Coming soon-new version of Mile sur mera tumhara

Posted on: November 17, 2009

Ranbir Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty and Deepika Padukone will feature in the new version of Mile sur mera tumhara. Amitabh Bachchan will be common to both

By Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 17, 2009)

Remember the song, Mile sur mera tumhara – the song on national integration that used to be aired on television in 1988?

Ad filmmaker Kailash Surendranath and his wife Aarti had produced the video, featuring stalwarts from the world of acting, singing and sports. Now, an updated version of the song with new artistes is being shot by the same producers in different parts of India.

Interestingly, Ranbir was chosen to participate in the freshly conceived, designed and executed version of the music video as the new youth icon. Ranbir shot for the video at Film City and Yash Raj Studios on Sunday. And, Amitabh Bachchan is the only artiste from the earlier music video to feature in the new version.

Shilpa Shetty, Ranbir Kapoor & Deepika Padukone

When we asked Bachchan about the honour of being the only artiste to feature in both the versions of the song, he replied, “I have not only participated in the new Mile sur mera tumhara, but have also sung a part of the original composition (composed by Louis Banks and P Vaidyanathan). We shot my portion of the song at the Taj hotel.”

Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have also shot for the song.

Shilpa Shetty and Deepika Padukone are the other celebrities from the entertainment sector to be featured. Commenting about the song, Deepika said, “My dad was part of the first one. Now I am in the second.”

Talking about the project, Aarti said, “At the moment we want to keep it really quiet until we finish the project.”
