With the mention of Mr. India, the 90s kid in me already starts humming the songs of the film. We have to agree that all the tracks in the film were chartbusters. Especially, Kaate Nahin Kat Te which was picturised on Sridevi and Anil Kapoor. Boney Kapoor, who produced the film, recently shared how they created the song.
“We had initially thought of a set model for the song, but then we improvised. I provoked Shekhar (Kapur, director) that she (Sridevi) should look more sensuous than what anyone has looked before on-screen. She was quite sensuous in a song in Janbaaz (the song was Har Kisi Ko Nahi Milta), so he took it up as a challenge,” Boney said in an interview with IANS.
After the prodding, Shekhar got this blue chiffon sari, and we used a big fan to create the breezy environment… Her hair was flying and the sari was clinging to the body. There was not an iota of skin show in it. Still, it remains a sensual song.
Kaate Nahin Kat Te wouldn’t have been the same if anything about it had changed.
Since we spoke about the song, there is no way we wouldn’t share the song with you guys here. Enjoy it!
Mr. India released in 1987 and also starred Amrish Puri, Satish Kaushik, Annu Kapoor, Sharat Saxena among others.
