Sajid recreates Kishore Kumar nostalgia for Devgn
Ajay Devgn may be fighting a battle for his Son of Sardaar but as far as his next release Himmatwala is concerned, his friend and director Sajid Khan is ensuring that there is nothing but the best that comes his way. This was evidenced last week when Amit Kumar, son of legendary Kishore Kumar, was brought on board to recreate the late singer's chartbuster track 'Naino Mein Sapna'.
"Since the makers already had right of the song, they could have anyways gone with it as is. However, Sajid felt that it would be a good idea to recreate the era gone by with a similar voice. He was sure though that the singer who was roped in ought to have a similar voice stem as Kishoreda. After much deliberation, the idea struck to have his son Amit himself coming being mike. After all, the very DNA is reason enough to have the much needed stem", informs our source.
Luckily for Sajid and his team, Amit Kumar, who sings rather sparsely, didn't hesitate and agreed to step into his father's shoes. Results were absolutely fantastic since he managed to bring in the kind of maturity that not justified his inclusion but also suited Ajay's personality.
"This is a happy situation for Sajid as well", says a close associate of the director, "For the song 'I Don't Know What To Do' in Housefull, he wanted a voice that 'resembled' Shabbir Kumar and eventually managed to bring the singer himself. Now when he wanted someone to replicate Kishore Kumar, he managed to convince his son. He has been two times lucky."
