Shah Rukh Khan‘s latest blockbuster Jawan has released the extended version of its third song, Not Ramaiya Vastavaiya, which showcases the superstar in a double role as father and son, Azad and Vikram Rathore. The song is a peppy number that has SRK and Nayanthara grooving to the desi beats, with a twist of humour and action.
The song is a tribute to Raj Kapoor’s iconic phrase from Shree 420
The title of the song, Not Ramaiya Vastavaiya, is a playful reference to the iconic phrase Ramaiya Vastavaiya, which was first used in Raj Kapoor’s film Shree 420. The phrase has an interesting backstory, as Raj Kapoor would often visit Khandala with his team of music composers during the making of Shree 420. Shanker, Jaikishan, Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri were in the team. One day, they met a local boy named Ramaiya, who became their friend and guide. They decided to dedicate a song to him, and thus Ramaiya Vastavaiya was born.
The song is composed by Anirudh Ravichander and sung by Vishal Dadlani and Shilpa Rao
The song is composed by Anirudh Ravichander, who also sang the Tamil and Telugu versions of the song. The Hindi version is sung by Vishal Dadlani and Shilpa Rao, with lyrics by Kumar. The song is a fusion of folk and modern elements, with catchy hooks and witty lyrics. The song also features some impressive choreography by Farah Khan, who made SRK dance as both father and son.
Ramaiya Vastavaiya’s Extended Version Out Now
Shah Rukh Khan took to Instagram to share the song video with his fans, with a catchy caption that read, “All work and no joy makes handsome a dull boy. Let Daddy show u how it’s done… disco jazz blues saare bhool jaa… desi beat pe bas jhool jaa…#NotRamaiyaVastavaiya Extended Version Out Now.”
