Exclusive: Rohit Shetty gets ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’ rights for ‘Sooryavanshi’


More than the action and Akshay Kumar’s daredevil stunts, what will excite fans of Rohit Shetty’s cinema is the news that the filmmaker has procured the rights to the rocking rain number Tip Tip Barsa Paani from Mohra of 1994 for his cop film Sooryavanshi of 2020. 

Buzz from the sets at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad where Rohit is shooting the next schedule of Sooryavanshi is that he is all set to shoot this sensuous number with Akshay and Katrina Kaif next week. The original had Akshay frolicking in the rain with the sultry Raveena Tandon and was one of the most successful and popular tracks from Mohra after Tu Cheez Badi Has Mast Mast.

The music for Mohra was composed by Viju Shah with lyrics by Indeevar and Anand Bakshi and Tip Tip Barsa Paani was teasingly sung by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik. More than this, fans will remember how seductive Raveena looked in her yellow saree as Akshay romanced her in the rain.

Rohit, who has a set pattern for his films, is unlikely to reinvent Tip Tip Barsa Paani majorly for Sooryavanshi when there is a successful formula from Mohra for the number. He is believed to be casting the gorgeous Katrina in a yellow chiffon saree for his version because Raveena gave it fantasy status 25 years ago that is still copied by Bollywood today. Besides, Rohit knows that Katrina’s sex quotient is second to none after having seen the actress romp in a yellow saree with Akshay in the rain number Gale Lag Ja from the comedy De Dana Dan ten years ago!
