Chamma Chamma, from Rajkumar Santoshi’s 1998 film China Gate, which made us groove to Urmila Matondkar’s steps, is all set to be recreated for the Arshad Warsi-starrer, Fraud Saiyaan.
We have the Swedish actress Elli AvrRam who has been roped in to step into Urmila Matondkar’s shoes.
The song is composed by Tanishk Bagchi and will also feature Arshad and Saurabh Shukla. Romi, Arun and Neha Kakkar have given playback for the song which also features rap by Ikka. The song will be directed and choreographed by Adil Sheikh. Shooting begins today at a Mumbai studio.

Elli who is looking forward to be part of this song said:
“I love the song and adore Urmila Matondkar in it. I got really excited when I was called to Tips office for this song. It’s a epic one and I hope I can match Urmila’s energy and enigma in the remake.”
