A indrita Ray celebrated her birthday on April 16, and the makers of Rambo 2 made it special by releasing images of her look from the special song, Dum Maro Dum. Going by the pictures City Express caught hold of, Andy has upped the hotness quotient in Sandalwood. This is sure to be a treat for her fans, who are eagerly waiting to see her on the silverscreen. The film, directed by Anil Kumar and starring Sharan and Ashika Ranganath, marks the singing debut for Aditi Sagar. Aindrita’s outfit has been designed by Shachina Heggar , and her dance moves have been chreographed by Murli Master.
Considering this is a special song, we asked filmmaker Tharun Sudhir how it blends with the storyline. He tells us, “Basically, these songs are like energy boosters. They come at a point where the movie is about to come to an end. Such kind of songs are full of energy. That’s why we make sure they are special - visually and tempo-wise.”
The fascination with these kind of songs hasn’t faded, but it is also important to place these songs at the right moment. “Sometimes, these special songs do take viewers off track. The beauty lies in how you infuse it into the script. Of course, films can go without a special song, or not have any songs at all too,” says Tharun.
It has become a norm to consider a lead heroine for a special song. “You need somebody who can perform. Considering new faces for special songs can go either way - people might like it or may not. But when you have an established actor, the audience will look forward to a surprise element, and the odds become 75/25. So that’s the reason we try to bring in a popular actor,” he says.
The song comes during a pre-climax scene, and connects to the story to the ending, says Tharun, who also reveals that Aindrita had initially said no to the song. “I still remember the day I called her, she told me, ‘Tharun, if it’s for a song, I am not doing. it. Please let me know if I have a role to play’. But I insisted on meeting her and when I just asked her to listen to the song, understand its importance and realise what she might be missing out on. Aindrita, in one-and-half minutes of listening to the song, agreed,” says Tharun, adding that not every actor on the silver screen can deliver special songs. Rambo 2, which has technicians and the actor as its producer, has music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Sudhakar K Raj.
