Bobby Deol flatly refused to dance provocatively for a song from THANK YOU. The comic caper directed by Anees Bazmee, who returns to celluloid after NO ENTRY and WELCOME, not just has one item number by the superhot Mallika Sherawat, but another remix of an iconic song. We're talking about Pyaar Do Pyaar Lo, which is a remix version from the film JAANBAAZ. It was originally picturised on the evergreen Rekha.
The film's central theme of extra marital affairs obviously meant a lot of steamy scenes in the film. All the four men - Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan and Suneil Shetty have many bedroom scenes with some very hot women. They are shown as playboys who cheat on their wives.
Pyaar Do Pyaar Lo has the four boys gyrating to the legendary song. The song is shot in a night club, and is extremely groovy. It is very sexy, with all the women dressed in a bikini. It had a very sexy theme to it. There were some sexy dance steps with the dancers of the song. One of the dance steps had the boys spanking the dancers, on their derrieres.
While Irrfan and Akshay both agreed to the dance step where the spanking was involved, however Bobby flatly refused to do the dance step.
Reveals a source, "When Akshay, Irrfan and Bobby were shown the steps for the song, Bobby was very hesitant to do the spanking step. Actually Bobby is very conscious that he is married, and refrains from doing and steamy or provocative steps."
Even after a lot of coaxing Bobby refused to budge. Even Anees Bazmi tried to talk Bobby into doing the step, but Bobby explained his predicament to Anees and he understood.
Finally the song has only Akshay and Irrfan doing the step.
Says Anees Bazmi "THANK YOU is a film about extra marital affairs. It's an out and out comedy, and keeping in mind the theme of the film, the choreographer came up with the step. It was a step done in jest. In fact, we were all making fun of Bobby that he felt shy."
The film is an ensemble film with Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor playing the lead.
