After Varun Dhawan honed “The Punjaabban Song” with his father David Dhawan, Ananya Panday kicked off Monday with an energetic number from the upcoming film. Jugjugg Jeeyo. The actress shared a video in which she was seen performing the hook step of a song with Liger star Vijay Deverakonda. “Impressed by this step and the atmosphere of this song,” she wrote as a caption to the video. Ananya and Vijay looked super adorable as they took a step.
The video appeared to have been filmed on the Karan Johar talk show – Koffee With Karan Season 7. Earlier this year, KJo announced that his much-anticipated talk show would be streamed exclusively on Disney + Hotstar. The filmmaker is currently filming for the show. Karan is a producer of Jugjugg Jeeyo as well as Liger.
Jugjugg Jeeyo plays Varuna Dhawana with Ananya Panday, Anil Kapoor and represents the return of Neeta Kapoor to the silver screen. The first song of The Punjaabban Song was drowned in controversy when Pakistani singer Abrar Ul Haq claimed that the filmmakers had “copied” the song.
“I have not sold my song” Nach Punjaban “to any Indian film and I reserve the right to go to court to seek damages. Producers like @karanjohar should not use copying songs. This is my sixth copied song, which will not be allowed at all, “said the tweet. The T-series soon released a statement stating that it had “legally acquired” the rights to the song. Later, a writer named Vishal A Singh claimed that the film’s story was copied from his story, which was sent by Dharma Productions in 2020 in the hopes of working with a production house. However, the production house did not issue any statement.
Liger, on the other hand, refers to Ananya and Vijay’s first pan-Indian film. The film, which also features the legendary Mike Tyson, is directed by Puri Jagannadh. The director also collaborates with Vijay on his next work, Jan Gan Man.
While Jugjugg Jeeyo is scheduled for June 24, Liger is set to hit theaters later this year.
