Mumbai, January 27 (CINEWS): She said she might want to come to Chennai and practice for the tune. The sheer motivational force of Rang De Basanti, which finishes 10 years on January 26, Rakeysh Mehra says, originated from the general population who offered him some assistance with creating the film.
“The motivation originated from every one of the general population included really taking shape of RDB. The film has a place to me as well as everybody who had faith in it. My wife Bharathi who altered the film, gave my contemplations a shape, A.R. Rahman whose music was an extraordinary wellspring of motivation and Aamir Khan who completely trusted in the film.”
In any case, the greater part of all, Mehra recollects Lata Mangeshkar as the power that persuaded the film.
“It was 2004 when we requested that Lataji sing the melody Lukka Chuppi. We required the voice of the Endless Mother. It must be her, and no one else. When she at long last consented to do the tune we were calmed and upbeat.”
Rakeysh proceeds with, “She said she might want to come to Chennai and practice for the melody. We were dazed. Lataji, the Bharat Ratna, the one-lady amusement industry and the voice behind the best performing artists, with her 60 years of singing background, needed to practice! I surmise that is the thing that inspired us the most.”
Rakeysh recollects everything about the recording. “On August 11, 2004 she remained in Rahman’s studio and sang Lukka Chuppi for a recording of six hours”.
“Would you be able to envision, Lataji at 75 years old, stood and sang for six continuous hours! For another chief who was simply beginning in life this was a gigantically rousing occasion. So yes, I’d say Lataji is the greatest power behind RDB.”
