While Amitabh Bachchan's celebrated look in the classic 'Pag Ghunghroo' from the film NAMAK HALAAL is still fresh in our minds, the actor will be seen once again in a similar avatar in Eros International's ALADIN.

Mr. Bachchan will be seen grooving to a peppy number called 'O Re Sawariya' in the celebrated White kurta and Pink Pagadi which he once donned in the film NAMAK HALAAL.

In this sequence, Jacqueline (Jasmine) is trying to woo Riteish (Aladin) while Amitabh Bachchan (Genius) keeps popping into the scene at various points.

Says Director Sujoy Ghosh, ''We had no intentions of repeating his look from NAMAK HALAAL. It is purely a coincidence but it definitely shows how the actor has impacted our minds over the years through his cult performances.''

Talking about the song, Sujoy adds, '''O Re Sawariya' is a fun filled number and Mr. Bachchan has added an extra charm to it with his unique style and unbeatable energy. We had a great time filming this song and I am sure audiences will love it too''.

The song is picturised on Mr. Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh & Jacqueline Fernandes and choreographed by Bosco Ceaser and Saroj Khan. The soundtrack is by duo Vishal-Shekhar. The costumes for the film are designed by Narendra Kumar.

Starring Amitabh Bachchan as Genius - The Genie, Ritiesh Deshmukh as Aladin and Sanjay Dutt as 'Ringmaster', ALADIN also marks the debut of Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandes who is paired opposite Ritiesh. ALADIN, produced by Eros International and Boundscript (Sujoy Ghosh) is a contemporary look at the classic fairy tale.

ALADIN is arriving at theatres this Diwali.
