Anurag Kashyap has brought Geeta Dutt’s iconic song Jaata Kahaan Hain Diwane from Dev Anand’s 1956 movie CID back in his upcoming film Bombay Velvet where Anushka Sharma’s character will be lip-syncing to it.

The makers obtained the rights of the original song that was picturised on the legendary Waheeda Rehman. Titled Fifi, the song has been re-versioned and picturised on Sharma who plays a 60s superstar singer named Rosie Noronha.

It is by singing Jaata Kahaan Hain that Rosie gets noticed as a singer and becomes the marquee performer at Johnny Balraj’s (played Ranbir Kapoor) club Bombay Velvet.

“I have always loved the song and we used the film CID for the opium bar reference as well. We decided to use the song for our film, one for the time period, second it fits in perfectly with the opium den atmosphere and the bars visited by Naval officers at the time and RK’s character comes there after the fight to drown his pain in the haze of opium,” Kashyap said.

Produced by Phantom Films and presented by Fox Star Studios, Bombay Velvet releases on May 14.
