The original song was sung by Geeta Dutt and was picturised on the legendary actress Waheeda Rehman. 'CID' also starred late actor Dev Anand.
The makers of 'Bombay Velvet' have got the rights for the song and it has been reframed with a more contemporary feel.
The song has been picturised on Anushka, who plays a 1960s jazz singer named Rosie Noronha. In fact, it is by singing 'Jaata kahaan hain diwane' that Rosie gets noticed as a singer in a club and becomes the marquee performer at Johnny Balraj's (played by Ranbir Kapoor) 'Bombay Velvet'.
Set against the backdrop of ambition, love, greed, and jazz -- 'Bombay Velvet' is the story of one ordinary man who goes against all odds and forges his destiny to become a big shot.
The film, a large screen adaptation of Gyan Prakash's 'Mumbai Fables', also features Vivaan Shah, Karan Johar, Raveena Tandon and Kay Kay Menon.
The film is slated to hit the theaters on May 15.
