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,” Zeenat told IANS.
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.
