Prabhudheva, Shahid to dance to 'Gandi baat'

New Delhi, June 25 (IANS) This one's likely to be a visual delight - dancing ace Prabhudheva and actor Shahid Kapoor will groove together for the first time for "Rambo Rajkumar" in a song called "Gandi baat". They are excited.

Prabhudheva, who is directing the movie, said he is very "excited" to perform alongside Shahid, who in his opinion is one of Bollywood's most talented performers.

"I'm very excited about the song and Shahid and I are already rehearsing for it. It's a fun and peppy track," he said in a statement.

Shahid said he is "really looking forward to doing a full dance song with Prabhu sir. His style is very new for me, so it's a challenge. But I am loving it!"

The song, composed by Pritam, will be shot in a bar setting. Rehearsals for the number are in process.

Producer Viki Rajani says: "'Gandi baat' will be well remembered as we have two of the biggest and best dancers matching steps to a peppy track for the very first time."

The song is "high on tempo" keeping in mind the energy that Prabhudheva and Shahid are capable of, Pritam said in a statement. He is "extremely confident that they will take 'Gandi baat' notches higher".

The movie will hit screens Nov 29.

No high heels, Tanuj Virwani tells co-star

Neha Hinge has been a Miss India contestant, and it is given that she is tall and slender. Tanuj Virwani, her co-star in the film "Luv U Soniyo", has banned her from wearing high heels.

Neha is 5 feet 10 inches tall, and Tanuj, who is actress Rati Agnihotri's son, is just two inches taller to her. He made sure Neha didn't wear any heels while they were shooting a sequence together.

Initially, the model-actress is said to have been upset as she loves to wear heels and cannot imagine moving about without them, but then she was okay with it.

"When I wear heels it makes me taller than Tanuj. Plus, I am lean, which already makes me look quite tall, so it's okay. I understand," said Neha.

Distributed by Viacom 18 Media Pvt Ltd, directed by Joe Rajan and produced by Harvey India Productions and Odyssey Corporation India Limited, "Luv U Soniyo" will release July 26.
