October 14 : Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Saand Ki Aankh is gaining a lot of momentum as the lead characters are in full swing with their promotions to make the film a success. The film’s Diwali release will clash with two more big banner films—Akshay Kumar starrer Housefull 4 and Rajkummar Rao starrer Made In China.
Taapsee Pannu took to her social media and announced the release of a new song from Hiranandani’s Saand Ki Aankh. The song—‘Aasma ooncha hai mera, tu hi choo lena’ has been sung by the legendary singer Asha Bhosle, who returns with the song after a long gap. When Asha Bhosle heard about the story of the revolver Dadis and about the inspirational song, she could relate with the spirit and immediately agreed to sing the song.
Composer Vishal Mishra said that Asha Bhosle’s timeless voice was what he was looking for. Vishal heard the script of the film two years back and since then he took up the challenge to convince Asha Bhosle to sing the song for him.
Saand Ki Aankh, a story about two octogenarian sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar from Uttar Pradesh, has been in the news constantly. Sometime back when actor Kangana Ranaut's spokesperson Rangoli Chandel tweeted that Kangana was offered the role, who turned it down as she wanted older age actresses to play the role, Taapsee revealed that the makers of the film did not approach her for the role. It was she who approached them and expressed her desire to portray the character.
