The Jai Ho star feels very proud that people are comparing his Jumme ki raat to the immortal Big B track
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has denied that there is any similarity between Jumme ki raat song from his upcoming film Kick and megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s popular number Jumma chumma dede from 1991 movie Hum. The word Jumma draws attention to the popular song from the action-drama, which featured Bachchan and heroine Kimi Katkar.
The 48-year-old actor, who unveiled the first look of the song Jumme ki raat, however, said the similarity ends with the word jumma. “I knew this question will be asked. I am a big fan of Jumma chumma dede. Whenever the song comes on TV, I watch the whole number. But my song is shot differently. It is choreographed by Ahmed Khan. It is difficult to make me dance,” said Salman about his upcoming Eid release.
Penned by Kumaar and Shabbir Ahmed, song is sung by Mika Singh, Palak Muchhal and composed by Himesh Reshammiya. “Only the word jumma is common in the song and the tune is different,” Reshammiya said, adding they are hoping the song becomes the biggest party anthem this Eid. Salman revealed that the other songs of the film will be out soon. “This song was ready, so we showed it to you all. We are also shooting for another song called Hangover..,” he said. Kick marks Salman’s annual ‘Eid release’, which has been lucky for him as his previous hits Bodyguard, Dabangg and Dabangg 2 opened on Eid in the past.
On being asked what gives Salman ‘kick’ in real life, the actor said said, “There are lots of things that give me kick. Like when someone tries to show me down and I prove that person wrong. The enthusiasm, the kick that you get, pushes you to go up again. When someone praises me, I feel I should work more, so that I am praised more.” Salman’s scores of fans were present at the song launch event, which also comprised female fans who were seen shouting ‘Salman we love you’. “I want to become ‘bhai’ and you all are saying no (pointing towards female fans). So it is decided…. I am bhai for boys and for my four sisters (two real and two rakhi sisters),” the actor said.
