‘Hate Story’ franchise, besides its high dose of intimate scenes is also known for chartbuster music. The songs of all the previous movies in the franchise have become big hits and this trend is going to continue in ‘Hate Story 4’ as well.
The songs for the fourth instalment of this erotic thriller franchise which stars Urvashi Rautela, Karan Wahi and Ihana Dhillon in lead has already been locked and we heard, one of them is a recreation of a very popular old song. A source close to T-Series who is co-producing this film informed us that “Urvasi Urvasi” song from the 1994 Indian film, ‘Kadhalan’ will be recreated in ‘Hate Story 4’.
According to the source, the makers of ‘Hate Story 4’ have bought the rights of “Urvasi Urvasi” song to film it on Urvashi Rautela who plays a super-model in the movie. “The makers thought that since the actress shares her name with this very popular catchy song which was once a rage all over, it would be a great marketing tool to use this song in the film. They have told the music composer to work on the recreation without harming the original magic with fresh lyrics,” the source said.
“Urvasi Urvasi” song is actually a Tamil-language song which was later dubbed into Telugu and Hindi due to its immense national popularity. The song that featured Prabhu Deva in the video and was sung by Suresh Peters and Shahul Hameed in the composition of Oscar-winning A.R. Rahman, was a chartbuster when it released 13 years back. This song was played at every club, disco, restaurant, marriage hall and street corner across the country and went down in Indian movie history as one of the most popular songs of all time.
In 2014, American hip hop recording artist will.i.am and singer Cody Wise, re-created “Urvasi Urvasi” as “It’s My Birthday” which topped the charts in the United Kingdom, becoming will.i.am’s tenth chart-topper here.
