First Look: Mallika in Maan Gaye Mughall E Azam
Mallika Sherawat is ready to step into Madhubala's shoes for her soon to be released comedy, Maan Gaye Mughall E Azam produced by Venus Records And Tapes Pvt Ltd.
Interestingly, the film has got a few similarities with the Dilip Kumar starrer classic Mughal E Azam. Besides the title, Maan Gaye Mughall E Azam also retains the popular song, Pyar kiya to darna kya, from the original.
The song is set in a completely different format. While the lyrics have been penned by Sanjay Chhel, Anu Malik has composed the music for it. Says Anu Malik, "The song Pyar kiya toh darna kya is one of the greatest songs in the history of Indian cinema. No one can ever make such a beautiful song nor can anyone copy Madhubala or even forget her performance in the song."
Since it's a comedy, the song comes across as one of the stage performances done by the cast in the film. Ratan Jain, the producer of the film, says "The song has been picturised on Mallika and although it has been inspired from the old classic, it will have a different tune altogether."
Adds Anu Malik "It so happens that the cast play stage performers who sing the song in their own comic style. Many funny lines have been incorporated without any intension to hurt anyone."
