Word is that Shreya Ghoshal was paid a whopper (a crore!) for her appearance on the small screen. The singer, who has rendered the promotional track of the upcoming show, Zindagi Mere Ghar Aana, starring Esha Kansara and Hasan Zaidi, also features in the music video. Ghoshal and entrepreneur husband Shiladitya Mukhopadhyaya welcomed their son, Devyaan, on May 22. As it was one of her first assignments after motherhood, she preferred to shoot and sing from the confines of her home. The crooner says the television series, produced by writer Zama Habib, about pregnancy and motherhood in difficult times, reminded her of being pregnant during the pandemic.
Sisters at work
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karisma Kapoor feature together in an ad helmed by Punit Malhotra. There’s never a dull moment when Lolo and Bebo are around. Malhotra described the shoot as “the funniest with the loveliest.” He also realised his dream of teaming up with his favourite actor Kareena again after Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (2013).
The music legacy continues
In 1991, Jatin Pandit (of the Jatin-Lalit duo) scored the music for the chartbuster, Bin tere sanam, in Yaara Dildara. Three decades later, he has written a fresh song with the Bin tere catchphrase for singer-composer son Raahul Jatin’s new single. “Dad and my uncle have given some incredible music. I have just started my journey as a musician. There is a long way to go, and I can never ever think of comparing myself to them. Their landmark work is irreplaceable in today’s times,” says Raahul. Jatin-Lalit’s compositions were chartbusters in several films, including Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992) and Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman (1992). “When I create a song, the melody should affect me emotionally,” says Raahul, who also features in Bin tere’s music video alongside Mexican actor and social media influencer Estefania Martt. “We shot for it in San Juan Capistrano in California. Bin tere is about the innocence of young love,” adds Raahul.
