The wait is over! ‘Kudi Meri’ by Hitz Music featuring Manoj Bajpayee, Dhvani Bhanushali and Abhimanyu Dassani is out now
Vinod Bhanushali’s Kudi Meri, an upbeat dance number, directed by Ganesh Acharya features Dhvani Bhanushali Abhimanyu Dassani and none other than Manoj Bajpayee. A recreation of the 90s hit ‘Sapne Mein Milti Hai’, the gangster vibe wala song brings back the iconic character of Bhiku Mhatre.
The song recreated by Lijo George and DJ Chetas will definitely make you dance to its beats. Lyrics by Kumaar, Yash Narvekar and Dhvani Bhanushali have given the vocals to the groovy recreated number.
The entire team came together to launch the song in a multiplex today amongst fanfare. There were seetis, shot and masti on stage while Manoj Bajpayee, Dhvani Bhanushali and Abhimanyu Dassani did some dancing with Ganesh Acharya and his crew on stage.
Says Manoj Bajpayee, “I was glad when Vinod Bhanushali Ji decided to reinvent this classic song. Everyone has loved and cherished this ‘Sapne Mein Milti Hai’ and now that they are bringing it back, the newer generations will be able to do the same. The audience has shown a lot of love to Bhiku Mhatre which is why I had a lot of fun while shooting this video. Even though I am not much of a keen dancer it was a fun experience to relive the memories.”
Dhvani Bhanushali said, “Singing and shooting for Kudi Meri was a surreal experience. I have enjoyed and danced to this song on so many occasions so making the music video made it even more enjoyable and what better than doing this with the OG. Manoj sir is a phenomenal person and adds so much to the video. Abhimanyu and I had a blast during rehearsals and I have finally danced to the steps of THE Ganesh Acharya Sir. But Kudos to Lijo and Chetas for keeping the original element whilst giving it their twist so beautifully and Yash for being my partner in this energetic song.”
Abhimanyu Dassani says, “The song is so lively, I kept grooving to it since the time I have heard it. Dhvani and I had a lot of fun working on this song with Ganesh Sir and his team. It was a great experience working with Manoj Sir & recreating this legendary song was fun. We enjoyed working on Kudi Meri and I hope the audiences will soon start grooving to it.”
Director Ganesh Acharya adds, “We all at various events have danced on the iconic song, and it was fun to give it our twist while choreographing and shooting for the recreation. Dhvani and Abhimanyu have brought so much energy on set and in their performances while Manoj Sir’s presence just makes it 100 times better.”
Producer Vinod Bhanushali said, “Everyone on the song has given their heart in making Kudi Meri and giving the audience an upbeat, energetic song they can dance to. My goal for recreating this cult classic song was so that the current generation who may not have even heard this song gets to enjoy it. The original one is loved and cherished by the audience all over and I hope the current generation does the same.”
