Mumbai: ‘Disco Dancer’ Mithun Chakravarty plays a pivotal role in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming laugh riot ‘Golmaal 3’ starring Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Khemu, Shreyas Talpade and Tusshar Kapoor.

The songs ‘I am a Disco Dancer’ and ‘Yaad aa raha hai’ from Mithun Da’s blockbuster film ‘Disco Dancer’ have been woven into the narrative of the film. Having known for a slapstick genre, Rohit Shetty’s ‘Golmaal’ series’, latest franchise aims to add on to the gimmicky appeal of the film by incorporating songs from legendry Mithun Da’s film.

Justifying the news to the reporters, Tusshar Kapoor who has been an integral part of the ‘Golmaal’ series said, “Not really. I have been associated with Rohit for all these years and know that he won`t add something just for the sake of it. Even in case of Mithunji`s songs in the film, by no means are they gimmicky.”

The film which is slated to release this Diwali has a huge ensemble cast. Hit maker Pritam has composed the music for the film. Then for what do songs from ‘Disco Dancer’, a film which released almost three decades find a place in the narrative?

Explaining the significance of those songs in the film, Tushhar said, “Well, these songs are pretty much situational rather than being random item tracks. Whenever there is a twist in the story with an emotional scene coming in, there is `Yaad Aa Ra Hai` which plays in the background. Of course with Mithunji around in a comedy film, you may feel that all of this is a gimmick. However, his entire track is pretty much etched in the film`s narrative.”

Well, no matter for what reason the unit of ‘Golmaal 3’ had added songs from the film ‘Disco Dancer’, here’s wishing the entire team of the film a very happy Diwali and super success.
