Bollywood superstar Salman Khan on Friday (June 20) unveiled “Jumme ki raat” from his forthcoming film “Kick“, and said that the song is not similar to ‘Jumma chumma dede’, which he really enjoys watching.
“Jumma chumma dede” is a song from 1991 multi-starrer “Hum” and the chartbuster was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Kimi Katkar.
When asked is the song similar to “Jumma chumma dede”, Salman Khan said: “I knew this…I knew somebody would come up with this question. Whenever this Amitabh Bachchan song comes on TV, I enjoy it. I watch the entire song.”
But he added that “Jumme ki raat” “has been shot differently. The song has been choreographed by Ahmed Khan,” he added.
The superstar will be seen letting his hair down in the track. Himesh Reshammiya, who has composed “Jumme ki raat”, feels that it’s not fair to compare his number with “Jumma”.
He said “Jumma” came over 20 years ago and that his “Jumme ki raat” is a “different song”. “We hope it will be the biggest youth anthem,” he added.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut “Kick” also features Jacqueline Fernandez in the female lead. It is being readied for Eid release.
