There has been a lot of talk of how Balu Mahi resembles Bajirao Mastani in many ways. However, the cast and crew are being a great sport about and taking criticism in a stride.
Osman Khalid Butt, the leading man in the film starring with Ainy Jaffri, posted a video on Instagram announcing a dance competition for Balu Mahi. The top 5 winners will receive exclusive Balu Mahi merch and the top 3 winners will get a signed Balu Mahi Music album by Ainy and Obi.
Watch the video!
Nine straight hours from shooting to editing – but man, was it worth it. A HUGE shout-out to my friends: @hareemfarooq, @faizaanahab, Khizer Hussain, @zainabahmedofficial, @imranrazakazmi, Hyra Farooq, Imran Khalid, Ottoman Ali Khan.. and @theusmanmukhtar for that hilarious cameo! Also Junaid Malik & Saad Ali for directing this video, letting me use Nysa Lounge till the wee hours of the morning, and especially Saad for being such a pro at the editing table. Right then: announcing our latest competition for #BaluMahi – time to get those dancing shoes on. The Rules: 1. Make a Dubsmash of you performing to the chorus of the song (OR download the title track from bestsongs.pk and use that) by either copying the original choreography or better yet: choreograph the song yourself and show us & the world how YOU would have danced on the song! 2. Remember: the video should only be the chorus of the Balu Mahi title track, and should NOT be longer than 16-20 seconds. 3. Share your videos on the Balu Mahi Facebook page – remember, the crazier the moves, the better your chances are of winning! 5. The BM team will be selecting 5 winners who will receive exclusive Balu Mahi merchandise, and the TOP 3 will also get a personalized copy of the Balu Mahi music album signed by me, @ainy_jaffri_rahman and @sadafkanwal! 6. What are you waiting for?! Stop reading, start dancing and sending in your entries to the BM Facebook page NOW! @balumahi.official
