Bhankas: Tiger Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor Have Received More Love Than Hate on Twitter

Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor dropped their latest song Bhankas today. The remake of the original Ek Aankh Maru was praised by many but didn’t sit well with Sridevi and Jeetendra fans

The third film in the Baaghi franchise has been much-awaited for reasons more than one. While every movie comes with its fair share of praise and criticism, the fate of the Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer has been no different. While the recently released trailer hit all the right notes in terms of visuals and direction, action hero Tiger was slammed for his stunts bearing similarities to Hollywood star Gal Gadot’s in the hit film Wonder Woman. Just as the hype surrounding the trailer died down, the film’s team has dropped the latest song – Bhankas – which is a remake yet again. It is a reworked version of the original Ek Aankh Maru, which featured Sridevi and Jeetandra shaking a leg in the 1984 film Tohfa.

Surprising, Shraddha and Tiger have churned out an above-par performance, with the duo performing a tapori dance at Riteish Deshmukh and Ankita Lokhande’s wedding. Both stars shared the release on Twitter. Tiger posted, ““Love is in the air and #Bhankas will hit the right chord of your heart. Are you ready for the shaadi madness? Song out today! #Baaghi3 #SajidNadiadwala.” Riteish and Shraddha uploaded the same on their respective handles on the micro-blogging site.

Composed by Bappi Lahiri, the original number was duet by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle. Riteish stars as Tiger’s brother in the film and Shraddha as his love interest. Tiger goes to Syria in an attempt to save his cop brother who has been kidnapped. Slated to release on March 6, the film seems to be worth a watch. However, for now let’s focus on the mixed reactions on social media to Bhankas. While most Twitter users felt Shraddha and Tiger have delivered a noteworthy and power-packed performance, some begged to differ, pointing out a few shortcomings.

Some think it’s a blockbuster song!

“Great recreation, Blockbuster Song,” wrote one user.

Others cannot get over Tiger’s moves or Shraddha’s expressions!

“Very likeable recreation. Tiger Shroff’s dance moves and Shraddha Kapoor’s adorable expressions stand out,” added another. The latter was also praised for her energy level in the single. “Shraddha's expressions in #Bhankas are top notch! I couldn’t take my eyes off her throughout the song. What an energy!” posted one fan, also appreciating her eyes and nose pin in the song’s music video.

Tiger-Shraddha appreciated for doing something different!

“Nice to see Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor in a totally rowdy kind of dance other than their classy dance moves and Tiger's signature dance moves,” read a tweet.

The music of Bhankas has also received a whopping 10/10!

“Yaar kya kamaal gana hai bhai #Bhankas mind-blowing hai kya music hai bhai 10 out of 10. Tiger Shroff aur Shraddha Kapoor ke dance move itne acche hai ohh! Can't wait for this movie to come out,” penned one user.

We agree with the one who said Bhankas is uplifting!

“#Bhankas is such a feel good tune, upbeat that lifts spirits up. You got me going like proper BHANKAAAAAAAAAAS, especially with your moves & grooves dude. You rule! I'm gona prove that I'm bonkers for my Bhankaaaas,” tweeted a user, adding the song has reached 450,000 people within one hour of its release!

But there were some hardcore Sridevi and Jeetandra fans too!

“#Bhankas from Baaghi 3 is addition in the list of Crap Remakes of the year!” read a tweet. Backing it up, another user added, “I’m with you on this one!” And of course, some Bollywood artists were called out once again for lacking originality. “Another bad remix in #bhankas for #Baaghi3 . When albums like

@KabirSinghMovie proved to be chart toppers, why these cheap remixes #Bollywood. Do you really lack originality? Or just some quick bucks.”
