Mumbai, Sept. 13 -- RA.One chartbuster 'Chammak chhalo...' will now be heard in a peppier rhythm and newer sound effects. Delhi-based DJ Khushi Soni has remixed the song and this new club version is included in the film's audio CD, which was released yesterday at Film City.
"While remixing the song, I knew I had to come up with something that works not just in India, but also for the international markets, as it's already a global hit. I wanted a remix that would be loved by other DJs as well as the masses," says Soni. A VishalShekhar composition, 'Chammak Chhalo...' features singers Akon and Hamsika Iyer.
Interestingly, the song has been redone with SRK's approval. "The Moranis from Cineyug Films recommended me to SRK, but also mentioned that he would release it only if he likes it. So I made a demo and sent it to him. When I met SRK in Delhi at an event, he said he loved the song and asked me to complete the track so that it could be released on the audio CD. I was very nervous until I got the feedback from him, but the wait was well worth it." Adds Khushi, "Before I started working on the remix, I asked if SRK or Vishal-Shekhar or Akon had something in mind for the remix. But they were humble and told me to do what I wanted to."
In the past, DJ Khushi has remixed songs from films like Tum Mile (2009), Kaminey (2009) and Always Kabhi Kabhi (2011), among others. Having played at several private shows for high-profile clients, DJ Khushi remembers the time when he performed for steel magnate LN Mittal in Delhi. "It was an amazing experience playing for Mr Mittal. It was really nice to know how humble he is," he says.
