Jackky, while talking about the song, says that the focus was to up the game after the track “Kamariya” in his 2018 film “Mitron”, so his team had to create something that uniquely surprising yet true to the festive spirit.
“After ‘Kamariya’ last year, I knew we had to up our game and give people something that is both uniquely surprising yet true to the festival spirit. With a global icon like Dytto in the song, we have attempted to make it cross-cultural, breaking all boundaries. We hope people love the song for more than just its dance merit,” said Jackky.
On working in the video, Dytto says: “I’m very excited about this collaboration. Ever since my parents have been in India, I have wanted to work here and Jackky Bhagnani came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse. The culture and the music of India are extremely full of life and this song ‘Choodiyan’ perfectly depicts that. The song is happy, it’s fun and it will make you want to dance.”
Dytto won everyone’s heart including the judges Punit J Pathat, Shakti Mohan, Dharmesh Yelande, host Raghav Juyal and super judge Remo D’souza during her participation in ‘Dance Plus 3’ in 2017.
