Ganesh Acharya shared that he could have never imagined that the song would earn him the Best Choreography honour at the 65th National Film Awards. Watch Gori Tu Latth Maar making video here:

Choreographer Ganesh Acharya was certain that the sequence of “Gori Tu Latth Maar” had to be shot in a grand way, given the fact that it shows the popular Holi celebration specific to Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, where people hit each other with a stick. I will touch my mother’s feet now and take her blessings.

Acharya is happy the vision and the efforts of the team have paid off. But Acharya says he could have never imagined that the song would earn him the Best Choreography honour at the 65th National Film Awards. I want to thank Neeraj Pandey (film’s producer), Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar and Shree Narayan Singh for having faith in me and giving me this song. It is very famous and we tried to shoot it in the grandest way possible, with lots of moments and dance,” he said. This song was anyway very different because it showed Mathura’s Holi, which is called ‘Latth Maar Holi’. Related News
