Old-time extras back on screen with ‘Mutton song’

Mumbai, April 20 (Calcutta Tube) ‘Mutton song’, an item number from upcoming film ‘Luv Ka The End’, not only has the lead actor grooving to it, but the choreographer has also roped in old-time extras to shake a leg.

‘The song is mad and the casting is special. Everyone is bringing remixes of old songs, but our choreographer for this song, Adil Sheikh, has brought back old back-up dancers. It was great working with them,’ Ashish Patil, head of Y-Films, the youth division of Yash Raj Films told IANS.

Some of the dancers are Bulbul, who featured in ‘Laila o laila’ in ‘Qurbani’ as an African, and Deepak, who danced with Vaijantimala in the song ‘Honthon mein aesi baat’ in ‘Jewel Thief’.

The song, which features Taaha Shah dressed in a ghagra-choli, dancing like a woman, has been composed by Ram Sampath, sung by Krishna Beura and has lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

‘Krishna brings’s soul and spirit to the song. Mostly item songs become gimmics. At a superficial level it is also a gimmick, but it takes a great singer to sing it. I always use singers who can sing. I refuse to use singers who are doctored in the studios,’ said Sampath, adding Krishna has warbled in five different voices for the song.

The song is basically a qawwali with a contemporary twist.

‘Love Ka The End’, releasing May 6, is a romantic comedy starring Shakti Kapoor’s daughter Shraddha Kapoor along with Taaha. The movie has been directed by Bampi.
