The Indian fans of “The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” are in for a treat with Disney India acquiring the rights to Bappi Lahiri’s popular song Jhoom Jhoom Jhoom Baba, to be used in a promotional music video for the Indian release of the film, adding a Bollywood punch to it. The studio decided to pick this particular 1980’s song as they believe it is in perfect sync with the spirit of the film.
The first edition to the film in 2014, featured classic retro songs too, bringing them back in vogue and “The Gaurdians of the Galaxy Vol.2” promises to take that trend forward.
Amrita Pandey, Vice President- Studios, Disney India says “ Guardians of the Galaxy are a super cool set of superheroes who believe in having a ball as they save the galaxy. As music is a dominant aspect of the movie , we thought it would be a great idea to revive a retro hit dance number for the Hindi version. After listening to some popular songs from the 1980s , the team unanimously felt that this particular song echoes the fun spirit associated with the guardians. The song is about making the best of the moment and enjoying it, just like these superheroes. We hope the mash-up for ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ will be enjoyed by existing and innumerable new fans in India.”
