Will Ranbir Kapoor beat Amitabh Bachchan at ‘Jumma chumma’?
The Kapoor lad is all to set to shake a leg with Deepika Padukone on the chartbuster from 1991 film Hum
When Big B arrived on the big screen lisping Jumma chumma to woo the voluptuous Kimi Katkar, the audience went berserk. The year was 1991 and the famous number from Mukul Anand’s film Hum, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth and Govinda, became an instant rage. And now we hear that Ranbir Kapoor is gearing up to create the magic of the original Jumma chumma by giving the song his own charming spin, in Kapoor’s upcoming film Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani. Ranbir will entice Deepika Padukone, his real life ex-flame, in the new number.
Interestingly, the original song was supposed to be sung by Amitabh Bachchan, but Big B later thought it would be wise to get the number sung by Sudesh Bhosle given Jumma chumma’s high-pitched notes. Sudesh delivered an ultimate hit and his effort was beautifully complimented by Kavita Krishnamurthy.
But unlike Amitabh, Bollywood’s young chocolate boy Ranbir is excited to lend his voice to the song. Will the 29-year-old actor manage to recreate the hysteria of the original song? BollywoodLifers, what do you think?
