Once he realised, what Rohan Sippy, the director of the film, wanted to do with his cult song 'Dum Maaro Dum', which we remember for the retro look and the then-popular-culture of drugs, he was more than happy to give Rohan Sippy the rights to remake it.
The movie Dum Maaro Dum, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu and Rana Daggubatti, will now have the remixed version of the cult classic of the yesteryears. The remixed version of the song, is supposed to be young and contemporary, so that today's generation too can relate to it.
But the big question is who will fill the big shoes of Zeenat Aman who looked stunning in the original version of the song, and carried it with such punch. Lips are sealed and no one is divulging any names. Insider sources claim that some of the top most actresses like Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor are being considered.
The remix of the song is being done by Pritam, and he is presently working quite hard on it. Insiders claim that this song is going to be a scorcher, and is going to be the hottest song of the coming year.
Dev Anand has always been extra possessive about his films and songs. Not exactly forthcoming about any kind of remake that one might want to make. But even Dev Anand knows where his work would be respectably recreated, as he has finally given his blessings to the team of Dum Maaro Dum when Rohan Sippy approached him with the proposal.
