From Vidya to Ali Zafar, it’s time for ‘Ooh La La’

Guess ‘Ooh La La’ may soon stake claim for being the newest anthem in the B-town. Last year it was the turn of Vidya Balan and Naseeruddin Shah to first go ‘ooh laa laa’ for The Dirty Picture. Its 2012 now and it is none other than Ali Zafar who is presenting his own take on ‘Ooh La La’.

“For his upcoming film London Paris New York where he has composed, written and sung all the songs, there is one that goes by the title ‘Ooh La La'”, informs a source,

It is an entirely different song though with just the key words being similar. While Vishal-Shekhar had given a fun flavour to ‘Ooh La La’ which was presented as a 80s song, Ali’s song is very contemporary. The song has been very interestingly collaborated as it sees the coming together of trance and underground house with a mix of sufi and pop. It would be an unforgettable affair for sure.

Incidentally, this isn’t the only USP of ‘Ooh La La’. The song is also special since it brings two female vocalists from Pakistan – Hadiqa Kiyani and Sanam Marvi.

Though there have been quite a few male singers from Pakistan who have found popularity in Hindi film music or pop circuit, there haven’t been many female singers who have made a cut in Bollywood. However, Ali plans to change that with ‘Ooh La La’ by bringing Hadiqa Kiyani and Sanam Marvi. They are very popular singers out there in Pakistan and come with a very good training background. Both of them have collaborated on ‘Ooh La La’ where some parts have also been sung by Ali.

the source continues.

When contacted, Ali couldn’t shy away from the irony of the situation. He said,

You know what, I had actually put together this song much before ‘Ooh La La’ from The Dirty Picture started making waves. In any case our song is totally different. It is set in Paris and is basically on the lines of ‘Ooh La La’, the commonly used phrase in Paris. When you would hear the song, you would realise that it has its own identity.
