Sonakshi Sinha, who recently appeared in the recreated version of ‘Chin Chin Chu’ for her movie ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’, the movie which released today, is all set to recreate Helen’s iconic track ‘Mungda’ for Indra Kumar ‘upcoming film, Total Dhamaal. The actress will be seen shaking a leg for this special number.

After the song was finalised the makers wanted a fantastic dancer who could match Helen’s moves. Indra Kumar shared, “Helenji, is a legend, but I thought Sonakshi is the right girl for it.”

Sonakshi Sinha who is very excited about doing the song shares, “Indraji was sure that he wanted only me for it. When I heard it for the first time, my instant response was, ‘I want to do this!’ It has the potential of becoming a chartbuster again. They are shooting it on a lavish scale, making everything larger-than-life, and I would love to be a part of that vision. We start shooting early next week and I’m super excited!”

Sharing details of the shoot, Indra Kumar reveals that the film will wrap up with the song. The director further adds, “We had saved this song for the end of the shoot. We begin filming on August 26 and it will go on for four days. We have roped in a new music director duo Gaurav-Roshan to recreate the song which will be choreographed by Adil Shaikh. The old song was a big hit so it’s a huge responsibility on Sonakshi’s shoulders and mine too. We have picked up an iconic song now we have to deliver.”

The actress has already begun rehearsals and Ajay will enter midway through, so the song is a duet towards the end. The duo will start shooting for the song this Sunday.

Sonakshi is happy to reunite with Ajay with whom she was paired in Son of Sardaar and Action Jackson. Co-incidentally they gave memorable songs in both – ‘Rani Tu Main Raja’ and ‘Keeda’.

Total Dhamaal features Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Riteish Deshmukh, Javed Jaffery, Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani, Pitobash Tripthy and Sanjay Mishra, and is produced by Devgn, Fox Star Studios and Ashok Thakeria.

Meanwhile, Nora, who is bonding with Helen post bagging a role in ‘Bharat’, spoke about her idol saying, “Helenji has truly blessed me! She gave me her blessings the first time I met her during Salman’s birthday party in December. I had a long chat with her about my career goals and she put her hand on my head and said I’m giving you blessings and I want all the doors to open up for you. You will do very well in your career. And she advised me not to let people bring me down and not to give up. I took a lovely picture with her and since I met her and had the talk, everything has changed for me. My career literally took off and Bharat, Dilbar and Stree happened for me.”
