One of the most popular songs from 1991’s iconic film ‘Saajan’—with equally mesmerizing songs—‘Mera Dil Bhi Kitna Pagal Hai’ will now be recreated for the digital space.
The revamped version, to be sung by Mamta Sharma of ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ and ‘Fevicol Se’ fame, will be released on leadng digital stores on August 5, reports say.
It so happened that Venus Music—from the Venus Worldwide conglomerate—was acquired by leading Paris based digital company Believe in 2019. As part of this 100% acquisition Venus Music is now rebranded as Ishtar. The 2019 acquisition covers all music rights of Venus Music which has a strong catalog of non-film music as well as Bollywood film music and entails categories such as regional, pop, classical, ghazals, qawwalis, devotional and instrumental. As part of this strategic move, Venus Music will now not be limited to dominance in the domestic circles but will also parallelly enjoy global leverage through Believe’s extensive international affiliations.
Titled ‘Mera Dil Bhi Kitna Pagal Hai’, the revamped track released on an YouTube channel and all leading digital stores on 5th August 2021. The track is a reprised version of the original song from the 1991 super-hit romantic drama ‘Saajan’ that featured Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt. Popular television actor Shaheer N Sheikh and singer Mamta Sharma will share screen space in the music video of the reprised track which has been directed by Ashraf Ali.
Singer Mamta Sharma was quoted as saying, “My new release is a recreation of the iconic song ‘Mera Dil Bhi Kitna Pagal Hai’ from the movie Saajan, which was released 30 years ago and still continues to hold such a memorable spot in all our hearts. Being an avid Madhuri Dixit fan, this is a project that is very close to my heart and is my humble ode to her legacy. I had a great time putting this project together. Shaheer is extremely hardworking, humble and cooperative. Bad-Ash has done a flawless job with the lyrics while Ashraf Ali has brilliantly captured the essence of the track in the video. I hope the listeners love this recreated version of the track.”
Shaheer N Sheikh reportedly added, “I had a great time shooting the video with Mamta Sharma as the song is one of my personal favorites. A song which was released 3 decades ago gave ‘romance’ a whole new meaning at that time and till today, it lives on in our hearts! I remember watching the film for the first time and I totally fell in love with the on-screen characters. Mamta and I have tried to capture every sentiment attached with the song, recreating this popular track from Saajan and hope our fans will appreciate the effort.”
