Watch: Imtiaz Ali turns choreographer for Sarphiri, new Laila Majnu song featuring Tripti Dimri, Avinash Tiwary
Imitaz Ali choreographed Laila Majnu's song titled 'Sarphiri,' picturised on newcomers Tripti Dimri and Avinash Tiwary.
The latest song from Laila Majnu, 'Sarphiri' marks Imtiaz Ali's debut as a choreographer. Shot in Kashmir, it is picturised on newcomers Tripti Dimri and Avinash Tiwary. Sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Babul Supriyo, composed by Niladri Kumar, it talks about young love, falling in sync with the movie theme. Interestingly, the leads aren't seen dancing but Ali takes the viewers on a small tour of the breathtaking scenic beauty.
Imtiaz Ali recently opened up why he had no intention to make Laila Majnu when he wrote the story and giving his brother Sajid Ali a chance for a directorial debut. The Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani filmmaker also confessed that he's not a dancer but he is good with picturization and would end up charging his clients lesser than Bosco Martis, if others hired him, reports Mumbai Mirror.
"Since a lot of my choreographer friends are threatening me by turning directors, I deemed it fit to threaten them by choreographing a song," says Imtiaz Ali.
Imitiaz had also shared that one of the difficult things about the film was deciding its title, according to The Indian Express. "I always knew that Laila Majnu is the only title that this film could go by. The star, the plot of the film is Laila Majnu. We have known the legendary lovers for years and years before any one of our names were known," the filmmaker had shared.
He also revealed that the process of naming the film was easier once he purchased the title rights from filmmaker Ramesh Taurani. Laila Majnu is slated to release on 7 September.
