“Mile sur mera tumhara….sur bane hamara!”
These lines evoke a a feeling of patriotism and nostalgia in me and I’m literally moved to tears every time I here them. Such is the power of this simple song! Originally released in 1988, this song was first telecasted on DD, the only channel back then. And it instantly struck a chord with the people and enjoyed a cult status.
22 years later, Mile Sur is back in a new avatar! Kailash Surendranath & Aarti have recreated this classic piece and have rechristened it as “Phir Mile Sur”. This new song will be aired on 26th January, 2010 on Zoom television. Amitabh Bachhan has officially released this album today.
The original song Mile Sur Tumhara comprised of various musicians, film stars & personalities including Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Dr. Bala MuraliKrishna, the then Indian all-rounder Kapil Dev, film artistes Amitabh Bachhan, Jeetendra, Sharmila Tagore, ace sportsmen Prakash Padukone and others to mention a few.
Phir mile sur has been shot with 22 stars, 18 musicians, 13 artistes and singers and 15 other personalites.
Among them, Amitabh Bachhan has the unique honour of being the only artiste to feature in both the old as well as the new versions of the song. Apart from being featured in the song, Amitabh has also lent his voice for it! Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachhan, Priyanka Chopra, Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan & Deepika Padukone are other stars who appear in the song.
Im eagerly waiting to see if this happens to be as good as the original!
