Vandemataram replaces Jana Gana Mana in “Rann”
Ram Gopal Varma’s film “Rann” ran into censor trouble after the film’s first look was revealed with the song “Jana Gana Mann Rann”. The Censor Board ordered for the removal of the song from the film. RGV and producers Madhu Mantena and Sheetal Vinod Talwar appealed to the tribunal and went to court but to no avail.
RGV has now replaced “Jana Gana Mann Rann” with “Vande Mataram”. He says there are no lip sync songs in “Rann” but all the songs including “Vande Mataram” will be heard as background music. He says that each song is related to the theme of “Rann” and the songs would only be for duration of 30 seconds or at the most 60 seconds in the film.
“Rann” deals with the media industry and Amitabh Bachchan plays media bigwig Harshvardhan Malik in the film. The star cast includes Riteish Deshmukh, Paresh Rawal, Mohnish Behl, Suchitra Krishnamurthy and Gul Panag.
