Vijay Deverakonda, Ananya Panday Dance to Jugjugg Jeeyo’s “The Punjaabban Song”: “Hooked to the vibe”

After Varun Dhawan grooved to ‘The Punjaabban Song’ with dad David Dhawan, Ananya Panday kicked off Monday with the energetic number from the upcoming film Jugjugg Jeeyo. The actress shared a video where she was seen performing the song’s hook step with Liger co-star Vijay Deverakonda. “Addicted to this move and the vibe of this song,” she wrote as the video’s caption. Ananya and Vijay looked super adorable as they performed the move.

The video appeared to have been shot on the sets of Karan Johar’s talk show – Koffee With Karan Season 7. Earlier this year, KJo announced that his long-awaited talk show would stream exclusively on Disney+Hotstar. The filmmaker is currently shooting for the show. Karan is the producer of Jugjugg Jeeyo as well as Liger.

Jugjugg Jeeyo plays Varun Dhawan with Ananya Panday, Anil Kapoor and marks the comeback of Neetu Kapoor to the big screen. The film’s first song, “The Punjaabban Song,” drew controversy when Pakistani singer Abrar Ul Haq claimed the film’s creators “copied” the song.

“I have not sold my song ‘To Punjaban’ to any Indian film and reserve the right to go to court to claim damages. Producers like @karanjohar shouldn’t use copied songs. This is my 6th song being copied which is not allowed at all,” the tweet read. Soon, Series T released a statement mentioning that they had “legally acquired” the rights to the song. Later, a writer named Vishal A Singh has claimed that the film’s story was copied from his story, which he sent to Dharma Productions in 2020 in hopes of working with the production house. However, the production house has not provided an answer.

Liger, on the other hand, marks the first Pan-Indian film by Ananya and Vijay. The film, which will also see a cameo from the legendary Mike Tyson, will be directed by Puri Jagannadh. The director is also collaborating with Vijay on his next one titled Jana Gana Mana.

While Jugjugg Jeeyo is slated for June 24th, Liger is expected to hit theaters later this year.
