Pakistani pop legend Hassan Jahangir’s hit ’80s track, “Hawa Hawa”, is also making a comeback in Anees Bazmee’s upcoming wedding-comedy, Mubarakan. The rights to the album which sold 15 million copies in India alone, were with T-Series, which also has the music rights to Anees’s film. Rewritten by Kumaar and choreographed by Bosco Martis, the new song features Arjun Kapoor trying to placate his onscreen girlfriend Ileana D’Cruz after a lovers’ tiff.
“It’s a naughty, groovy song shot in a grand, colourful set-up,” Anees told Mirror, admitting that they had originally planned to film it on the streets of Chandigarh but found it difficult to co-ordinate over 200 extras and a large dance set-up. “It would mean blocking an entire street. So instead we built a set in Film City studio.”
The film features Arjun in a double role, with Anil Kapoor as chachu to both.
