Naman Nitin Mukesh who will be making his grand Bollywood debut has commissioned the recreation of the iconic song “So Gaya Yeh Jahan” from the highest grossing blockbuster of 1988, Tezaab for his maiden film Bypass Road, which has already piqued the audience’s interest with its’ trailer which has crossed over 15 million views.
The song releasing today in association with T-Series was originally composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and sung by Nitin Mukesh while being picturized on Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Chunkey Pandey. The new rendition of the cult classic titled “Dard Ke Lamhe” is composed by Raaj Ashu, written by Shabbir Ahmed, sung by Zubin Nautiyal and programmed by Aditya Dev with a special contribution by iconic playback singer Nitin Mukesh. It will be picturized on the lead protagonist of the film, Neil Nitin Mukesh making an unpredictable admission between a crime scene and a chase sequence.
Nitin Mukesh says, “The song is very relatable and contextual. Good music can connect people to storytelling in a magical way and audiences will be able to connect Bypass Road with So Gaya Yeh Jahan not just provisionally today but for years to come.”
Neil Nitin Mukesh states, “This was the only song that came to my mind when we were rummaging through archives to find a song well suited with the theme of our film. It literally does poetic justice to the plot of the film. It’s used as a situational scene song where the lyrics match the screenplay effortlessly, without giving away the climax.”
Naman Nitin Mukesh adds, “Infact during the development stage we didn’t want to take undue advantage of our lineage so we didn’t enlist any Mukesh song under the referral list but everyone in the team unanimously suggested this track. We took close to 6 months to finetune it since we apprehended that my father would disapprove any sort of recreation. However the minute he heard the first scratch, he jumped with delight and gave us the nod.”
Bypass Road produced by Miraj Group and NNM Films will release on 1st November 2019. Directed by Naman Nitin Mukesh, the film stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Adah Sharma, Shama Sikander, Gul Panag and Rajit Kapur
