|Dum Maaro Dum|
After remixing an old song, Sabse bada Rupaiya in Bluffmaster (2005), filmmaker Rohan Sippy is set to recreate another classic Dum Maro Dum from Dev Anand’s Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971) for his new film. The song created a sensation when the film released, making Zeenat Aman an overnight star.
Incidentally, the title of the film is also Dum Maro Dum and stars Abhishek Bachchan, Pratik and Telugu star Rana Daggubati.
Confirming the news, Rohan says, “Yes, the title of the film is Dum Maro Dum. As far as the song goes, we are still in talks with SaRe GaMa for the necessary permissions. At the moment, we have finalised the songs. We will work on the title song only when we are closer to the release of the film.”
Incidentally, the film’s shooting is yet to begin.
Of all the old songs, what made Rohan opt for this particular song? “The song is a classic and everything about it is unique. These days everyone is doing promotional songs.
We want to be different and do something unique. Legendary names are involved with the song and we don’t want to tarnish their reputation by doing a bad job. We want to do complete justice to the song and live up to the expectations of the earlier song.
Pritam is composing music and Jaideep Sahni has written the lyrics. We will decide how to go about the song, once the film is shot,” says Rohan.
