The popular "Yeh Ishq" song from Imtiaz Ali's Jab We
Met, currently being aired on television, was much fun
shooting, thanks to the more than 180 dancers who were roped in
from different parts of Himachal Pradesh to match steps with
Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor. Karishma Kapoor and her daughter
Samaira has also dropped in on the sets of the song in the
beautiful town of Manali to meet Kareena.
"We had local troupes from Tibet, Chamba, Bilaspur, Kinnor,
Dharamshala, Hamirpur and Kullu," says director Imtiaz. Veteran
choreographer Saroj Khan was so impressed with their style of
dancing that she distributed chocolates to all of them as a token
of her love and appreciation. Her favorite was the troupe from
Tibet and she adjudicated them winner.
So now you know what made the dancers smile so much as they
danced with the film's lead pair. The Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision
Ltd production releases on October 26.
