The 1990 superhit soundtrack of ‘Aashiqui’ is all set to become new again as the head honcho of T-Series, Bhushan Kumar, is going to be creating a special tribute for his father Gulshan Kumar. News has it that Hrithik Roshan will be seen dancing to the track in collaboration with Yo Yo Honey Singh’s vocals.

Talking to TOI, Bhushan Kumar said, “When Yo Yo Honey Singh met me for the first time, he told me how he respected my father so much and he had dreamt of one day working with him. He had read somewhere that ‘Dheere dheere se’ was my father’s favourite song and said that he wanted to recreate it for him and that too for free, even though he otherwise charges a huge amount. He started the work but then fell ill last year. During his illness, I met him three times at his house. I met him first time, then second time during my sister’s wedding, but it was on my third visit only, when Honey was feeling much better and had started composing again, that I asked him if he felt comfortable to finish the song, as I wanted to pay a tribute to my father as Aashiqui completes 25 years. And Honey completed the song.”

He added, “I then went to Hrithik Roshan, who was my first choice to dance on the single. I made him listen to the song without telling him the purpose for which I was making it. He loved it, but didn’t see the reason why he should dance to an old recreated song, given that Hrithik has never ever been part of a single song video. I then told Hrithik my reasons for making it and within a second he said, ‘I am doing it for Gulshanji. That will be my only reason to dance to it.”

Both Roshan and Singh have done the song for free and no doubt fans will now be waiting for this new version.
