A cult image presented again

Well fans of the film have a special treat in store as Shreyas Talpade will be seen in a fun recreation of the song in his upcoming comedy film, Hum Tum Shabana.

Shreyas will be seen in the same avatar of the hilarious coconut seller as he tries to woo Minissha Lamba on a beach in the roller coaster comedy that stars Tusshar Kapoor as well. The entire look has been styled based on Big B’s costume, with a similar miniature goatee, black belt and dhoti.

Says producer Sunil Chainani of Horseshoe Pictures, “The song is the fun title track of the film called Hey Na Shabana wherein Minissha is angry at the two men and they are trying to woo her. In the process, they do anything and everything. So we had the idea of styling the song using Bollywood’s cult images. That led to Shreyas dressed in Mr Bachchan’s cult coconut seller avatar in Desh Premee, as the song was being shot on a beach. Shreyas does all sorts of comic antics to woo Minissha just like the way Mr Bachchan did in Desh Premee for Hema Malini. It is sure to garner a lot of laughs.”

Sources also tell us that upon hearing this, Shreyas was quite gung-ho as he is apparently a huge fan of Amitabh and the song.

Hum Tum Shabana is a hilarious love triangle about two guys (Tusshar and Shreyas) and their rivalry to woo the same girl (Minissha) which lands them into a crazy contest of epic proportions.

Soon enough, this battle to woo the girl turns into a desperate battle to lose the girl. Produced by Horseshoe Pictures and Alliance Entertainment, the film is due for release on September 23.
