As music videos continue to be the rage for one and all, we have seen more and more stars coming in and be a part of multiple music videos all the time. For a few days, actor Vikram Singh Chauhan has been teasing posters and teasers of upcoming song, Deewane Do with Sasha Shetty, But what is interesting about the same is that Chauhan wasn't the first choice.
Actor Shoaib Ibrahim was the one approached and even brought on board but he had to opt out on the day of the shoot due to unavoidable circumstances. The actor's father's health had deteriorated and therefore, he had to let go off this song.
Chauhan went on to talk about it with ETimes TV as he said, "I remember I was almost off to sleep when I got a call from my friend Atmika Tiwari checking on my availability as they were stuck in between shoot and urgently needed me. I remember packing my bags late night and rushing to the airport, landing in Delhi same day and heading straight to the set to finish the shoot. Glad I at least got a pee break before we rolled the camera."
Tiwari thanked Chauhan for being such a sport and also expressed her desire of collaborating with Ibrahim in future. About it, Tiwari talked about it with ETimes TV as she said, "Our new song, Deewane Do is releasing on February 2. The female lead is Sasha Shetty. She is a ballet dancer and has done an amazing job. Our male lead is Vikram Singh Chauhan. We initially locked Shoaib Ibrahim but due to some unavoidable circumstances we had to replace him with Vikram Singh Chauhan. On the day of shoot, we had to start at 6 PM and Shoaib got a call from his family that his father isn't well. He'd got a stroke and he had to immediately fly back home. That was a very unfortunate situation for us. At that point, we were very helpless and we called Vikram Singh Chouhan and he came as a support. It was so nice of him that he immediately said 'yes' when we called him to do the song. We are very thankful to Vikram for this amazing gesture. We would really love to work with Shoaib Ibrahim in future but it was so unfortunate that we couldn't work with him."
The song is set to release on 3rd February 2022.
