Ash's song stuck in Action Replay!
If it’s the Bachchan bahu, it has to be special. That’s what Vipul Shah seems to believe while judging the song to be picturised on
Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Action Replay.
He has rejected music director Pritam’s song as many as three times. Pritam and the lyricists Irshad-Kamil (who have written songs for Love Aaj Kal) are working on it for the fourth time.
As Vipul Shah’s shooting schedule of Action Replay has been delayed, the trio has got sufficient time. Else, Vipul may not have had a choice but to select one version from those three. The trio has only cracked three out of the seven songs needed for the film. Still composer Pritam is burning the midnight oil in near-panic, as the shooting dates loom closer. Inspiration is yet to strike despite the fact that he spent a month holed up in Khandala.
The trio tried to convey their viewpoint to Vipul, but the director was not convinced. Vipul said, “It is Aishwarya’s entry scene and I want it to be special.”
Is Aishwarya rejecting the song? The source said, “No, Aishwarya hasn’t heard the song yet. Only after Vipul finalises the song, she will hear it.”
Pritam too confirmed the story. He said, “The mounting of this particular set which will showcase the song is so big that you need to have a sure-shot hit. Moreover, I am working with Aishwarya after a long time. Last I did Dhoom 2 with her. Action Replay songs are all based in the 70s era. And I have to make modern songs with a retro feel to appeal to today’s youth. That’s why it is taking so long.”
The shooting was scheduled for April/May, but has now been pushed to August/September.
We hope that the trio gets it right the fourth time!
