There's nothing new about old songs being recreated and used in films. After Tamma Tamma, Chin Chin Choo, we now have Urmila Matondkar's blockbuster song, Chamma Chamma from Rajkumar Santoshi's film China Town being remade. The song is to be recreated for Prakash Jha's production venture, Fraud Saiyyan. The film has been directed by Sourabh Srivastava and features Arshad Warsi and Sara Loren in lead roles. Kumar Taurani, who has the rights of the original song, confirmed the same to Mumbai Mirror.
"Prakash ji recently showed us all the songs from his film and there was a situation where a dance number was required. He selected Chamma Chamma. We have roped in Tanishk Bagchi to recreate the song for him. Tanishk is known to work his magic on retro tracks. We should have the new version ready by the weekend," said Taurani. While the song is sure to be made, the actress, who will feature in the same, is yet to be finalised. To this the producer went on to add, "We are speaking to known actresses and should finalise one shortly. The song will be shot in the next 10-12 days." It remains to be seen if the makers are able to do justice to the original one, composed by Anu Malik and sung by Sapna Singh, or not.
Talking about the script of the film, Sara, who is the leading lady of Fraud Saiyyan, had earlier told The Indian Express, "I am playing the lead in Fraud Saiyyan and although I cannot reveal anything about my role, I must mention that the script is very funny and interesting."
