A reworked version of Guru Randhawa’s High Rated Gabru was released by T-Series on Wednesday. The song will appear in Jayesh Pradhan’s upcoming romatic comedy Nawabzaade. High Rated Gabru was first released in 2017. The reworked version features Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor dancing to Remo D’Souza’s choreography.
Produced by Remo D’Souza Entertainment, Nawabzaade features Raghav Juyal, Punit Pathak and Dharmesh Yelande, with special appearances from Dhawan and Kapoor. The cast was last seen together in D’Souza’s dance drama Anybody Can Dance 2 (2015).
“I am sure this song is now going to go on a different level,” T-Series Managing Director and Chairman Bhushan Kumar said in a press release. “Varun and Shraddha had developed a fantastic camaraderie with the actors of ABCD 2. So it was not surprising that they agreed to be part of this video.”
Several of Radhawa’s songs have been picked up for films, including Suit Suit in Hindi Medium (2017), Banja Tu Meri Raani in Tumhari Sulu (2017) and Patola in Blackmail (2018). “We have tried to maintain the vibe of the song with a few improvisations.” Randhawa said in a press release. “I hope this version of High Rated Gabru with Shraddha and Varun’s power-packed dance moves receives as much love from the audience as the original track did.”
