‘Stubborn’ Deepika has differences with producer Rohan Sippy
Mumbai: Dusky hottie Deepika Padukone might be just three years old in the Hindi film industry but has mastered the art of calling the shots. Buzz has it that the dimpled actress had objections over lip syncing the remixed version of the evergreen hit number ‘Dum Maro Dum’, owing to the sleazy language used in the song.
Talking to a news daily, a source close to the actress revealed, "The lyrics were full of bold words."
Dips had a lengthy discussion with Rohan Sippy, the producer of the film. She put her foot down and made it very clear that she would do the song on her own terms. And Sippy had no say but to give in to her demands.
"Sippy told Deepika that every time she was expected to mouth the objectionable lyrics, her back would face the camera. Therefore she will only mouth lyrics that she is comfortable with," added the source.
The iconic song is re-written by Jaideep Sahni and Pritam has re-composed it.
Describing the revamped song, music director Pritam said, "Shooting mein kya hua mujhe nahin pata (I don’t know what happened while shooting). But yes, this song will shake you up. It`s bold beyond words. We have composed it keeping today`s very young and modern generation in mind. Big deal yaar, today`s generation loves it this way."
