Pony Verma Reflects on the Iconic ‘Ami Je Tomar’ and the Prospects of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3

Choreographer Pony Verma reminisces about the pivotal moment when director Priyadarshan entrusted her with the song “Ami Je Tomar” for the movie Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007), calling it the “song of her life.” Fast forward to today, and Verma considers the track to be one of her most iconic creations. With Vidya Balan as her “lucky mascot” and Kartik Aaryan’s commendable performance in the sequel Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (2022), Verma applauds Aaryan for his dedication in replicating the original track under Chinni Prakash’s choreography.

In a recent candid conversation, Verma expressed her admiration for Aaryan’s efforts, highlighting his exceptional portrayal of a classical number, a rare feat for a commercial actor. She praised his performance, emphasizing the seamless execution of the intricate dance moves.

Now, with the announcement of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 and the return of both Balan and Aaryan, Verma eagerly anticipates the prospect of choreographing another face-off between the two actors. She eagerly awaits the opportunity to work with a male and female actor, crossing her fingers in hope of being roped in for the third installment.

Reflecting on the original “Ami Je Tomar,” Verma recalls Balan’s remarkable performance, which showcased a fusion of Kathak, Odissi, and Bharatnatyam. Balan’s portrayal of two contrasting characters, one poised and regal, and the other wild and unkempt, captivated audiences. Verma revealed that Balan thoroughly enjoyed portraying the latter character, embracing its wild and untamed nature.

As Verma looks forward to potentially choreographing another iconic number for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3, fans eagerly await the continuation of this beloved franchise, anticipating another mesmerizing dance sequence that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.
