Vidya Balan to pay a TRIBUTE to Sridevi by recreating ‘Hawa Hawai’ in ‘Tumhari Sulu’ – Vidya will be seen as a radio jockey in ‘Tumhari Sulu’
Guess who’s going to recreate Sridevi’s chart-buster Hawa Hawai after 20 years? It’s Vidya Balan who is going to step into the shoes of Sridevi and groove to the blockbuster song in her upcoming flick, Tumhari Sulu.
It is produced by T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment and the iconic number is being recreated by Tanishk Bagchi, known for giving contemporary touch to 1990s hit songs like Humma Humma and Tamma Tamma. The makers felt that instead of getting the track re-sung by a new voice, it would be wise to retain Kavita Krishnamurthy’s voice, as the track was synonymous with her unique vocals. Rajeev Surti is to choreograph the track in June.
Director, Suresh Triveni was quoted in a conversation with IANS as saying, “I am elated to have such a cult number in the film. It plays a key role in the film and is not just a remix for the end credits. Our intention is to pay a true tribute to the original and revive it in its full glory. I am looking forward to the flower power team of Vidya and Neha (Dhupia) to break a leg.”
Tumhari Sulu is slated to release worldwide on December 1 this year.
