Son Tiger to dance to father Jackie Shroff's tunes

Monday, March 31, 2014 • Hindi Comments

Now that’s what we call - Dancing to one’s tunes, literally. Yeah beta Tiger Shroff, who is going to make his screen debut with ‘Heropanti’, will have his dad Jackie Shroff’s musical charm in the film.

Buzz is that the signature tune of the Jackie Shroff starrer, ‘Hero’, has been contemporised for his son, Tiger Shroff's debut film, ‘Heropanti’.  The very famous tune, a melody played on the flute in hero has been taken from ‘Hero’ and since Heropanti is set in the modern time, the tune has been modernized. According to our sources, the cult tune which is also known as "Whistle", has been incorporated in a song from ‘Heropanti’ titled, "Mere Naal Whistle Bajao"

"We wanted to use the melody played on the flute in Hero and had acquired the rights from Sa Re Ga Ma. But since Heropanti revolves around a new pair (Tiger and Kriti Sanon), it had to be modern while resonating with the Hero generation," stated director Sabbir Khan.

When the idea propped up with Sajid Nadiadwala who is producing the film, he was very upbeat about the collaboration of the tune. What’s more - It being Jackie Shroff’s music from his debut film and Tiger will be debuting with ‘Heropanti’, becomes of higher significance.

The entire team is very elated by the way this has worked out and they are keen to know how Jackie Shroff will be reacting to the song. "The original Hero tune is all melody, this one is peppier. Even Tiger, who was overwhelmed at the thought of using his father's cult song, is happy with Manj's spin and the way the song has been shot," added Sabbir. "I'm now waiting to see Jackie's reaction."

Well, we all are waiting for it...

Stay tuned...
