Zee TV recently returned with its most coveted, longest running singing reality show, which remains relevant to music lovers across the country – Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2021. While all the performances of the contestants took the judges by surprise, it was Ananya’s performance in one of Urmila Matondkar’s most iconic songs, ‘Chamma Chamma’, that set everyone apart. In fact, it also made Aditya Narayan and Urmila Matondkar indifferent.
While Aditya Narayan mentioned how he was such a big fan of the song, Urmila also shared some anecdotes about the film. She mentioned how she had to wear extremely heavy jewelery weighing around 15 kilograms for the Banjaran look in the song and in fact, she didn’t even have enough time to rehearse with it. but it’s not like that; She also revealed that she was uncomfortable wearing the entire song set. Still, the actress delivered a flawless performance on screen.
Talking about the song, Urmila said, “Your performance was amazing. Interestingly, it reminded me of an incident when we were shooting for it. When we did a look test for this particular song, Rajkumar Santoshi sir asked me if this jewelery was too much to handle. He also asked me if I would like to change up a bit or maybe reduce some of the ornaments as he was not keen on changing the steps of the song. However, I told him that I will manage the jewelry as it is really important to maintain the banjaran look in the song.”
She continued, “Just one night before the shoot, I was told about the steps and everything and I was not ready to shoot the song the next day. However, I still went ahead and went ahead with what happened during the first shot of the song. The earrings I was wearing hurt me badly, I still remember it very clearly. And when the shoot was over, I could see so many scratches on my body that I can’t even tell you the issue. It is that we worked so hard to make this song, which is now one of the most iconic songs and we were so happy that all our hard work paid off!”
While Urmila’s revelation took everyone by surprise, wait to see the stellar performances of the top 7 contestants of ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ on Sunday at 9 pm only on Zee TV.
