‘The Muppets’ take over Bollywood, use song from Amitabh Bachchan film
After the TV show Glee used Salman Khan’s Character dheela in its trailer, it’s a Walt Disney movie that is coming home to Bollywood
Walt Disney Studios’ film The Muppets, releasing on November 25, 2011 and starring Jason Segel and Adams, is the latest to have been bitten by the Bollywood bug. The latest trailer shows ‘The Muppets taking over Bollywood’, spoofing a song from Amitabh Bachchan’s film Aks. The song, Rabba rabba, was quite popular during the film’s release in 2001. It was rendered by Sukhwinder Singh and Vasundhara Das, and picturised on Bachchan, Raveena Tandon and Manoj Bajpai. Only Sukhwinder’s voice has been used in The Muppets. But with so many popular Bollywood numbers, we wonder why the one with Sukhwinder’s voice was used. Is it because he is more familiar to Hollywood owing to Jai ho? Possible.
