‘Backmail’: Urmila Matondkar is a killer in ‘Bewafa Beauty’ song


After a long gap of nine years, the ‘Chamma Chamma’ actress Urmila Motondkar is set to ablaze the silver screen with her jalwa again. The ‘Rangeela’ actress defies age and flaunts her sensuous figure in the special song, ‘Bewafa Beauty’ from Irrfan Khan starrer ‘Blackmail’.

‘Bewafa Beauty’ song was crooned by Pawni Pandey and lyrics penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Amit Trivedi has composed the song.

Urmila is seen flaunting her well toned figure on a stage as she exerts a Rampuri knife and sings, “Rampuri ek chaaku jigar ke paar kar gai, soomdi mein bhole baalam ka bantaadhar kar gai.”

Director Abhinay Deo reveals how 'Bewafa Beauty' came to her mind, “Initially, there was no song in the film. But when we were discussing the film creatively, Bhushan, being T-Series and having a keen ear for music, felt that there should definitely be a lip-sync song. I already had an idea of including a song which could take the story ahead. I did not want an item number that comes and goes. We knew that the song should be able to say something in the film. By its name, ‘Bewafa Beauty’ states that it is about a beauty who is unfaithful, which is the premise of the film — a man whose wife is cheating on him.” 

Deo casts Urmila for the song because he wants a star from the past. As he explains, “Firstly, Urmila is a massive star, she is not an item girl. We were not looking for an item girl for this song. We wanted a performer, someone who has tremendous value as a star in the audience's mind. We also wanted someone who has not come in front of the silver screen for a while now. From all the names we came up with, I personally believe that the biggest and best name is Urmila. She fit the bill perfectly, is gorgeous, and is an incredible dancer — a perfect match for the song and film.”

Blackmail, the Irrfan-starrer has been creating waves ever since its hilarious teaser released which piqued the interest of the audience by raising the question: “What will you do if you find your wife in bed with someone else?”

The quirky comedy boasts an ensemble cast of Irrfan, Kirti Kulhari, Divya Dutta, Arunoday Singh, Omi Vaidya, Anuja Sathe, Pradhuman Singh Mall, Gajraj Rao, among others.

Produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar and RDP Motion Pictures’ Abhinay Deo, ‘Black???’, directed by Abhinay Deo, is slated to release on April 6, 2018.
