Raj Kapoor song for Prabhudheva?

Filmmaker Prabhudheva has selected the title of a vintage Raj Kapoor song as his next film’s title, to introduce music baron Kumar Taurani’s son Girish Taurani, as the leading man. Now, Prabhudheva is trying to seek permission from the Kapoor khandan to use that classic song in his film.   His upcoming film, Ramaiya Vastavaiya, is also the title of the iconic song from Raj Kapoor’s super hit film Shree 420. A source close to the project says, “There is so much of Raj Kapoor’s bucolic innocence in Girish Taurani’s character. Prabhudheva is very keen to get the rights of the original song. Luckily, Raj Kapoor’s son Randhir Kapoor is working in Prabhu’s film. The director intends to ask Randhirji’s permission to use the song.”   However, the rumor mill states that Prabhudheva wants to design a completely new and fresh title song for the film. When asked about it he says, “We are looking at the options. To use the original song would be a huge responsibility. We called the film ‘Ramaiya Vastavaiya’ because it suits the hero’s innocence. But to use the classic song is a scary thought. Let’s see. We may decide to compose an entirely new title song. But that’s an even bigger challenge.”    The turns in the events reminisces of producer Aditya Chopra, who had dropped the plans for a title song in his film ‘Dilwale Dhulaniya Le Jayenge,’ as the idea of trying to do justice to the original song was impossible.
