Question of a Song.   

Thank you folks for the response to Imran and Genelia. They are absolutely thrilled.

Have a very unusual question for you.

You see we had two more songs in the film, one is the female version of Jaane Tu Mera Kya Hai, Jaane Tu Mera Kya ThaÖ sung by Runa , and the other is the male version of the same song sung by Sukhvinder. Both songs had been shot. In the test screenings we decided to cut out the male version because we felt it stopped the flow of the story. However opinion on the female version was divided. Through all the test screenings and the final edit we were not sure whether to cut that song out or retain it in the film. Sometimes we would remove it, then we would put it back in. A.R., if I remember correctly, wanted it to stay in. We finally decided to complete the final copy (first print) with the song in it. We figured we would see the final film and then take a final call whether to keep it or cut it out.

The music had released by then so the music CDs and cassettes have the songs in it. The music company was strongly in favor of keeping the female version song in the film. As per their feedback the song had become quite popular. Around the 2nd week of June with less than a month left for the release our final copy was finally ready. We saw the film and had a long discussion again about the song. About 40 to 50 people were at that screening, again the opinion was divided. However Abbas, Mansoor and I were of the opinion that we should go without it. We felt it didnít fit in with the rest of the movie. So we cut the song out and what we have released is what we think the movie should be.

Am always curious about such decisions. The movie has been loved so I am assuming we took the right decision. But a number of people have also come up to me and said that they had liked the song in the audio and missed it in the film.

Want your opinion.

Should it have been in the film? Do you think we should add the song into the film now? The song is ready and its easy enough for me to do...

Hello Aamir Sir,

I am yet to watch your blockbuster Ghajini but i will watch it
very soon.Just wanted to ask you one very important question.Its
been ages that a person,very much a part of you has not been
given his due credit.Well Sir,I am talking about none other the
great singer,known as Aamir Khan's Voice Mr.Udit Narayan.Besides
not getting the kind of songs which he should,he has not been
singing for you also.And I am just unable to find an answer to
this.Firstly,it was Fanaa,then Taare Zameen Par and now
Ghajini.Infact some songs which was tailor-made for him also
wasnt sung by him,for example-Chaand Sifaarish(Fanaa),Bum Bum
Bole(TZP) and now Guzaarish(Ghajini).
I am great fan of Udit Ji and look upto him as my idol.Could you
please tell me what is the reason behind it.
ALso,I would like to know about your forthcoming venture called 3
Idiots.A little about the film's music if u don't mind Sir.

Thank You.

Anant Shrivastava.

It was the best song of the movie (the movie almost was as good
as the song) and one of the best of Rahman. You should certainly
include it atleast in the DVD. Manish

Not wen everything is done and dusted..when the film is making a
huge success why push luck? yeah as you said its sung well and in
its good condition to be released if decided but I believe its
little too late now to be honest and its just a case of pushing
ur luck...then again u know betta,u raised a question and I gave
an honest opinion but rest is upto you to decide offcourse.

Definitely.......the song deserves to be in the
movie...especially the female version of it....gr8 composition by
Rehman and even singers has done justice to this beautiful song
......also i feel after seeing it for 6 times already, next time
i'll be having something new to find in this amazing movie.......
