Befikra was actually going to be an inspirational song featuring Hrithik and Tiger Shroff. But after the superstar got injured, producer Bhushan Kumar made it into a romantic song with Tiger and Disha Patani. “I was actually going to do this song with Hrithik Roshan as a part of HRX, but last minute he got injured and coz of that we changed the track. So Bhushan sir changed it to Befikra and our director Sam Sir wanted to direct the song with me, (so he retained me),” said Tiger Shroff post the song launch.
But how did Disha make it on board? Tiger reveals, “He (Sam Bombay) was looking for a girl (after Hrithik couldn’t be a part of the song). He saw a video of Disha dancing and he was taken aback by it. So the cast was locked. It was a young song, we started our journey nine months ago. I was shooting for Baaghi and A Flying Jatt, so I didn’t have the time. Post Baaghi I got time, so we finished it (now).”
