Harris Jayaraj's track proves unlucky for John Abraham


Harris Jayaraj’s track proves unlucky for John Abraham This is a story that makes you superstitious all over again. A song has brought a big Bollywood blockbuster to its knees. And the producer seething in anger is Vipul Shah, who repeatedly had to cancel the recording and shooting of the song for one reason or another, man-made or otherwise.
What’s with this Southern chartbuster ‘Uyirin Uyire’ from the Tamil film Kaakha Kaakha that’s proving to be such a stumbling-block for the Tamil film’s Hindi version Force? To rewind a bit, Harris Jayaraj, who had done the hit score for Vashu Bhagnani’s Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein ten years ago, had kept away from Hindi films thereafter because of his numerous South Indian assignments… until Vipul Shah coaxed Jayaraj to return to Hindi cinema with Force. Vipul decided to scrap the entire music score of Kaakha Kaakha by Jayaraj in favour of a completely new soundtrack in Force. So far so good. But then, John Abraham and Genelia D’Souza who play the lead in Force, fell in love with one of the Kaakha Kaakha tracks. ‘Uyirin Uyire’, it was decided would remain in the remake. Javed Akhtar was given the task of re-writing the Tamil lyrics into Hindi. And the song was to be shot in Kutch this February. But a double calamity hit the filming of the song. Kutch was hit by freak rains and worse still, Javed was not ready with the lyrics. Courtesy: Bollywood Hungama
