Jacqueline Fernandez
If you are a 1990s-born kid, there's hardly a chance that you wouldn't have shaken a leg or two on the iconic song 'Ek Do Teen' from Tezaab featuring none other than Madhuri Dixit.
For those who have missed out on that fun, or those who get nostalgic by the tune itself, here's some good news: The dance song is being revamped for the upcoming film Baaghi 2 starring Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani, which is the sequel to the 2016 film Baaghi. The song will be picturised on Jacqueline Fernandez, claim reports.
Film critic and film-trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and posted:
Remember the iconic number from #Tezaab: #EkDoTeen?… Jacqueline Fernandez is all set to step into Madhuri Dixit’s shoes, will appear in the recreated version of the song for #Baaghi2... Stars Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani.

Three choreographers — Saroj Khan, Ganesh Acharya and Ahmed Khan — came together on the set for this.
Ahmed, who is directing the film, said in a statement: "There will be three choreographers on the set... That's a picture perfect moment in itself! It's an all-time favourite and I have asked Ganesh to retain Saroj ji's famous hook steps and Manish Malhotra to keep Madhuri Dixit's pink outfit in mind while designing while designing Jacqueline's costume."
'Ek Do Teen' was originally choreographed by the veteran Saroj Khan.
Ahmed has earlier worked with Jacqueline on numbers like 'Chittiyan Kalaiyan', 'Lat Lag Gayee' and 'Jumme Ki Raat'. He says he wants the same vibe for the recreated version.
"I want the same feel of the earlier song that still looms large on everyone's mind and also the same vibe, with the crowds chanting 'Mohini, Mohini' as Madhuri takes the stage," he said.
While expressing his thoughts on Jacqueline slipping into Madhuri's shoes, Ahmed said: "She's the perfect choice."
The film, which also stars Disha Patani, is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner name Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and presented by Fox Star Studios. It will release on 30 March.
