I am sure you have seen this by now – a dance-off between Priyanka and Deepika in a Maharashtrian nine yard saree!
Yes, Deepika did come across as slightly more distant in the dance floor than Priyanka did, but I don’t care. I was just too busy watching the choreography and all these gorgeous dancers moving around like lightening bolts.
The green bangles symbolize marriage while the earrings worn in the upper part of the ear is called bugadi. Dippy and Priyanka are also wearing the cummerbund, vel (stringed earrings) and Kolhapuri Saj (necklace). Both the divas have an identical hairstyle – the bun, which is called the khopa.
The number Pingaa is a lavani with folk and classical elements infused in it. It has been choreographed by Remo D’Souza over a period of 12 days. Pingaa has been shot in a larger than life set with over 50 background dancers. The actresses reportedly rehearsed for it for more than 10 days. After Devdas, this will be the second time when one will see two great contemporary actresses dancing in the same frame. Priyanka plays the role of Kashibai, Bajirao’s first wife while Mastani is the woman he loves. Ranveer Singh plays the role of Peshwa Bajirao, the legendary Maratha warrior. A lot of thought went into the costumes that are designed by veteran designer Anju Modi.
The two actresses apparently bonded quite well during the making of the song. Priyanka who ordered a dance kit for herself from the US also ordered one for Dippy. She had also taken to Twitter to express her excitement about the song.
