Shehnaaz Gill has continued to make headlines long after the latest season of Bigg Boss ended. She got recognition and fame from the show and won many hearts. Gill is lately gearing up to release her upcoming song titled ‘Kurta Pyjama’ with celebrated hit-maker Tony Kakkar.

The song is set to release super soon and has been directed by Rahul Shetty, who is known to be an excellent choreographer. His previous work includes Race 3, Baghi 2, Housefull 4, ABCD series, songs from Street Dancer 3D and so on.

Rahul talked about his experience directing the upcoming song and he revealed, “Well, the feeling is amazing because I was living with the thought that I won’t be able to shoot this year because of the current scenario but I am so glad I got to direct this song in this phase of lockdown with so many limitations, less manpower, less equipment and less time. We shot this in almost 6-8 hours.”

About the song, Shetty said to a publication, “Without any thought, I said yes becauseĀ  I loved the title ‘Kurta Pajama’. It is such a simple hook yet so catchy it is. First time I got to hear this track, I was glued to it. The moment I heard the song I was humming it already. This how I landed directing this amazing tune. The flavour of this song is a very new age and also choreography wise I have not over choreographed it but went with the flow of the song with just one simple hook-step in which all can groove to it.”

On his experience with working with Shehnaaz Gill for the first time, the choreographer said, “Shehnaaz, this girl is an energy bomb. The first time l met her, she quietly came to my studio but with time she exploded with her infectious energy and we were just laughing all the time. She is always so excited about doing different things and very eager to work with her honesty. But beware, she looks cute in person but the moment she is in front of the camera she will blow your mind with her beauty and charm!”

Rahul has already worked with Tony in the past and he was all praises for the singer, he said, “Tony Kakkar, the multi-faceted music composer whose songs are so trendy and super hits, the louder his work speaks exactly the opposite he is very shy and reserved as a person. But that is what makes him special and different. You will see him move and groove in ‘Kurta Pajama’.”
