Peace offering to Asha .. Himesh in news again
Himesh Reshammiya offers yet another peace offering to Asha Bhonsle. He will incorporate the song ‘Mehbooba’ in his film instead of using it as a promo video.
Himesh Reshammiya surely knows to how to grab the limelight. After we wrote about Mallika Sherawat being the surprise package in his debut film Aap Ka Surroor, now we hear that the song ‘Mehbooba’, which was supposed to be used as a promotional video, is now a part of the film. The song is a tribute to composer R D Burman and Himesh has incorporated the song in the film to more to pacify Asha Bhonsle, than anything else.
A source from the unit says, “The producer of the film Vijay Taneja had bought the rights of the song ‘Mehbooba’ from Universal and Himesh was supposed to shoot this song with Mallika Sherawat for the promotional video.
Earlier Himesh had gone to Asha Bhonsle and apologised for his comments about R D Burman and Ashaji was kind enough to do the song for him. Now taking another step forward, Himesh has decided to use the song in the film instead.
The song will be shot on a specially designed set in May end. Now the duration of the song will be longer and Ashaji is thrilled with the news. The song will be Himesh’s tribute to R D Burman and Asha Bhonsle, who incidentally were the original singers of the song.”
Himesh says, “It is true that I have decided to incorporate the song in the film now. It was an afterthought. I intend to have a grand picturisation of the song this month in Mumbai.”
Talking about his patch-up with Asha Bhonsle, he says, “Ashaji has a big heart. I apologised to her and she was very sweet to me. She has done a wonderful song for me. I feel honoured that I got an opportunity to sing a classic number ‘Mehbooba’ with her.”
