Vaibhavi Merchant reveals Ranveer Singh had a meltdown before shooting the Dola Re Dola Sequence

In an interview with Hindustan Times, choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant shared that Ranveer Singh was struggling with the challenges of performing Dola Re Dola. She shared, “Oh, he had a meltdown (laughs). He would only call Karan saying he can’t do this. Because he knows I am a taskmaster. Knowing him, he must’ve watched Birju Maharaj’s videos. But I told Karan that I won’t be able to ease this because then I’d be doing a disservice to those who’ve dedicated their entire lives to this dance form. I’m a Kathak exponent myself. In fact, I’m a khandani, I hail from the Jaipur gharana. My late grandfather Late Sunder Prasad ji is the founder of the Jaipur gharana.”

According to Vaibhavi, she conveyed to Karan that Ranveer needed to maintain the authenticity of the craft. Continuing what happened behind the scenes of the songs, she said, “I told Karan that Ranveer would have to stay true to the craft, but I’d make sure he doesn’t look stupid, I’d protect him. It’s not that ragging scene from Munna Bhai MBBS that it has to look funny. People had to look at it and say WOW. It had to do the opposite of laughter.”

She further shared how she choreographed the song, she said, “If Ranveer would’ve looked caricaturish, we’d have failed. So I handheld him and we took it one hour at a time. I choreograph keeping the actor in mind. It had to suit the actor’s body language. You can’t come up with the choreography for Hrithik Roshan for any other actor. Film choreographing isn’t like making an Instagram Reel.”

In the end, all the hard work and dedication put in by Ranveer Singh paid off as the scene was delivered with perfection and flawless execution.
