The disco song from Sajid Khan’s next has Sonakshi reliving Sridevi and Parveen Babi’s look from their yesteryear chartbuster songs, but wethinks it also has a striking resemblance to Reena Roy’s disco song, Disco station
Impressed with Sonakshi Sinha’s dancing prowess in Go Go Govinda in OMG! Oh My God, Sajid Khan decided to cash in on her popularity and get her on board for the special disco number Thank god it’s Friday in his Ajay Devgn-Tamannaah starrer, Himmatwala. Aiming to do something hatke with this song, Sajid came up with a unique idea – to give Ms Sinha the look of two popular female stars – Sridevi and Parveen Babi. The first avatar of Sonakshi sees her sporting a vintage sequined golden dress and headband which strikingly resembles Parveen Babi’s look in Pyaar karne wale from the movie Shaan, and the other, where she is wearing tight black pants, jacket and boots is inspired by Sridevi’s disco look in Chaalbaaz.
Well, that’s really cool, Sajid! But being a huge film buff, we are sure you will recollect Reena Roy’s look too from her popular disco song Disco station from the 1982 movie Hathkadi. Sonakshi’s shining silver headband (besides her infectious smile!) instantly reminds us of Reena Roy who wore a similar band in her disco song. Don’t take us wrong, Sajid and Sonakshi! We really like your song and appreciate your efforts to do something different; it’s just that the similarity between the two songs is so evident that we thought of informing our dear readers. So guys, have a glimpse at this number and Sonakshi’s 80s look, and we are sure Thank God it’s Friday will be nothing less than a firecracker!
