Some more casting has been put to place for Ram Gopal Varma's Sholay. Choreographer turned singer Ganesh Hedge will compose and choreograph the song Mehbooba Mehbooba for the film. Earlier Himesh was to compose the same track and like his numerous music video appearances, was also set to make an appearance in the item song playing the role of Jalal Agha.
However things seem to have changed now with RGV roping in Ganesh Hegde. Varma wanted Himesh to do the film but the music director is quite busy with his international shows. Meanwhile Ganesh Hegde composed his version of the song adding old elements and incorporating new portions to it too, which Varma liked. Ganesh and RGV are now planning to shoot the song in five to six different parts of the world. Ganesh Hegde had earlier choreographed songs like Khallas and Kambakth Ishq for Ramu.
Meanwhile, Asha Bhosle, who was originally supposed to sing the song, has been replaced by Sunidhi Chauhan now. Interestingly both the singers were unaware about the other's involvement with the song. Sukhwinder Singh is Sunidhi's male counterpart.
