Karan Jo­har’s Dhadak — the re­make of Marathi film Sairat (2016) fea­tures Ishaan Khat­ter and Jan­hvi Kapoor repris­ing the lead roles of Akash Thosar and Rinky Ra­jguru. Sairat was crit­i­cally ac­claimed and a box-of­fice hit. The song Zin­gaat from the film, be­came ex­tremely pop­u­lar and when the Hindi re­make of the film was be­ing made by Shashank Khai­tan, it was de­cided that the song would be part of the project. Jo­har was clear that he wanted to re­tain this song in Dhadak so he got mu­sic com­poser duo Ajay-atul to work on this, and lyri­cist Amitabh Bhat­tacharya rewrote the lyrics. Talking about it, Ajay says, “When we wrote this for Sairat, we knew Zin­gaat would be­come ex­tremely pop­u­lar in Ma­ha­rash­tra be­cause of the tempo, rhythm and catchy lyrics. In the Marathi ver­sion, the cho­rus was in English and for the Hindi ver­sion; we have added a bit of Ra­jasthani style of mu­sic.” Re­it­er­at­ing that, Atul says that they were sure Bhat­tacharya would do a good job with the Hindi ver­sion. “We are very happy with the Hindi ver­sion too, be­cause we were con­fi­dent that he would write well. Amitabh knows how to make it sound right and put it all to­gether.” Bhat­tacharya says, “Rewrit­ing Zin­gaat in Hindi was a bit of a chal­lenge be­cause the orig­i­nal song is still very fresh and has reached a cult fol­low­ing. It did not make sense to re­place the word Zin­gaat so we re­tained it and rewrote the rest of the song in Hindi. I have tried my best to make it fun. I hope this one too, res­onates with the au­di­ence” Khai­tan was ec­static to get Farah Khan on board who has chore­ographed this peppy num­ber. The song launches to­day at 12.30pm. Pro­duced by Karan Jo­har, Zee Stu­dios, Hiroo Yash Jo­har and Apoorva Mehta, Dhadak is slated to re­lease on July 20.
