Filmmaker Howard Rosemeyer is recreating the iconic Mohammad Rafi chartbuster song ‘Jiya Ho Jiya Kuch Bol Do’, for his film Jia Aur Jia. The new version of the song is composed by Nisschal Zaveri and sung by Jyotika Tangri. The song has retained the original tune with snatches of Rafi’s voice.

“During the shoot, everyone was humming the song because the title sounds similar to the song. So I approached the music company, with the idea of adapting the original song into a party track,” said Howard.

The song is picturized on the two leading ladies, Kalki Koechlin and Richa Chadha. “It’s one grand picnic, under the sun, on the beach and in a forest. It’s in sync with the film’s vibe and reflects the growing camaraderie between the two Jias, though Kalki and Richa are not completely in character. They will be dancing in slow motion and viewers will want to get up and join them,” adds Howard.

Jia Aur Jia revolves around two girls (Played by Richa and Kalki) who embark on a life changing journey, from sharing a hotel room to becoming best friends and eventually facing their darkest secrets together.

The film also stars actor Arslan Goni in the lead. Jia Aur Jia is produced by Mirza N Askari and presented by Blue Fox Motion Pictures Pvt Ltd.
