If you’re expecting a frame-to-frame remake of Subhash Ghai’s Karz from Bhushan Kumar, Satish Kaushik and Himesh Reshammiya, you’re way off the mark.

The producer, director, actor composer trio have been brainstorming almost everyday to come up with a film which is more ‘today’ without ruining the charm of the original.

It was Kumar’s brain wave to come up with a title track which was not there in the original, and Reshammiya came up tops. Penned by Sameer, the lyrics go, Jo tune diya ishq mein loot jaoon loot jaoonmain uskarzzzzpe.

Original connection
“It’s was a real challenge to compose a romantic hip hop number centred on the word ‘karz.’ The first promo will be a video of this particular song,” says Reshammiya.

It will be lavishly shot and could possibly be the most expensive video ever. The song will have two versions, one for the movie and a remixed track for the video.
