Remember Birju and the evil Lala in Mehboob Khan's 1957 classic film, Mother India?
Purists may scoff at the very idea, but choreographer-director Ganesh Acharya's hilarious rap on these two characters from one of Hindi film industry's cult films is making everybody sit up and take notice.
That the song, for Acharya's upcoming film Hey Bro, features Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh may just be the saving grace for all those talking of puerile tastes and plummeting standards.
The number is sung by Mika Singh and Udit Narayan. The fim has Hanif Hilal, Prem Chopra, Nupur Sharma and Govinda in lead roles. Acharya too plays a role in the film.
Directed by Ajay Chandok, Hey Bro is scheduled to release on January 30.
