Monali Thakur recreates Machis' popular song 'Pani Pani Re'

Machis' popular song Pani Pani Re, originally sung by the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, gets a new voice. Popular singer Monali Thakur has released her version of the song, which was originally penned by Gulzar Sahab and composed by Vishal Bhardwaj.

Monali's version of the song has the original flavour and the singer has also revealed that the entire team has not touched the previous composition thereby retaining the flawless masterpiece, as is. Paani Paani Re has just been treated with a completely new sound and production

Sharing the thought, Monali said, “Sometimes you don't plan thing's and it suddenly comes to you and you do it in a drive. I was sitting somewhere in the Alps, I was hiking actually, and was humming this song and suddenly I felt it's just such a beautiful song, I wish I could give a rendition of mine as well to this song. I immediately googled to find out who had the rights! Sony Music India had them! I immediately called sitting in the midst of nature and spontaneously asked them if they would they like to have a new version of this song in my voice, with a completely new soundtrack so that the millennial crowd and every present generation can hear a new take on it, with fresh sound.. and as a new song. They said yes to it the very next day after confirming the rights and that’s how the process started!”

On being asked about her experience of the making of this single, she further added, “It has been quite an exciting experience for me because it’s like my first mini production! We shot the music video in Switzerland capturing beautiful locations in the heart of Alps. So, basically, we had a beautiful holiday and also a super productive 2 days of shooting the video. The song, it’s melody and Gulzar Sahab’s words deserved beautiful untouched raw natural locations. The video had to be simple yet beautiful."

Monali has also crooned for a song titled ‘Ho Jaa Awara’ which will be featured in Karan Deol and Sahher Bambba's upcoming film, Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas (2019).
