Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is presently eventful for Tumhari Sulu. The film pays a tribute to Sridevi’s iconic song ‘Hawa Hawai’ from ‘Mr. India’.
Highlighting Vidya, Neha Dhupia, Hawa Hawai 2.0 is a party number where Vidya is seen engrossing us with her moves and grooves and innocent expressions. What really works for the song is that the makers have retained the original vocals of legendary singer Kavita Krishnamurthy.
But, Vidya, a Sridevi fan in real life, is quick to point out that the new ‘Hawa Hawai 2.0’ is not a remake or try to recreate the original.
While speaking to a tabloid, she revealed, “We are not recreating or remaking the original. It is us dancing at a party. Because you cannot do a Sridevi song. Only Sridevi can do a Sridevi track. I just danced through Hawa Hawai in the film because it was so much fun.”
Vidya further told, “I may have been five or six years old when the song released. As a child, I absolutely loved the song. I can’t believe that so many years later I am actually featuring in it. When I was informed about it during pre-production, I was both excited and anxious. It made me very nostalgic. Ours is a happy interpretation…an office party song. We had fun doing it!”
The original track was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Film Tumhari Sulu is a comedy-drama, which will be directed by adman Suresh Triveni. The movie also stars Neha Dhupia and Manav Kaul in pivotal roles. It is scheduled to release on November 17, 2017.
