Having reportedly paid a hefty sum to acquire the rights to Lag Jaa Gale (Woh Kaun Thi, 1964), in 2013, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster director Tigmanshu Dhulia is making certain that every penny spent on it is worthwhile.

While he apparently used the original number - rendered by Lata Mangeshkar and orchestrated by Madan Mohan — in the second instalment of his film then, he has also created a rehashed version of the track for the upcoming third edition, which features Sanjay Dutt.

Leading ladies Chitrangda Singh and Mahie Gill are set to scintillate viewers in the promotional number, which has been rendered by Jonita Gandhi. The singer was also part of the video, which was shot yesterday.

"Performing this song is a daunting task because one can't do justice to the beauty of the original. Lata Mangeshkar ji and Madan Mohan ji have created magic. To say the song is iconic would be an understatement," says Gandhi.

Rendering the track is even more special to her since it formed a part of her music education. "Like most people, I too have grown up listening to, learning, and attempting [to sing] this song. It is close to my heart. I hope people appreciate it."

The original number was a slow and romantic one, and the revisited version — created by Rana Mazumdar — has contemporary tunes. Yet, producer Rahul Mittra says the team has tried to retain the original essence. "The song epitomises the essence of our film."
