Dhvani Bhanushali to recreate Shreya Ghoshal’s Leja Leja Re magic
Following the huge success of Dilbar, which she rendered with Neha Kakkar and Ikka Singh and Ishare Tere, which she sang along with Guru Randhawa, Dhvani Bhanushali is all set to release her first solo single that takes you down memory lane. The young singer is said to recreate Shreya Ghoshal’s magic with her rendition of the chartbuster number, Leja Leja Re. Featuring Dhvani, the remake by Tanishk Bagchi has new lyrics by Rashmi Virag. Shot in an exquisite palace in Alwar, Rajasthan, its video is directed by Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru. While retaining the beauty of the original track, the makers have given a modern touch to the new version with fresh beats.
Having made several pop songs and videos in the past, before foraying into directing films and film songs, the director duo was thinking of exploring the idea of making a pop song again as they ‘really believe the time for a solo artiste is back and the audience wants to listen to new talented singers. “When we heard the recreated version of our own hit song Leja Leja Re by Tanishk in Dhvani’s voice, we were pleasantly surprised and also super impressed. It was as good.. if not better than our own original hit song. And we knew this will be a modern-day young age love track that will travel,” echo Radhika-Vinay.
The director duo add, “We’ve heard Dhvani’s previous work also and she has made this rendition of Leja Leja Resound very special. What was most refreshing was to see this young talented singer so comfortable in front of the camera and that confidence made us decide to direct this song. The original song was shot by us with the music legend Ustad Sultan Khan and the reaction we received at that time was humbling. We had to do justice to that. We have tried to make an amalgamation of old and new with this track, with the talented composer and singer team of Tanishk and Dhvani. And we’re so happy that this track, which is shot as a story of first love, has shaped up as good as our original superhit song.”
Dhvani Bhanushali’s first single ‘Leja Leja Re’ has finally arrived, giving nostalgia a fresh dose of the urban mix. The music video is a remake of the popular song by the same name, voiced by Shreya Ghoshal and Ustad Sultan Khan, now featuring Dhvani in a style like never before.
Owing to its richness, the remake has been extensively shot in Rajasthan capturing the cultural montages of all times. Recreated by Tanishk Bagchi, the lyrics are composed by Rashmi Virag keeping an essence of the original song intact. While the remake looks fresh and captivating, the lyrics are sure to set a perfect festive mood this season.
