Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire will feature a remix version of the Khalnayak smash hit Choli Ke Peeche.
In 1993, Choli Ke Peeche created a wave of controversies in Bollywood because of it's suggestive lyrics and choreography. Not only did the song busted music charts, but also made headlines for its controversial lyrics.
More than a decade later, music guru A. R. Rahman has taken up the task of reworking on the track for Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire.
Agencies have quoted Rahman as saying, "The song fitted the mood of the film. It represents the frentic pace, the colour and swirl of the early 90s. I have re-recorded it in the same two voices - Alka Yagnik and Ila Arn - though in a totally re-worked form."
On being asked as to why is the soundtrack of Slumdog Millionaire releasing after the release of the film, Rahman was quoted as saying, "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."
Rahman is excited about the success the film has got abroad.
