Bollywood Blind Item 8 – March 2018
Today’s first blind item comes from Mumbai Mirror. It’s about this young actress and the 90s popular song that has been recreated. First of all, let us say that recreating famous old songs is something that directors and producers want to do. Music directors themselves are not interested, but have to give in to the producers’ demands because they are the ones signing the paychecks. One way to look at it is that the generation of today will get to be aware of these 90s songs because they have been remixed and performed by actors that this generation recognises.
Alright, back to the topic on hand. We had no idea that they were remaking this song. This actress has been in so many item songs that it’s hard to keep track. But, this song? Come on! When we first saw the teaser a couple of days back, we just panicked. Think, your old lady seeing the trailer of the first 50 Shades of Grey type of panic! Well, in this scenario, we were dead hoping that this legendary actress does not see what they have done with her hit song. We actually went, “We hope she doesn’t see this. Her heart will be broken at how they are destroying her legacy’. Then lo and behold, some websites are even tagging her when they are sharing this teaser or news related to this teaser!
The teaser was so bad! It’s not like we are prudes or anything like that, but there’s a limit to everything. Producers, directors and choreographers these days think we are all so sexualised that everything has to be sexy by giving the actors less clothes to wear and dance moves that will put your grandma to rest forever! In the 90s hit song, there was grace, fun and beauty in the song. It was all innocent, so much so that kids would sing it in class because it sounds like a nursery rhyme. The recreated version looks like the type of song that gets played in a dance-for-pay kind of environment. We won’t say where, but you get the idea.
Why are they doing this? Just stop already! It’s a good thing that we don’t support all these silly remixes. The only thing these songs make us want to do is to go back and watch the original and appreciate it. Check out the blind item below on Mumbai Mirror to see who we are ranting about. Good thing that this legendary actress is not going to promote this song. There’s a limit to everything!
STARS share practically everything on their photosharing sites—from what they eat for breakfast to the view of their homes to their looks in different films to even the obvious announcements. But this is the sort of news that you’d never hear about. A young leading lady, who’s performing a remake of an iconic song in her next film, had asked the original heroine to shoot a promotional video with her. The request was made several times, but each time the senior heroine said she was travelling or didn’t have dates. It took a while for the current actress to come to terms with the fact that a ‘too busy’ also means ‘no’.
Leading Lady: Jacqueline Fernandez
Original Heroine: Madhuri Dixit
