Choli ke peechhey kya hai rides again

A R Rahman has reworked the Khal Nayaksmash hit number for Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire.

The controversial chartbuster ‘Choli ke peechhey kya hai’, which the Laxmikant-Pyarelal duo composed for Subhash Ghai’s Khal Nayak, is now part of Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire. Though Pyarelal, the surviving-half of the legendary duo, doesn’t know yet, Subhash Ghai does.
What made Rahman go for the number? Says Rahman, “The song fitted the mood of the film. It represents the frenetic pace, the colour and the swirl that represents the early ‘90s. I have re-recorded it in the same two voices - Alka Yagnik and Ila Arun - though in a totally re-worked form.”

The song will feature in the Slumdog… soundtrack when it releases in December. Why is the soundtrack being released after the release of the film? “As usual we took a little more time on it than we thought we needed to produce the album properly. The soundtrack is being released on December 12,” confesses Rahman, having to live down the reputation of being tardy in delivering the complete score. He’s very excited by the impact that his sounds in Slumdog Millionaire have made on Westerners. “They released it on a small scale and are gradually increasing the prints.”
A R Rahman is obviously very happy about the international success of the film. “The success means something positive for Indian tourism. It has brought India onto the cultural map again.”
Besides the background score Rahman has done four songs in the film. “I’ve also collaborated with the rap artiste Maya. We co-wrote a song called ‘Oh saya’. She wrote the English lyrics. There’s also a version of Shankar Ehsaan Loy’s ‘Aaj ki raat’ in the soundtrack.”
