Another day, another recreation… will Elli pull off a Nora?
Elli AvrRam is all ready to scorch YouTube with some killer moves, via The Dance Project by Sony Music. Soon after, she is all set to be seen in Bollywood film Fraud Saiyaan’s Chamma Chamma recreation. The original chartbuster featured Urmila Matondkar in Rajkumar Santoshi’s 1998 film China Gate.
No prizes for guessing the composer’s name: it’s Tanishk Bagchi yet again! The song will feature Arshad Warsi and Saurabh Shukla along with Elli. Romi, Arun and Neha Kakkar lend their voice to the song, which also features rap by Ikka. Adil Sheikh has directed and choreographed the song. The shoot went underway at a Mumbai studio a couple of days ago.
When asked to comment on her part in the song, Elli said, “I love the song and adored Urmila Matondkar in it. It’s a epic one and I hope I can match Urmilas energy and enigma in the remake.”
According to Adil, the song will be desi with a dash of goth. “Elli will be surrounded by a lot of back-up dancers, just like in the original,” he added.
Kumar Taurani of Tips who has the original rights to the song and also have the music for Fraud Saiyaan shares, “Chamma Chamma is an iconic song and we are glad that its recreation just like the original has received an outstanding and positive response! We are happy that we got an opportunity through Fraud Saiyaan to re-introduce the song to the newer generation and give this experience to the loyal music listeners as well.”
Fraud Saiyaan is all set for a theatrical release on January 18, 2019.>
