Riteish Deshmukh's appearance is a bonus addition to the track.
Marathi song ‘Dhagala Lagli Kala’ to be recreated in Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl

The trend of remaking old classic songs will be continued with the Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha-starrer Dream Girl (2019). However, there is a slight change as the makers are recreating an old Marathi song. The two leads will be seen shaking a leg to Dada Kondke’s number ‘Dhagala Lagli Kala.’
To make the song more interesting, Riteish Deshmukh is also included in a guest appearance in the song. Speaking about the song to the publication Mumbai Mirror, he said, “‘Dhagala’ is an all-time favourite dance number. The original featured the legendary Dada Kondke, so being a part of this song was motivation enough. Also, Ayushmann and Nushrat are fantastic actors and dancers and having admired their work I was happy to share the screen with them.”
The song was filmed recently with the three actors. Jyotica Tangri has sung the Marathi parts of the song while the Hindi parts are sung by Meet Bros, who have also composed the music. Ganesh Acharya has choreographed the number.
Director Raaj Shandilyaa told Mumbai Mirror about getting Deshmukh on board, “I had done chat show Yaaron Ki Baraat with Riteish. We have known each other for a long time. When I made this request, he immediately agreed.”
Dream Girl will be releasing on 13 September. Watch the original below from the Marathi film Bot Lavin Tithe Gudgulya (1978).
