On May 23, when the Kannada lyrical video of the first single from Kiccha Sudeep’s 3D fantasy action thriller Vikrant Rona came out, it quite literally took social media by storm. Called Gadang Rakkamma – The Queen of Good Times, the song, written by director Anup Bhandari and sung by Nakash Azmi and Sunidhi Chauhan, features Sudeep and Bollywood siren Jacqueline Fernandez.
Choreographed by Jani master, the song is an energetic dance number, in which Jacqueline does most of the dancing. The lyrical video, though, only had visuals of the Ra Ra Rakkamma hook step, and that quickly became the most trending song for social media reels. Pretty much everyone worth his/her salt was seen trying the Rakkamma hook step for a reel. Even Sudeep did his first-ever reel on this song.
Closer to the release of the film on July 28, the team put out a teaser of the song, which featured more visuals of Jacqueline. When the film came out, though, audiences were divided about the song. While most loved the song, the choreography and Jacqueline’s kickass moves, some thought that the special number was not required and wondered by she would agree to be a part of film in which all she gets is a scene with a few lines and this dance number.
Unperturbed by these mixed reviews to the full song, Jacqueline has only been looking at the positives of having been a part of the film. The actress has spoken at length about being a part of the film, at all the events that she’s been a part of for Vikrant Rona promotions. After the film’s theatrical release, she took to social media to thank everyone for the love the song got. She wrote, “Had a blast shooting my first ever Kannada song and Seeing you all grooving to it in theatres made us so happy!!! It was a pleasure working with you @KicchaSudeep✨❤️Special thanks to @AlwaysJani and crew for their immense dedication and hardwork for this! “
