‘Befikra’ makers dismiss similarity to ‘Befikre’
The producer, director and lyricist of the new music single “Befikra” have clarified that there is no similarity between their song and director Aditya Chopra’s movie “Befikre”, starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor.
While there is only a singular-plural difference in terms of the name, the single and the film have both been shot in the city of Paris. The lead actors of the film — Ranveer and Vaani — are seen locking lips in the posters that have been revealed, and similarly, Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani are also seen kissing several times in the single.
At the launch of the song, when asked about the similarity, director Sam Bombay said: “We had decided nine months ago that we will shoot in Paris. There was no coincidence in it. It is going on since that time.”
Bhushan Kumar of music label T-series, that has produced the song, said: “That time I think ‘Befikre’ was not launched, not even the title of the film was launched.”
Lyricist Kumaar said: “When I started writing (the song), I didn’t even know that another film was coming up. We have written it on our own. That title (‘Befikre’) came up later.”
Bhushan added: “There is similarity, it is not the same. This is ‘Befikra’ and that is ‘Befikre’.”
“Befikra” is the third single Tiger is starring in for the same music label, after “Zindagi aa raha hoon main” and “Chal wahan jaate hain”.
