The makers of ‘Kutte’ on Thursday unveiled the new song ‘Phir Dhan Te Naan’ from Aasman Bhardwaj’s upcoming film. Vishal Bhardwaj, the composer of the track, shared his thoughts on what was the reason behind making it.
He added: “‘Phir Dhan Te Naan’ is a feeling that emerges inside you. It is catchy, yet brings back memories of the original song, Dhan Te Naan, which was a chartbuster that never lost its charm. It is today Perhaps that is why, initially it was challenging for us to compose ‘Phir Dhan Te Naan’, to think of variations original Tune.”
Vishal Bhardwaj said, “We needed to integrate the two, retaining the originality of the former with the freshness of the latter. Another challenge was that Dhan Te Nan is very precise. That’s why we had to do many meetings, discussions and jamming sessions before finalizing the new version.
‘Phir Dhan Te Naan’ is a recreation of the song ‘Dhan Te Naan’ from Shahid Kapoor’s film ‘Kaminey’. Vishal Bhardwaj says that ‘Dhan Te Naan’ was composed more than a dozen years ago.
“Hence we had to keep in mind that the changes in the new version reflect today’s contemporary beats and music, yet retain its soul. A major decision was to retain the original singers and lyricists – Sukhwinder and Vishal Dadlani, who were again singing Dhan Te Naan and the great Gulzar sahib writing the lyrics.
He added: “We will be forever grateful Flower Garden Saab for helping us in this too. Vishal’s vibrant voice along with Sukhwinder’s humming voice adds magic to our song. It is sensuous, rhythmic and pulsating. Now it’s all over and for all of you to feel the magic.”
Vishal Bhardwaj has composed the music for the song with lyrics by Gulzar. The song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Vishal Dadlani.
Kutty is produced by Luv Ranjan, Vishal Bhardwaj, Ankur Garg and Rekha Bhardwaj under the banner of Luv Films and Vishal Bhardwaj Films and presented by Gulshan Kumar and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series.
