After the massive success of Dilbar and Ishare Tere, Dhvani Bhanushali has launched her first solo single getting everyone nostalgic.The young singer created a huge stir with her previous outings with each song topping the charts. Taking back to memory lane the singer has remade the iconic single of Shreya Ghosal 'Leja Leja Re'.
The new song titled 'Leja Re' will feature Dhvani and has been shot in a beautiful palace in Alwar, Rajasthan. The song is recreated by Tanishk Bagchi while the new lyrics are penned by Rashmi Virag and directed by director duo Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru. Keeping the beauty of the old song the makers have given a modern touch to the video with fresh beats to song.
Talking about the video, director duo, Radhika & Vinay share, "We have made several Pop songs & their videos in the past, but soon moved over to direct movies and film songs. It was since past few months we thought of exploring the idea of making a "Pop Song" again... as we really believe the time for Solo singing artist is back.. and audience really want to listen to new young talented singers. So when we heard the recreated version of our own hit song "Leja Re" by Tanishk in Dhvani’s voice, we were pleasantly surprised and must say... super impressed. It was as good.. if not better than our own original hit song and we knew this will be a modern day young age love track that will travel. We have heard Dhvani’s previous work also and she has made this rendition of "Leja Re" sound very special. And what was most refreshing was to see this young talented singer so comfortable in front of the camera... and that confidence made us take a decision to Direct this song. The original song "Leja Leja Re" was shot by us with the music legend Ustad Sultan Khan and the reaction we received at that time was humbling. We had to do justice to that. We have tried to make an amalgamation of old and new with this track... with Super talented Composer & singer team of Tanishk & Dhvani... and are so happy that this song... which is shot as a story of "First Love”.. has shaped up as good as our original blockbuster song."
The talented composer, Tanishk Bagchi shares, "Leja Leja Re is one of Pop song classics and the song is still everyone’s favourite including mine. I have always been a huge fan of Sandesh Shandaliya and the song he made is so heart touching. When I was suggested to recreate the song, it was a challenge for me. Big shoes to fill in. But I am happy with the way the song has turned out and Rashmi Virag Sir has written lyrics that make this one as a new individual song in itself. Dhvani and I have worked together before for Dilbar, and when she came on board for the rendition ‘Leja Re’ it has brought innocence and freshness to the recreated track.”
Dhvani Bhanushali shares, Leja Re is like a dream song for me. The original song by Shreya Ma’am is so melodious and I am huge fan of hers and that song. It is still on my playlist like many others. Tanishk Sir has recreated this one and it sounds so different yet the flavor is old. I am so glad that I could also feature in this video and Vinay Sir and Radhika Ma’am shot my first solo single. They were very patient during the entire shoot and the video will always remain so close to my heart.”
