Forget your item song queens. Forget all you thought you knew about women paving the road to jolting their hips back and forth to poppy beats while their male counterparts fell into a daze and reciprocated with at most a few jumps here and there. Forget the men dipping into more legwork and less ‘thumkas.’ Forget everything. Ahmad Ali Butt, sir – take a bow. While Urwa Hocane has been the center of all focus for ‘Punjab Nahi Jaungi’s’ shaadi tune ’24 7 Lak Hilna,‘ it’s actually Ahmad who shines as the underdog in all entirety- and here’s why (Shakira ain’t got nothing on him)!
The actor busts out his lak very heartily as he challenges Urwa to a dance off
With his fervent moves perfectly in sync with the song
The song drips in color and Ahmad is by far the most vibrant, with his zealous naach
And unerring comical expressions
The scene is aesthetically vivid and is an ode to a grand wedding that has a speckle of Bollywood
Ahmad’s presence is undeniable, and it’s Urwa who slowly fizzles in light of the actor on screen
Who projects his best ‘hips, sorry lak don’t lie’
Don’t believe us?
And while Urwa does take a jab at attempting to showcase her ‘lak,’
It, unfortunately, falls flat with Ahmad’s far more shakeable one
It’s Ahmad’s song – he’s simply dazzling in it
We’d rather have it the other way round tbh, with him shoving Urwa out the spotlight
Watch the song below
What do you think of Ahmad’s lak lighting up the dance floor? And no, no one paid us to write this.
