Choreographer Rahul Shetty turns director for music video of 'Kurta Pajama'

Rahul Shetty is well known for his choreography in Hindi films like ABCD: Anybody Can Dance (2013), Baaghi 2 (2018), Race 3 (2018), Student Of The Year 2 (2019) and Street Dancer 3D (2020). He has now directed his first-ever music video for the Tony Kakkar and Shehnaz Gill single 'Kurta Pajama', as well as choerographed it.
Sharing his experience of shooting a song during the lockdown, Shetty said, “Well, the feeling is really amazing because I was actually living with the thought that I won’t be able to shoot this year because of the current scenario. But I am so glad I got to direct this song in this phase of the lockdown with so many limitations, less manpower, less equipment and less time. We shot this in six to eight hours. I had choreographed one song for Tony Kakkar before. It was a great experience because everyone had to finish their work in just a few hours."
On how the opportunity to direct the number fell into his lap, the choreographer said, "One fine day, I got a call from Tony and Anshul saying they have this song 'Kurta Pajama' and wanted to collaborate on the same. Without thinking, I said yes because I loved the title. It is such a simple hook yet so catchy. The first time I got to hear this track, I was glued to it. The moment I heard the song, I was humming it already. This is how I landed directing this amazing tune."
The music video will be released online on 17 July.
