Recreations are the order of the day today. Just when you thought only high octane, dance numbers from yesteryears were deemed fit to be served in a new avatar, T-Series has released Tuhje Paane Ko, a recreated version of a soft, lyrical ballad from Sonu Nigam’s old album Jaan.
This reprised version is sung as a duet by T-Series artist Jubin Nautiyal and Neeti Mohan. Manoj Muntashir has recreated the lyrics and Abhijit Waghani has recreated the music. Shot amidst the lush green landscape of Alibaug, the sensuous video features popular TV actor Shalin Bhanot and model and actress Priyanka Agrawal and is directed by Luv R Isrrani.
The song captures a day in the life of a divorced couple who meet again after some time and how this leads to a natural progression of intimacy between them.
Isrrani said, “We had a brilliant experience of shooting the song. Even though things got chaotic because of the heavy rain we still managed to shoot it sufficiently well. The isolated bungalow amidst the greenery of Alibaug helped us in getting the mood right. The visuals of the rain added to the romance in the song.”
Singer Neeti Mohan, recalling her experience and said, “Tujhe Paane Ko instantly took me back to an era when I used to listen to Sonu Nigamji a lot. I really enjoyed singing it because it was a modern take on the same melody. It’s a very loungy kind of track, yet very sensual and intimate kind of song. When we heard the final product we really liked it. I think people will play it in their cars, people will hear it on radio and they will have it on their phones. Whenever they would be travelling, they will be listening to this and forwarding it to their loved ones also.”
Singer Jubin Nautiyal said, “It is a new age take to the ‘90s sound. Abhijit Vaghani is a brilliant music producer. After doing a great collaboration in the MixTape series, we are coming with something special in Tujhe Paane Ko. The cherry on the cake is my favorite female voice of present time -- Neeti Mohan.”
Actor Priyanka Agrawal who features in the video said,, “I always wanted to feature in a T-Series music video and then it happened suddenly. It was a superb experience to film this romantic song sung by my favourite singer Jubin Nautiyal. I remember shooting for the video towards the end of July. Since it was raining heavily, we had to cancel certain outdoor shots but what we achieved indoors has also turned out really nice. I hope viewers will like the work that we have put in.”
Lead actor Shalin Bhanot, sounding gung-ho about working for the first time with T-Series said, “There were many reasons for me to do this video. Firstly, I was getting an opportunity to be a part of the largest YouTube Channel in the world. Secondly, the director is an old friend of mine. I am a huge fan of Sonu Nigam and this song is a reprised version of a beautiful Sonu Nigam song. Thirdly, Jubin has an amazing, soulful voice. In fact, two days before I was offered this video, I was humming his song Chitthi. So, it’s divine intervention that I should get a part in a music video where I get to enact something sung by him.”
