She enjoyed the steps and also helped Randeep Hooda to pick up the steps as he is not a great dancer and is dancing in a song for the first time. “She picked up all the steps pretty soon and enjoyed doing them.

Between cuts she also used to suggest some innovative steps and also made the director and crew to dance on the song! She has always lit up everyone’s mood whenever she comes on set and we all enjoy shooting with her” says a source from the set. Talking about it, the lovely Richa added” I have always loved dancing be it any form of it, but being a Punjabi bhangra & Gida tends to be my favourite.

When I heard the song for the first time I was quite excited as I found it to be very peppy and fun, therefore was looking forward for it’s shoot. At the time of shooting the song, the set up, the atmosphere was so lively that I got into the feel and tried my own steps in between. The choreographer really liked it and included it in the dance. The song is so catchy that in no time the entire set became like a dance floor for everyone.”
