Almost 20-years-ago or so, Sushmita mesmerised us with her spellbinding performance in the Sirf Tum song, ‘Dilbar’. Now, it has been revealed that this classic Nadeem-Shravan track will be recreated for John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate. 

Apparently, the revamped version will have an Arabic theme to it and Nora, being trained in Belly dancing, is the ideal candidate for the song.

Fatehi, who had rehearsed for 10 days before the shoot says, “Doing a remake of an iconic song is always nerve-racking because you never know if you can actually do justice to it. Sushmita Sen was iconic in the song and I hope I match up to her.

I’m so lucky to have got this chance and thankful that Nikkhil Advani sir, Bhushan Kumar sir and Milap Zaveri sir trusted me to be able to do a song like this. The take on the song is very unique and different. It’s going to be one of the most visually stunning songs, with amazing hypnotizing dance moves I am sure this song will become a rage with the audiences.”

John Abraham, who won’t be shaking his legs in the song says, “When I heard the powerful script of Satyameva Jayate I knew that we had most of the ingredients that are required for an out and out commercial masala film.

With the addition of Dilbar, one of the most catchy songs of the 90’s and the way it has been stunningly picturized by Adil and Nora I am certain we have a winner.”

Producer Bhushan Kumar adds, “I still remember when the song released back then it was an instant hit. Since a really long time, I wanted to recreate this song with modern notes. The song appears in an important sequence of the film and the Arabic theme looks splendid. “

Director Milap Zaveri says, “Dilbar was a rage back then when it released and our new version is also going to be a rage. Bhushan sir has given “Satyameva Jayate” a dash of sizzle and glamour with this blockbuster song and Nora is terrific in it!”

Satyameva Jayate also stars debutant Aisha Sharma, Manoj Bajpayee and Amruta Khanvilkar and will hit the theatres on 15th August 2018. The film is directed by Milap Zaveri and is jointly produced by Tseries and Emmay Entertainment.

Nora was also a part of ‘Rock Tha Party’ remix from Rocky Handsome – another John Abraham. It will be interesting to see how the new ‘Dilbar’ will be received.
