New Delhi: ‘Palat' song from David Dhawan's ‘Main Tera Hero' has become the chartbuster featuring our hero Varun Dhawan trying to ‘patao' our heroine Ileana Dcruz. But do you know the song is inspired by RD Burban's evergreen track 'Jahan Teri Yeh nazar hain' from 1971 hit Kaalia starring Amitabh Bachchan.
The composers of Palat, Sajid Wajid are ardent fans of RD Burman, and worship his style of music. Sajid has accompanied his father to various R D Burmans concerts too.
When asked the composer Sajid about this resemblance he said " it was not a conscious attempt, but I,ve been a huge fan of RD Burman .As I kid I have grown up to hear his music. I won't deny any influence in our work, but I'm not sure to what extent it goes. The lyrics and the vibe of the song are similar, some people have called to say that to us. But the tune is different. The roots of all contemporary music can be traced to a composition of yesteryear. You cannot help it when subconsciously someone's work creeps into yours".
According to wajid, a musician has a limitation of working on seven notes ," There are only saat surs in music. There's only so much Hera pheri that you can do to make a song refreshingly different."
Well, with all said and done, we love the song and will stick by it. !!!
Directed by David Dhawan, Main Tera Hero which stars Varun Dhawan, Ileana Dcruz and Nargis Fakhri in lead roles, is set to release on 4th April this year.
