“I am elated to have such a cult number in the film,” says director Suresh Triveni. Adding that it was their intention ‘to pay a true tribute to the original and revive it in its full glory.’
Picturized on stars Vidya Balan aka Sulu, Neha Dhupia and RJ Malishka, the song was recreated by composer Tanishk Bagchi. What is cool is that the song retains Kavita Krishnamurthy’s vocals, as the track is synonymous with her incredible rendition.
Talking about the number, Vidya told us in our exclusive interview she more than freaked out when she learned that she was doing the number. “Sri Devi is my all time favorite and I think there is nothing she can’t do.” Saying that this is a tribute to the original, she added, “I had a blast doing this.”
It certainly looks as if she did, she is fabulous!
