Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgan, Bipasha Basu, Fardeen Khan and Mugdha Godse have shot for a cricket video wishing the Indian cricket team all the best for the forthcoming Champions Trophy. Ajay is cricket-crazy, has a huge plasma TV installed in his van and watches matches in between shooting. It was his idea to wish the Indian cricket team before they started the Champions Trophy in South Africa, which starts next week.
Says a source, "He told the director Rohit Shetty that Indian cricketers are always been criticised, and we should contribute to encouraging them. Also since his film is called All The Best, they decided to shoot a music video around that. ESPN was very happy with the catchy song and has already started showing it on their channel."
Rohit Shetty says, "We shot the video in Filmistan. It's a special promo on cricket with the stars wearing masks of different cricketers and cheering the cricketers. The song is meant to wish the Indian cricketers before every game. It's an association between the channel and All The Best team. They wanted to me to direct the promo for the Championship Trophy."
Rohit adds, "The cast wishes the cricket team and says 'yeh diwali hogi cupwali' and then they start dancing to the title track." Seema Desai had choreographed the video while Pritam has given the music. All the dancers are wearing the Indian cricket team's outfits. It has been shot against the background of a cricket stadium shot with over 100 dancers.
