New Delhi, Aug 23: Remember the song ‘Khatoon ki khidmat mein salaam apun ka’ from 1982 film ‘Desh Premee’ in which megastar Amitabh Bachchan tried to woo Hema Malini in the garb of a coconut seller? Actor Shreyas Talpade has recreated Big B’s look for his upcoming comedy ‘Hum Tum Shabana’.
Shreyas’ look has been styled on Amitabh’s costume, and he has donned a toothbrush moustache too! The film is a love triangle about the rivalry between two men – Shreyas and Tusshar Kapoor – to woo the same girl.
‘The song is the fun title track of the film called ‘Hey na Shabana’ wherein Minissha Lamba is angry at the two men and they are trying to woo her! In the process they do anything and everything…so we had an idea to style the song using Bollywood’s cult images. That led to Shreyas being dressed as Mr. Bachchan’s cult coconut seller avatar in ‘Desh Premee’, as the song was shot on a beach,’ producer Sunil Chainani of Horseshoe Pictures said in a press statement.
‘Shreyas does all sorts of comic antics to woo Minissha as Mr. Bachchan tried in the film for Hema Malini…It is sure to garner a lot of laughs!’
If sources from the sets are to be believed, Shreyas was quite gung-ho about the sequence as he is a Big B fan.
‘Hum Tum Shabana’, co-produced by Horseshoe Pictures and Alliance Entertainment, will release Sep 23.
