Which is a reprised version of the 1990s’ iconic hit number “Tamma tamma“, When Alia asked about the same , she added, “stepping into the shoes of Madhuri Dixit who grooved to the original track is an impossible job.
She said, “I am not trying to step into Madhuri Dixit’s shoes. That is a totally impossible task,” Alia during the song launch event”.
She continued, “I was very nervous when we went to show her (Madhuri) the song and had nightmares before shooting the song. However, I, Varun and Bosco (of Bosco-Caesar), we had an agenda that we must not recreate the song. It would be a tribute from us”.
Recently, Varun and Alia had shared a video on their blog. Where, they could be seen learning the dance steps from Madhuri.
About Madhuri’s reaction to the new version, Varun said: “We already got thumbs up from both Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt. Even Bappi da (Bappi Lahiri), who is the original creator of the song, when he gave his blessings, we were fired up.”
About Sanjay Dutt, Alia said: “I remember vaguely as a kid having Sanjay Dutt around me many times as he was very close to my dad. He knows me since I was a child.
“As for Madhuri ma’am, I met her for the first time after I became an actress. Though she tells me that she has seen me when I was too young,” added Alia, daughter of veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt.

The fresh “Tamma tamma” has been re-structured around the original vocals from Bappi Lahiri and Anuradha Paudwal, along with a rap verse done by Badshah.
