Saif On Recreating Ole Ole



Saif Ali Khan sang and danced  to  success with the chartbuster Jab bhi koi ladki dole   mera  dil diwana  bole Ole Ole in the  Akshay Kumar-Kajol-Saif starrer Yeh Dillagi in  1994.

Says  Saif happily, “It’s  funny to do your own  re-mix.I’ve been around for a while.It’s  not really performed.Since  this new version of Ole  ole  is only as part  of  the  background music .So it’s been done in post-production.We haven’t done a full-on item based on the song Ole  ole  in  Jawani Jaaneman.  Maybe  we  should have.It’s been used  more  in the  background,really.”
