Raghav Sachar recreates 'Ruk Ruk Ruk' for Kajol's Helicopter Eela

The song from 90s which gained popularity from the movie Vijaypath has been revamped for Pradeep Sarkar's upcoming film.


“Ruk Ruk Ruk, arey baba ruk, oh my darling give me a look” is an iconic song, sung mostly in every game of antakshari. It has been 24 years since the release, but the song from Vijaypath which released in 1994 is all set to be back on our playlists with its revamped version.

Pradeep Sarkar’s next directorial Helicopter Eela starring Kajol has garnered interest for its endearing narrative, where she will be seen playing a possessive single mother who also happens to be an aspiring singer and the one who overlooked her aspirations for her growing son.

The song, composed by musician Raghav Sachar and crooned by talented Palomi Ghosh, is set to release on September 25. Elaborating on his experience of recreating the most popular song of the 90’s, Raghav said, “One morning Pradeep Da called me and said, ‘Raghav I want you to recreate the Ruk Ruk Ruk song for a film I’m working on. Send it to me by afternoon’. I rushed to the studio and worked up with the basic tune with the rap portions by three in the afternoon. By evening, he was also in the studio. When he first heard the song, he just got up started dancing. Talking about the song, I can share that I’ve retained the melody just like it was in the original by Anu Malik. We have updated the song with new rap portions that make it more conversational. Since Eela’s character is very expressive, it adds a personal touch to the song.”

Helicopter Eela is produced by Ajay Devgn, Dhaval Jayantilal Gada, Aksshay Jayantilal Gada and will release on October 12, 2018.
