A year and a half ago, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham – the desi boyz – had burnt the dance floor with the chartbuster number Tainu Main Love Karda. Circa 2013 and it is Vinay Pathak’s turn to do the same, albeit for an altogether different reason. In a Jagrata, he is assembling devotees to pay their respect to Shera Waali Maa with Tain Main Love Karda .
“For his film Bajatey Raho, director Shashant Shah has envisaged loot in the house of the prime antagonist Ravi Kissen. To make it innovative, he designed this sequence where Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Tusshar Kapoor and Vishakha Singh enter a Jagrata, a popular religious phenomenon up North. While Vinay keeps everyone busy with his songs, other execute the grand loot by impersonating caterers and choreographer,” informs a source.
Since the scene was designed to be as funny as it gets, the team brainstormed on many options. Eventually it was decided that a film song would be brought into picture since many devotional songs in a ‘Jagrata’ are based on popular Bollywood tracks.
“This is when we came up with the idea of Tainu Main Love Karda,” says Shashant, “Since the song can fit in for a romantic as well as devotional situation by merely altering a few words, it was an easy fit too. Moreover, since the film’s producer Krishika Lulla had helmed Desi Boys too, there were no issues from the song sourcing perspective either. Audience would be in splits during the sequence since Vinay is plain natural as a Jagrata singer and the song takes care of the rest.”
Bajatey Raho is produced jointly by Eros International and MSM Motion Pictures. The film is set to release on the 26th of July.
