Urvashi, the A.R. Rahman chartbuster from the Prabhudheva-Nagma 1994 Tamil film Kadhalan — dubbed as Humse Hai Muqabala in Hindi — has been recreated by Yo Yo Honey Singh.
Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani will feature in the video of the single, produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar. “The original was an iconic chartbuster and we are rekindling the on-screen magic with Shahid and Kiara as per the tastes of today’s young generation,” Bhushan said in a statement.
Choreographer Sanjay Shetty, reveals, the team has changed the lyrics, but the hook line remains the same. “The song doesn’t showcase a love story but a new-age relationship between Shahid and Kiara. The choreography is contemporary. Shahid is super excited and Kiara is a fab dancer,” he added.
Kiara said: “I know the pressure one goes through when a classic song is recreated. This could be my ode to Prabhu sir. I am his huge fan. Shahid is a great dancer. I was nervous about matching his skills, but he was super fun to work with.”
