That Vidya Balan is a huge Sridevi fan is commonly known.The viewers will now get to see Vidya dance to Sridevi’s chartbuster ‘Hawa Hawai’ (from the blockbuster MR. INDIA) in her forthcoming slice-of-life family film, TUMHARI SULU.
The makers of the film felt that instead of getting the track re-sung by a new voice, it would be wise to retain Kavita Krishnamurthy’s voice, as the track was synonymous with her unique vocals. The iconic number is being recreated by Tanishk Bagchi, who has the recently recreated ‘Humma Humma’ and ‘Tamma Tamma’ to his credit.
Talking about the track director Triveni shared, “I am elated to have such a cult number in the film. It plays a key role in the film and is not just a remix for the end credits. Our intention is to pay a true tribute to the original and revive it in its full glory. I am looking forward to the flower power team of Vidya and Neha (Dhupia) to break a leg.”
Prod him if Vidya and Neha’s looks will be inspired by Sridevi’s and the director says, “You might see some glimpses in terms of the moves, but the look will be our interpretation of the original visuals. We haven’t zeroed down on the final look yet though.”
This recreated track of ‘Hawa Hawai’ will be choreographed by Rajeev Surti.
Directed by Suresh Triveni and produced by T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment, TUMHARI SULU opens worldwide on December 1.
