The music given by Oscar winning A R Rahman is beautiful as always. The lyrics by Gulzar, no need to say, make a way for themselves straight to your heart! No doubt the music of this much awaited flick is creating such a buzz.

After Shah Rukh Khan in My Name Is Khan, it is Abhishek Bachchan’s turn to be marketed on a global platform by Fox Star. The company plans to unleash the Abhishek starrer Dum Maro Dum on the same level globally as Khan. Goa, Bachchan and Bipasha Basu are the heady mix that Fox are counting on to entice an international audience.
Abhishek Bachchan’s first major hit was Mani Ratnam’s Yuva. He then did Guru opposite wife Aishwarya. The trio will now come together in the upcoming Raavan. The film has generated a lot of interest, especially as Abhishek will Raavan to Ash’s Sita. Aishwarya will also do the Tamil version Raavanan, but minus Abhishek.
Raavan will be dubbed in Tamil as Raavanan and in Telugu as Villian. Aishwarya is adept at Tamil, having done films like Iruvar and Jeans before.
We have had South stars doing Bollywood films and vice versa. Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is reportedly planning to do a couple of Tollywood films. The stunner is no stranger to Tamil having debuted in Mani Ratnam’s Iruvar in 1997. She was raw debutant then. Today she is the sophisticated star and one of BTowns top heroines.
The music of Mani Ratnam’s film, Raavan, was launched on Saturday night amidst much fanfare and performances by the film’s lead actor Abhishek Bachchan and music director AR Rahman.
Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, the lead actress of the film, was the highlight of the event as she was the host to introduce the film, draped in a cream colour saree with red embroidery.
The promos of upcoming film Raavan have generated a lot of interest in the film. The Mani Ratnam directed film is a loose adaptation of acclaimed Indian epic Ramayana, with a twist. It has Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan and South star Vikram in lead roles. Interestingly, Abhishek will reprise the character of Raavan while Ash plays Sita. He has recently spoken about how tough and challenging the role was for him.
If Rohan Sippy’s Dum Maro Dum boasts of shooting the underbelly of Goa, then the actors in the film, too, will be seen like never before.
Whether it is Bipasha Basu, who in the role of a flower-girl is almost unrecognizable, or Rana Daggubatti, who as a rock musician looks more Goan than Hyderabadi, the actors blend and merge on the Goan streets so effortlessly they could pass off as locals.
Tamil superstar Vikram who makes his debut in Hindi with Mani Ratnam’s Raavan is a traumatized man.
While in the Hindi version of Raavan he plays Aishwarya Rai’s cop-husband Dev in the Tamil version he plays the brutal outlaw Veera and that too with both the versions being shot simultaneously. Vikram was constantly running in and out of the two completely different characters makeup and languages, sometimes within half an hour.
This year’s most awaited Bollywood film, Raavan will have its music release just two days from now, on April 24. And the excitement for it is already in the air.
According to sources, Asha Bhosle has rendered her voice to a song in the Tamil version of Raavan. Also, one of the tracks, ‘Kata Kata’, features artists Ila Arun, Sapna Awasthi and Kunal Ganjawala. The video of the song was shot in Jhansi, with 500 dancers and is choreographed by Ganesh Acharya. The big budget song took four days to wind up.
