Vidya Balan to pay Tribute to Sridevi in “Tumhari Sulu” – After Aditya Roy Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Urvashi Rautela, now it’s the turn of Bollywood’s Begum Jaan Vidya Balan to showcase one of the old Bollywood chartbusters. The actress is all set to step into the shoes of the iconic dancing diva of Indian film industry, Sridevi. Being a die-heart fan of Sridevi, Vidya will dance to her iconic number ‘Hawa Hawai’ from 1987’s blockbuster hit ‘Mr. India in the upcoming slice-of- life family drama film “Tumhari Sulu.”
The movie has been produced by T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment and directed by Suresh Triveni. The soundtrack will be recreated by none other than Tanishk Bagchi, whose earlier transformations ‘Humma Humma’ and ‘Tamma Tamma’ songs were super hits.
But the makers have decided that the instead of getting the song re-sung by a new voice, it would be retained in Kavita Krishnamurthy’s voice as the track was synonymous with her unique vocals. The track will choreograph by Rajeev Surti in the month of June.
Tanishk earlier expressed his views on the trend of re-making older melodies, “Given a new life to some of the popular classic songs makes them worthy for revisiting the future generation. And we have no intentions of reviving the old soundtracks. We just make them young and refreshing for a younger generation and make them worth revisiting for every 10 years from now onwards.”
While film’s director Suresh Triveni said that, “I’m elated to have such a cult number in our movie. It plays a crucial role in the film and hence is not just a remix for end credits. Our main intention is to pay tribute to the original song and revive it in its full glory. And I’m looking forward to the flower power team of Vidya Balan and Neha Dhupiya to break a leg.”
Tumhari Sulu is a story of a cheerful radio jockey Sulochana aka Sulu which essayed by Kahaani 2 actress. The film is scheduled for worldwide release on December 1, 2017. After a disappointing success of average films over past few years, Vidya would want to impress the audience with her upcoming family drama.
