Shah Rukh’s tribute to stars of yore

Aditya Chopra is leaving no stone unturned to make his ambitious film, the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer, Rab ne Bana Di Jodi, a grand success. Aditya Chopra has recorded an 11-minute song in the film for one important sequence that will have Sonu Niggaam paying tribute to five yesteryear stars.

Our source says, “Aditya has recorded an 11-minute song in the film which show cases the style of five different generations in one single song. The song tracks the journey from 1950s to the ’90s to the present era and will be picturised on Shah Rukh Khan. Adi had reached a dead end with the song, and had almost scrapped it, when he thought of Sonu.

The specialty of the song? It’s a tribute by SRK to stalwarts like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna and Rishi Kapoor.

Music composers Salim-Suleiman and lyricist Jaideep Sahni were asked to compose the song which would have the first line of the most famous numbers by these romantic icons – involving songs sung by singers like Mukesh, Rafi, Kishore and Jolly Mukherjee. Ranging from the ’50s to the ’90s, the voice had to encompass the spirit of the old and the new equally, and Sonu was the only option. Apparently, Sonu, who was travelling extensively, obliged to rehearse thrice and work on the song and then finally sang in less than 45 minutes. Sonu Niggaam remained unavailable for comment.
