Diljit, Badshah jamming for something new?
Mumbai–Actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh and star rapper Badshah were spotted together at a recording studio here, sparking rumours that they may be working on a collaboration.
It’s likely that they were jamming together for a new track, a source said.
If it’s the case, it would be after four years that Diljit and Badshah will reunite. Their last album was “Proper Patola”.
Now whether their new collaboration is for a film or an album they are doing together or their preparation for a possible stage show or tour they maybe doing together, remains to be seen.
Tanishk Bagchi took a nod from Bappi da before ‘Tamma tamma’
Right before composer Tanishk Bagchi got down to composing the new “Tamma tamma” track, he spoke to its original composer Bappi Lahiri for an approval.
“I’m glad Bappi da, Madhuri ma’am (Madhuri Dixit) and everyone has liked the new song. And I couldn’t have started working on it without having spoken to Bappi da once,” Bagchi said in a statement.
“I called him before I started work on the song and he was really excited to bring back the song which till date people remember for its great music and stylisation of the video,” he said.
The new version of “Tamma tamma” features in “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”.
This is not the first time Bagchi has worked on recreating a song. He last worked on “Humma humma”.
‘… Wasseypur’ was best training ground: Richa Chadha
Actress Richa Chadha, who has had a successful innings in Hindi cinema, says Anurag Kashyap’s “Gangs Of Wasseypur” — which saw her in a powerful supporting role as Nagma Khatoon — says the movie turned out to be a great training ground.
The two-part film is back for a special release via 1018mb.com — a web-platform that lets the audience choose the movies that play at their local theatre — and is being screened on public demand on February 19 at select theatres in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi and Bengaluru.
Talking about it, Richa said in a statement: “I am so happy that the audience have imprinted this film in their minds. ‘…Wasseypur’ literally gave me a superlative recognition and it was the best training ground for any actor.
“This initiative to host the screening of both the parts together I think is absolutely genius, and I am glad it has had a great response from everyone.”
The movie also features acclaimed actors like Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Richa Chadha.
