Nargis Fakhri learns lavani for Banjo


Nargis Fakhri, who is playing a New York-based DJ in her upcoming musical drama ‘Banjo’, will be seen in sporting a nauvari and performing a traditional Maharashtrian dance, lavani in the recently launched song, Udanchoo.

Since this is Nargis’ maiden attempt at a traditional dance performance, she had to prepare a lot for it. “It was quite challenging yet interesting, since the dance involves different body movements and striking expressions. I had to learn the steps and nuances correctly,” says the actor.

Banjo, produced by Eros International, directed by Ravi Jadhav, starring Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri, releases 23rd September. The music is composed by Vishal-Shekhar and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Udanchoo has been sung by Hriday Gattani.
