Daler Mehndi never ceases to stop entertaining his fans. After a super duper hit hatrick with Mirzya (which he refers to the song of his soul), to the 2000 crore spinning motivational Dangal, to singing in four languages for the world’s biggest blockbuster Bahubali.
Daler’s next super hit is his evergreen song Kudiyan Shehr Diyan from Rahul Rawail’s1999 action-packed-drama Arjun Pandit, for a Shreyas Talpade production Poster Boys featuring Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Shreyas and Elli Avram.
The song is originally composed and written by Daler Mehndi extempore during his Coca Cola Tour Daler Da on stage in Nagpur and featured him with Juhi Chawla in the film. Kudiyan Shehr Diyan’s new version is done by TanishkBagchi who has previously worked on Tamma Tamma for Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, OK Jannu’s Humma Humma and Mast Mast for Machine.
Neha Kakkar accompanies Daler on the vocals and Ganesh Acharya has choreographed the song.
“We wanted a vibrant and energetic track for the opening sequence as it sets the tone of the film. When someone suggested this number, all of us unanimously agreed as it fits the bill and has great nostalgic value since it comes from a Sunny paaji film even if it didn’t feature him earlier. And we thought of recreating it with Daler Paaji.”
