Nithiin, who is a huge fan of Hrithik, wanted to pay tribute to him,” shares Venky.
Since the Ghungroo number was shot at Positano, Nithiin wanted recreate a popular dance move from that song, Venky explained, adding that they had gone to the Positano beach specifically for the purpose. “It was heartening that Hrithik acknowledged our gesture. His reply has really made our day,” Venky said. However, the little jig will not form part the film.
