Vidya Balan has started shooting for her upcoming film Tumhari Sulu in the city. In the film, the talented actor will be seen playing the role of an RJ in the film. This is the second time we will see Vidya as a radio jockey as she played one in Sanjay Dutt starrer Lage Raho Munna Bhai.
Now as per the current trend of recreating chartbuster hits in the film, Tumhari Sulu is all set to do the same. Yes, the film will have a new version of Sridevi’s hit song Hawa Hawai from Mr. India. Vidya and her co-star Neha Dhupia will be seen grooving to the track.
Talking about it, the director of the film, Suresh Triveni stated to a leading tabloid, “Music plays an important role in our film as it is set in the world of radio. The song isn’t just a promotional track. It appears at an important point in the story.”
He further added, “Vidya’s Sulu is a big fan of Sridevi and we wanted to pay a true tribute to the original, reviving it in its full glory.”
Suresh also spoke about the rehearsal of the song, saying, “Vidya and Neha will start rehearsing in a week and we will shoot the final song sometime in mid-June. It will have the right balance of the original’s charm and a contemporary vibe.”
When asked about the look of the actors in the song, Triveni said, “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.”
