MUMBAI: In the latest development in the release plans for K C Bokadia’s Deewana Main Deewana, Priyanka Chopra has come forward to help in the film’s smooth release in every way possible.
Priyanka has apparently shot a special item song for Bokadia’s film. The song a new adaptation of the popular Punjabi-folk number Kala doriya was freshly recorded in Sunidhi Chauhan and Ila Arun’s voice.
Confirming these developments, the grateful producer K C Bakadia says, “God has been kind. Every producer goes through ups and downs. Priyanka Chopra is a gem of an artiste. She has offered to help in every way possible. You mark my words Kala doriya would do to Priyanka’s reputation as a dancer what the song Gori hai kalaiyan in my film Aaj Ka Arjun did for Jaya Prada.”
Reminiscing about the ups and downs in his career, Bokadia says, “When I made Pyar Jhukta Nahin with Mithun Chakraborty distributors discouraged me saying he was a disco-dancer and an action hero. I stuck to my guns and signed him in a romantic role. The film ran for 50 weeks.I completed Teri Meherbaniyan in 3 months.It had a dog playing the lead. I braved competition from Ramesh Sippy’s Sagar.My film was a super-hit. So what if Deewana Main Deewana is delayed? I’ve a gut feeling it would revive Govinda’s career and take Priyanka to another level.”
Dropping his earlier plans of releasing his film alongside Anurag Basu Barfi, Bokadia plans to release his film on September 28. “I know my product. I know its potential. I am sure it will find an audience.”
