Ranveer Singh is commemorating 5 years of his movie Dil Dhadakne Do today. The actor posted a throwback selfie on Instagram to celebrate the big day. The selfie shared by the actor has Ranveer in his film’s appearance in which he donned the role of a carefree, rich bachelor named Kabir Mehra.
While posting the image, Ranveer penned, “5 years of #DilDhadakneDo” in the caption. Film’s Director Zoya Akhtar shared her comment on the post, “Take me back.” Choreographer Bosco Martis, who worked hard for Gallan Goodiyan in the film, stated, “@ranveersingh Yes yes totally agree with @zoieakhtar.”
Zoya posted the pic of the movie DVD in her Instagram stories and penned, “5 years today. Here’s to the best cast and crew ever.”
Dil Dhadakne Do centres around the tale of the Mehras, a dysfunctional Punjabi family, who call their family and friends on a cruise journey to rejoice the parents’ 30th marriage anniversary. The movie featured a huge star cast comprising Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra, Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Farhan Akhtar, Rahul Bose and Vikrant Massey. Aamir Khan did the voice-over for the family dog Pluto as he shared the tale of the Mehras.
While discussing how he got to voice the bull-mastiff in the movie, Aamir shared a few years back, “I got a call a few weeks ago, and she asked me to see the film. I saw it and, of course, Pluto was also there in the film. His voice was given by Javed Akhtar saab (who has penned Pluto’s lines) at that time. When the film got over, Zoya asked me what I thought of it. I told her that I loved it, and it was really amazing, and that I laughed and cried through it. I loved every character, it was well-written and every actor has performed well.”
“When I told her I loved it, Zoya said, ‘Listen, I want you to play Pluto’. I was a bit surprised … because I thought Javed sir had done a great job. But I said ‘okay’. I had loved the film so much that I was just happy to be a part of it … I think it is a great film to be part of. So, I didn’t even think twice. And I said, ‘Sure, I will do it’. And two days later, I was dubbing for it. That was it.”
In a recent media talk, Zoya had shared about this, “He (Aamir) was, like, after these many years, you have offered me the voice of a dog? I said, please do it. He was, like, yeah, totally! And he just came [on-board], like a sweetheart. It was great!”
Anil and Shefali donned the imperfect Mehra pair with PeeCee and Ranveer in the characters of their two children. Anushka donned the role of a dancer who gets smitten towards Ranveer. Rahul played the part of Priyanka’s spouse in the film.
The party number Gallan Goodiyan got filmed in just one take and featured the whole cast dancing to the music. The 4.48 minute number got filmed in just five minutes but the preparation for the same took a few days.
