Revealed Sridevi’s song for Alia Bhatt in Dear Zindagi

Here is information about Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi which nobody knows so far. To celebrate life—which is what Dear Zindagi is about—Gauri has incorporated the classic Ilaiyaraja song ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le’ from the Kamal HaasanSridevi 1983 starrer Sadma.

Gauri’s husband, the incredibly gifted filmmaker R. Balki has a deep connection with Ilaiyaraja. All his directorial ventures so far from Cheeni Kum to Ki And Ka have contained Ilaiyaraja music. In fact it was Balki who convinced Gauri to incorporate the poignant song ruminating over the vagaries of life from Sadma.

Says Balki, “I cannot think of my cinema without two things, the presence of Amitabh Bachchan and the music of Ilaiyaraja. ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Gala Le’ is one of Raja Sir’s finest Hindi songs so beautifully written by Gulzar Saab. It fitted into Gauri’s film like a hand in glove.”

Interestingly Gauri’s music composer Amit Trivedi who’s done the rest of the score and is known to react strongly to musical intrusions in his music soundtracks, is fine with the incorporation of ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Re’ in Dear Zindagi.

“Not only Balki and Gauri, even I am Ilaiyarajaji’s biggest fan,” says Trivedi.
