Subhash Ghai as a real tribute to his friend and colleage Ashok Mehta surprised the audience full of students & Industry professionals by screening a song of the most talked about film DEVAA starring AMITABH BACHCHAN. First time after 24 years the song was seen by anyone inside the Whistling Woods Auditorium. DEVAA was shelved after one schedule unfortunately due to unavoidable circumstances. The song was the first time Subhash Ghai had collaborated with Ashok Mehta & Mr. Bachchan. After the film was shelved Filmmaker Subhash Ghai shifted his entire unit of Technicians that were signed for DEVAA, including Music composers Laxmikant & Pyarelal, for his smaller budget film Ram Lakhan. The song of DEVAA got a standing ovation by the Students.
