While Director Gifty is someone who has shot extremely stylish videos with Guru earlier, for this too, he is not leaving any stone unturned.

Director Gifty travelled to Toronto and shot nonstop for the song without taking the jet lag into account. It is a wonder how both do not think of sleep and just focus on coming out with a single that will enthrall viewers. Guru also had to shoot for it and finish the work fast as he had to come back for the shoot of his ongoing music reality show in India. Ask Director Gifty about it and he says, “Our songs and the videos have crossed the 100 million mark many times. And, therefore, to keep this happening again, I feel it is important to not think of the timelines of different countries and continuously focus on good work. I am sure that Downtown will be a big hit as Guru has performed well and we are both dedicated to the job.”

Recently, ‘Ishare Tere’, Guru’s single was shot by Director Gifty again and the song has already caught up with the young crowds. They decided to shoot the video and Guru who was travelling on an India tour came back to shoot for it because Director Gifty wanted that he only feature in it. Guru shot for the video continuously for 20 hours and then decided to leave. Since the song did so well on the charts, Guru was persistent at giving this his best, and making it a video that people will always remember.

This song is my favourite and I am not being diplomatic here. Also, Guru is very hard-working. Even after travelling, he was ready to shoot so long for the song and had a positive attitude about improvisations on it. That’s what I like about Guru. I have directed Guru Randhawa in ‘Made in India’ and ‘High Rated Gabru’, ‘Lahore’ and we work well together. He has a great understanding of what I perceive about each video.”

Shahid and Kiara helped Director Gifty to complete the shoot of the iconic song ‘Urvashi’

In addition to the humidity and suffocation in the basement low level area, there were the bright lights and smoke to add to the ambience of the song. Director Gifty said, “Being a director it was a challanging conditions for me to complete the sequence in the given time. When I explained the situation to my artists Shahid and Kiara without throwing any attitude decided to shoot the whole sequence without taking any break so that the entire unite could wrap up the sequence and take a good break in the next location which was was setup in filmcity.”

Asked him why he chose a newbie like Kiara to dance with an ace dancer like Shahid and he says,  “Kiara was great in MS Dhoni. She has that raw innocent appeal about her,  which clicks with audiences. She is also new and audiences will be surprised  to see her match steps with Shahid.  As for Shahid he is an accomplished  dancer and has delivered chart busters for Prabhudheva songs.  So who better than him?”

Director Gifty has directed a variety of singles with many popular singers and actors from Bollywood. With the song Urvashi,  he has only made another step towards connecting hugely with masses.  He adds,  “I just focus on good work. Directing the popular Urvashi song is my effort towards remembering the talented Prabhudheva and making it even further recreate memories for audiences.”
