As they say - Out of the deepest mud the most beautiful lotus grows... Similarly, talent can be found in the most unexpected places... And makers of 'Fukrey' were keen on this...
Producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani were stunned at the talent common people have in India. So many people have so many hidden talents and once they know their true calling they achieve so much. And so they had conducted a nationwide contest to search for Jugaadus (read people who have achieved something after being mediocre in schools and colleges).
Out of thousands of people who applied they have short listed and handpicked personally five people to launch the song in PVR Juhu today evening, along with Farhan, Ritesh and the entire cast of the film. "Jugaad" as a song salutes all the latent in people and applauds the spirit of 'Fukrey'.
Flying down from various parts of the country, all these five people are true jugaadus who have achieved something in life in nonconformist or conventional way.
