Vaani Kapoor Suffered Cuts and Bruises While Rehearsing for War Song, Ghungroo
Vaani Kapoor said that the performance with Hrithik Roshan was physically challenging as she was required to dance on an aerial rotating pole
Bollywood seems to be going crazy over the news of Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff coming together for the first time in a film. The two exceptional dancers will be sharing space in Siddharth Anand's directorial called War. Hrithik and Tiger will be pitted against each other in the action thriller which also stars Vaani Kapoor as the female lead. While the trailer of the film impressed crowds, it was the latest song from the film Ghungroo that has got people grooving. Paired up with Hrithik on screen, the two set the temperature soaring with their moves. But all was not easy. Vaani had to go through extreme physical challenges to perfect her performance in Ghungroo, hurting herself in the process.
In a recent interview, Vaani shared, "It was physically demanding and extremely challenging with swing pole and Cyr wheel section of the dance. But all the sweat and bruises were definitely worth it as it gave me the opportunity to pull off something entirely new. My body endured a lot during rehearsals and the shoot." However, she added that she was super happy with her performance and that people are showing a lot of love to the song. But it did take her a lot of time to perfect her moves.
Choreographer Tushar Kalia revealed that it took Vaani 3 months to perfect the aerial rotating pole technique and she was injured several times while rehearsing. He said, "It's one of the most difficult songs I have ever choreographed. For the first time ever, an actress was attempting a routine that involves Cyr wheel and aerial rotating pole and both are very difficult routines to pull off, even if you are a brilliant dancer." He explained that Vaani wanted to do everything on her own and dodged the idea of having a body double. "She got so many bruises, fell many times but she never gave up," concluded Tushar complimenting Vaani's dedication and hard work.
