Imtiaz Ali turns choreographer Laila Majnu

Director Imtiaz Ali has given us some gem of romantic films like ‘Rockstar’, ‘Jab We Met’ and ‘Tamasha’ to name a few. The filmmaker is now all set to treat the audience with a modern take on the epic love story of ‘Laila Majnu‘. However, this time Imtiaz is just presenting the film as his brother Sajid Ali is directing it.


Now, apart from presenting the film, what we hear is that Imtiaz has even choreographed a song in ‘Laila Majnu’. Yes, you read that right, the director has turned a choreographer for brother Sajid’s film. Talking about the same Imtiaz jokingly told 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.”

Imtiaz has choreographed a romantic track ‘Sarphiri’ in the film. Sharing about the song, the filmmaker further told the tabloid, “It’s a slow, lyrical track, perhaps the most beautiful melody in the album. It has been composed by Niladri Kumar, a sitar exponent, who plays with Zakir Hussain, and shot in the living spaces of contemporary Kashmir where we see the girl’s college, the guy’s house, the streets of Srinagar, and all of that.”

So aren’t you guys excited about watching a song choreographed by Imtiaz?

Starring Avinash Tiwari and Tripti Dimri in lead, ‘Laila Majnu’ is all set to hit the silver screens on September 7, 2018.
