Pathaan marks the comeback of superstar Shah Rukh Khan after over 4 years. The Siddharth Anand directorial, which also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, is all set to hit cinemas on January 25. Ahead of the release, the makers have dropped a promo trivial video related to the film that sees Indian choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant talking about the dance sequences in Besharam Rang and more.

As the video begins, Vaibhavi speaks about how she came up with the hook step of Besharam Rang. She shares, "In the case of this song, I think it was a process because there were many options. It just kind of evolved. Sid (the director) was present there and I think he is very passionate about his audio, his music."

"The sequence and the situation also drive a lot with choreography for films. My choreography in a song is always related to the screenplay, story and the character perspective," she adds.

Talking about how it was a conscious thing to not make Shah Rukh dance a lot but just flaunt his chiselled abs and style, Vaibhavi says that she did not want it to be a typical Hindi movie party song. "The song is very langued and led back with 'adah' and 'adahkaari.'" 

Sharing her experience with Deepika, the famous choreographer calls her a hustler and says that the actor is a silent observer and clever about her work. Meanwhile, talking about SRK, Vaibhavi shares, "When he comes on the set, he is so charming with his beautiful smile. With the hair and all, he is just a charismatic Shah Rukh at his best. I think he can even charm a palm tree," she adds.
