“Tip Tip Song”, the latest song from Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi, is now out. It is a remix of the classic song “Tip Tip Barsa Paani” from Rajiv Rai’s 1994 film Mohra. It featured Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon in pivotal roles, and the actor’s seductive performance in the song is still remembered today.
Recently in a conversation with ETimes, filmmaker Rajiv Rai revealed why he gave permission to the makers for recreating the song. He also revealed that he has not watched Sooryavanshi yet. He said, “I normally watch a film on the first day of its release. But, there is a lot of crowd at cinemas and with COVID still being around, I am staying away from cinema halls. I have yet to watch ‘No Time To Die’ and it is for the same reason.”
He also opened up about that he doesn’t believe in remixes of old songs he made an exception for this song. Talking about it, he said, “I don’t believe in remixes. I have never done it and will not do it. This time I have made an exception. When the makers approached me, I agreed to give permission as these are times when we filmmakers should support each other and I am glad people are back at the cinemas.”
Previously Farah Khan also talked about recreating the song for Rohit Shetty’s film Sooryavanshi. She said, “Raveena was the first one to call me and say that the song is looking fab and Katrina Kaif is looking so good. Even Manish (Malhotra) was of the thought that we go away from the visuals of the original song and he’s made Katrina look like a million bucks. I also don’t think anyone could have done justice to “Tip Tip”, other than Katrina.”
