The latest track from Gold, Chad Gayi Hai features Akshay Kumar dancing in an inebriated state and the composers of the song, Sachin–Jigar have revealed that they took inspiration from RD Burman’s Chura Liya Hai Tumne (Yaadon Ki Baaraat, 1973), to create the fun number.
The duo played with an array of glass bottles and tumblers to create beats for Gold’s Chadh Gai Hai. “He (Burman) had used a glass to create music in the song. In fact, he often used real elements to make his beats. Since the song was about getting intoxicated, we decided to use liquor bottles to add a distinct effect,” revealed Jigar.
Interestingly, the duo requested for as many as 100 bottles and glass tumblers to create sounds of different frequencies. “The bottles and cans were from different brands, which helped us procure the right sound. We also imported a few. Eventually, only a limited number was used for the final song,” he further added.
Rendered by Vishal Dadlani, the track took 20 days to be crafted. Sachin Sangvi says, “We have been working on the film for over 18 months and this song was a last-minute addition. We created four versions before zeroing in on this final cut. We wanted a modern sound that didn’t deceive the era that the film is based in.” He added that director Reema Kagti asked Dadlani to sing in a Bengali accent, as Akshay is playing a Bong.
Gold is slated to release on Independence Day.
