According to Lara Dutta, her next movie Challo Dilli with Vinay Pathak will have the remix of the famous Zeenat Amaan’s song Laila O Laila and Yana Gupta will be grooving to the beats in the remix. She also said that it was her husband Mahesh’s idea to get the song in the movie and get Yana to dance on it.
Lara clarified, ” We needed a song in the film that had a bit of masti and was based on a woman. Mahesh loved the movie Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and my character was Laila in the film. So it was his idea that we should get Laila and remix it. Yana is doing an item song Laila O Laila in the film. No one except Yana was approached.”
She also said that though it was not a tribute to Zeenat Aman, she was kept in the loop regarding the song and she has liked what she heard. The movie stars Lara Dutta and Vinay Pathak and it is being directed by the Dasvidaniya director Shashant Shah.
It is being produced by Eros international in association with Big Daddy productions which is owned by Mahesh Bhupati’s Globosport and Lara Dutta’s Bheegi Basanti.
