The original song was picturised with Jeetendra and Sridevi in the eighties
The song Naino Mein Sapna, made
famous by legendary playback singer Kishore Kumar, has been
given a modern makeover by his son Amit in the remake version
of the Jeetendra-Sridevi starrer Himmatwala.
"Re-recording Naino Mein Sapna for me was like being a
part of history. Never before has a song been sung in the same
style rendered by his father 30 years ago," said Sajid Khan,
who is directing the new Himmatwala.
"When Amit started singing it was almost like Kishoreda
had come alive to sing the song for us," he said.
As the filmmakers had the rights to the song so a few
lines from the original have been retained.
Music composer duo Sajid-Wajid have recreated the music
of the chartbuster in sync with today's music. Ajay Devgn and
southern star Tamannaah Bhatia are playing the main leads in
the remake of Himmatwala.
Known as the matka number, the original was picturised
with Jeetendra and Sridevi in the eighties with Lata
Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar lending their voices.
The melodious Shreya Ghoshal has lent her voice for the
female part in the reprise version which released online
