She might not have sizzled the silver screen for almost a decade but Hindi cinema’s darling from the 90s, Urmila Matondkar is now back with a bang as ‘Bewafa Beauty’ in the eponymous song from Abhinay Deo and Bhushan Kumar ’s film Blackmail . Also known for her captivating dance moves, the ‘Chamma Chamma’ girl will be seen setting the screen afire as a bar dancer in the zany song. While its music and lyrics mock lead actor Irrfan, who is dealing with an unfaithful wife, it is set inside a bar and offers a glimpse of the place where he recites his life’s tragic turn to a friend.
Talking about the song, producer Bhushan Kumar says, “Although Irrfan’s character in Blackmail is in a situation no man would want to be in, the mood of the film is tongue-in-cheek. We wanted a song that would be naughty and humorous without being vulgar. ‘Bewafa Beauty’ is that song. With Amitabh Bhattacharya's wicked lyrics set to Amit Trivedi's racy composition and Pawni Pandey's spicy voice, picturized on a huge, magnetic star like Urmila Matondkar, this song is set to burn the airwaves in an already scorching summer.”
Revealing how ‘Bewafa Beauty’ came to be, director Abhinay Deo recalls, “Initially, there was no song in the film. But when we were discussing the film creatively, Bhushan, being T-Series and having a keen ear for music, felt that there should definitely be a lip-sync song. I already had an idea of including a song which could take the story ahead. I did not want an item number that comes and goes. We knew that the song should be able to say something in the film. By its name, ‘Bewafa Beauty’ states that it is about a beauty who is unfaithful, which is the premise of the film — a man whose wife is cheating on him.”
The quirky comedy boasts an ensemble cast of Irrfan Khan , Kirti Kulhari , Divya Dutta , Arunoday Singh , Omi Vaidya , Anuja Sathe , Pradhuman Singh Mall, Gajraj Rao , among others.
Produced by T-Series ’ Bhushan Kumar and RDP Motion Pictures ’ Abhinay Deo , Blackmail is directed by Abhinay Deo . It is slated to release on April 6, 2018.
