Chandra woke up to the sobering news of Jacqueline Fernandez re-doing the iconic ‘Ek Do Teen’ dance number from Chandra’s Tezaab.

And it was the original choreographer Saroj Khan who gave Chandra the startling news. Says Chandra, “I met Sarojji at Sridevi’s prayer meeting. It was there that Sarojji marched up to me to tell me about it. Can you imagine how much it had upset her that she needed to vent at such a solemn occasion ? Anyway she came to me and said, ‘Have you seen what they’re doing to our ‘Ek Do Teen’ number?’ I had no clue. Sarojji told me that the makers of Baaghi 2 were doing a new version of ‘Ek Do Teen’. She said she will take legal action against it.”
