Today marks 30 years since the release of one of Subhash Ghai’s smash hit films, Khalnayak. Released in 1993, this film was a huge hit with fans and the songs from the film can still be heard in every home. You must have heard the smash hit song “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai” from this movie, but do you know that the singer Alka Yagnik who sang it was also ashamed to sing that song? Alka Yagnik never thought that this song would become such a big hit.
According to a Hindustan Times report, when Alka Yagnik remembered this song, she said that she used to find the lyrics of this song very strange. In addition, he was ashamed to sing this song. She said I wasn’t entirely sure about this song because I found the lyrics a bit strange. When I went to rehearsal, they just gave me my lines. Not from Ila ji. At that time I was only reading “Choli Mein Dil Hai Mera”. I knew nothing of the rest of his lines, which I learned later.
Alka continued: In the beginning I was a bit shy and hesitant because of the lyrics, but later it turned into a great experience because Ila ji was there. We have taken the trouble to respond to these lines. What seemed like a mischievous conversation between two sisters or two girlfriends turned into a truly awesome and unforgettable experience with the presence of Elaji.
We tell you that this song was written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal decorated it with the melodies of their music. The film was released in 1993 and proved to be a blockbuster, and its song made for a special reception.
