DISCLAIMER: THIS POST IS A WORK OF FICTION. I REQUEST YOU NOT TO TAKE THE POINTS MENTIONED HEREIN BELOW SERIOUSLY. WE LOVE OUR CELEBS AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO. I AM SURE ONE POST WILL NOT MAKE YOU HATE THEM (OR ME).
AR - Rahem Man
Me: It is the greatest pleasure to meet you in person sir. I am your big fan. Tell me sir; what was the idea behind tweaking the original tune a bit (?) and coming up with a new one altogether?
ARR: It has been my speciality to do so. Remember our National Anthem that I made for Fame Cinemas? It should ideally be of 52 seconds; but mine is much longer than that! Still people love it. People love me. Anything I make works; so will this. In fact, I may use my part for a Hollywood movie. Another Oscar you see.
Me: You have given your voice for this song. What inspired you to do so?
AB: I have given my voice for almost all the songs of various genres. When the makers of this video heard me singing Himani Boro Plus song – that Swaha! One; they immediately contacted me to sing something similar. I had only one condition – I should be the first one to be featured. They agreed (like they had any other option); and there I was!
Shanky, Ehsy and Lyo
Me: your trio is playing altogether a different tune there. What do you have to say about it?
SEL: We wanted our part to stand out. People say ARR is the best; but we rock. You listen to his part and listen to ours. The national pride song was the best platform to prove that ARR is overrated.
Dipick a Padhu kone
Me: D, i must tell you; you are looking gorgeous in that video. How were you approached for this song but?
D: (Giggling) they did not approach me; I approached them. I asked them to feature Ranbir and me; so that they will get a bit more publicity. Now this is a secret ok – since i am single at the moment; I am hopeful to find somebody for me. There are so many sportsmen, actors and musicians around. I will spread the rumours of my link up first and then break up. It is a great idea to remain in news for a month you see when your movies don’t work.
Shia-mak Dee war
Me: Shia-mak, good to see you after so many years buddy. You are the only person I can ask a direct question to. What is this video all about? And what are you doing there?
S: The makers wanted a bollywood version of this song; that’s the reason all the big names were roped in. But the choreography has turned out amazing. The original song was missing that; and i have successfully created a fusion of classical dance and the western one.
Me: SRK, your part in the song – isn’t it your favourite pose?
SRK: Oh they used it in “Phir Mile Sur” too? No wonder I was invited for this party. I have around hundreds of copies made of that pose. Whenever somebody asks for a guest appearance; I send them a copy. So it is difficult to keep a track. I am sure technology took care of lip sync part too; if there was any.
