Mumbai: Actress Ileana D’Cruz was nervous about recreating the favored Salman Khan and Kajol tune “Tum par hum hai atke yaara”, from 1998 superhit “Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya”. The recreated tune was filmed on Ileana and her co-star John Abraham for the upcoming comedy, “Pagalpanti”.
“Recreating a classic is always met with a certain kind of expectation, and I was definitely nervous. But shooting with Ganesh Acharya (who also choreographed the original) made it so much easier,” Ileana stated, including: “He (Acharya) made the entire song so much fun that John and I were completely relaxed during the shoot. We had a blast.”
The tune has recreated by Tanishk Bagchi, penned by Sabbir Ahmed, and sung by Mika and Neha Kakkar. It has been shot in London.
Added John: “This song is one of my favourites and I thoroughly enjoyed dancing to it.”
“Pagalpanti” director Anees Bazmee stated that the tune will convey again the magic “that Salman and Kajol” had created.
“I love it how John has performed in this song and I feel there should be more such songs with him in it as the audience will love it. It’s a definite add on to the movie and the young generation will love this when they dance to it in the clubs,” he added.
“Pagalpanti”, additionally starring Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda, Urvashi Rautela and Saurabh Shukla, will launch on November 22.
The movie is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar’s T-Collection and Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak’s Panorama Studios and co-produced by Vinod Bhanushali, Shiv Chanana, Aditya Chowksey and Sanjeev Joshi.
