One of Guru Randhawa’s hits and an absolute crowd-favorite song, High Rated Gabru is being featured in an upcoming Bollywood film. Titled Nawabzaade, the film is directed by Remo D’Souza and it stars Raghav Juyal, Punit J Pathak, and Dharmesh Yelande. The song has been re-composed by Guru himself and is picturized on Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor.
The original song has over 400 million views on YouTube and was an instant hit. High Rated Gabru happens to be the fourth Guru Randhawa song to be featured in a Bollywood movie. Suit Suit (Hindi Medium), Ban Ja Rani (Tumhari Sulu), Patola (Blackmail) are other songs that were featured in Bollywood movies.
Feeling elated about the development Guru Randhawa was quoted saying, “It’s an exciting period for me as I am getting to work with a lot of new people. Varun paji has been very fond of my original song and he suggested the same to the makers. I was all charged up when I heard that we are recreating the song with Varun paji.” The singer hopes that this version of High Rated Gabru receives as much love from the audience as the original did. He is confident that the song would do well owing to Shraddha and Varun’s power-packed performance.
The song stars Varun, Shraddha, Raghav, Punit and Dharmesh making it look like a little ABCD 2 reunion. The party number has crossed over 16 million views on YouTube and is a sensation on the Internet. Varun’s power-packed moves and his sizzling chemistry with Shraddha is hard to miss. There aren’t a lot of changes in this version except a few updated beats and a comparatively fast tempo. This, however, seems to give the song an edgy feel to it. The amazing choreography is one of the highlights of the song.
