After all her various glam roles, Deepika returns to her usual girl-next-door avatar in this sweet little romantic number from Happy New Year. Titled Manwa Laage, the video focuses on the chemistry between Deepika and Shahrukh as they prepare for their grand dance performance in the film. Though the rest of the cast is also present, they fade into the background as we see Deepika and SRK lock eyes in true Bollywood fashion. It almost feels like a throwback to their romance in Farah’s last outing with this duo - Om Shanti Om. Oh and SRK flaunts his newfound eight-pack abs to good effect and that gives SRK fans one very good reason to watch this video a few million times.
Deepika also appears to be a pyromaniac who loves setting Shahrukh’s behind on fire and then later burning his shirt to a crisp with some weird fire effects. Overall the song retains the funny, slapstick elements of the film but is otherwise a sweet, romantic number.
