VOTE: Is the spanking new Naino Mein Sapna better?
Director Sajid Khan got Amit to re-record the chartbuster track in the new version of the film that was originally sung by his father alongside Lata Mangeshkar.
Choreographer Farah Khan and music directors Sajid-Wajid have recreated the 80s magic with Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah.
The song showcases a colorful kaleidoscope of pots, larger than life swans and dhols with many dancers in the background quite like the original.
"We wanted to recreate the magic of Naino Mein Sapna song. The original was sung by a legend for the male version..so we wanted someone who can do justice to the iconic song," Sajid told PTI.
"Amit's voice is too good. I feel no one except Amit could have sung 'Naino Mein Sapna'. He has sung exactly like Kishore Kumarji," he added.
Shreya Ghoshal was chosen for the female voice. As the makers already had the rights to the song, they have retained first few lines from the original. Sajid-Wajid have given the music.
Himmatwala is the remake of the yesteryear's superhit film of the same name, starring Sridevi and Jeetendra. The new one stars southern star Tamanna Bhatia and Ajay Devgn.
