Mast Baharon Ka Main Aashiq....

Anybody who has seen this sizzling and bouncy super hit song of Jeetendra in the film FARZ (1967) or on video will definitely vouch out that Jeetendra is at his dancing best and even belittles the dancing sensation of the late 60s Aruna Irani, who is his co-star in the song.


What's more, it was after this super hit song that media coined Jeetendra with the title of 'Jumping Jack' for his vigor and zing in dancing department. 
However, readers would be surprised to know that when film director Ravikant Nagaich had selected Jeetendra for the film he was severely criticized by many producers for gambling with a flop actor. People raised eye brows but he had confidence in the young actor.

However, trouble arose when he had to shoot the song Mast Baharon Ka Main Aashiq.... The song was picturized on Jeetendra and Aruna Irani. Since Aruna Irani was proficient dancer hence she expressed her reservation dancing along with an incompetent dancer like new comer Jeetendra.

Choreographer Hiralal and Saroj Khan (who was then assistant choreographer) had hard time during rehearsals as Arun insisted to train novice Jeetendra, while she rested. Since Aruna was truly an excellent dancer hence the choreographers obliged, while Jeetendra dedicatedly followed the choreographers instructions.
Finally, when the shooting commenced Aruna Iran was left stunned at the agility and vibrancy of Jeetendra. Since the dance was a fast number and the duo had to sprint large landscapes, Aruna failed to match the vigor of Jeetendra's dance movement and the song had to be re-shot multiple times.

And that's not all, Aruna had to listen harsh scolding from director Ravikant Nagaich too!

After this song Aruna realized the mastery of Jeetendra over dance. Later the duo did many captivating dance sequences in many movies like CARAVAN and others.
