Singer Payal Dev prefers to avoid recreating music, but when she tried her hand at the job recently with an old pop hit, she realised regenerating the magic of a popular number was indeed challenging.
Payal has recreated the Mika Singh hit of the late nineties, “Sawan mein lag gayi aag” for the upcoming rom-com “Ginny Weds Sunny“.
“I usually avoid recreating old songs but the film’s Vinod Bachchanji gave me this responsibility of recreating ‘Sawan mein lag gayi aag’ in a new form and present it in the film, it was a big task for me to regenerate the same magic in this iconic number. It was challenging,” Payal said.
The original song was sung by Mika who returns to sing the recreated version with Neha Kakkar and Badshah. Payal has composed the track filmed on Vikrant Massey and Yami Gautam in “Ginny Weds Sunny”.
Earlier talking about the song and collaborating with Mika, Payal Dev said, “Collaborating with Mika Singh, Badshah and Neha Kakkar for a fun party track was amazing. All the three artists bring their unique touch to the song, making it a wholesome party number. I’m very excited about the song’s release. It is packed with entertainment and vibrant ambience,” she said.
Added Mika: “I was happy to work with such talented artistes. Everyone involved with the creation of this song wants the listeners to enjoy and be entertained.”
