Zeenat Aman might not be happy with the new version of her cult song Dum maaro dum, but the veteran actress is quite satisfied with the neo-age version of Laila o laila and is going all out to lend her support to it.
The famous song from the 1980 film Qurbani has been re-arranged for the film Chalo Dilli, which is actress Lara Dutta’s first home production.
‘I liked the song when I heard it. They have retained the original version and at the same time have given the song a new flavour. It’s got a rustic, ethnic feel and I liked it a lot. So I’m supporting it,’ said Zeenat.
The new version has been picturised on Yana Gupta and the 31-year-old is extremely happy to be a part of such a cult song.
Yana said: ‘I was extremely excited to do this song because it’s fantastic. I’m just honoured to do Zeenatji’s song. I think people will like it.
Yana said she was very happy that Zeenat gave her support for the song. ‘It’s a big deal for me,’ she said.
‘I saw the video of the original song a couple of times and saw the style that Zeenat ji used in the song. But I didn’t copy her as I thought of doing it my own way because the song is very different,’ she added. Agencies
