urmila matondkar, chama chama song, sa re ga ma pa

Bollywood actress Urmila Matondkar has ruled the hearts of many with her acting chops and groove on the dance floor. The Rangeela star has grooved to many hit songs that are popular to this date. But one song is worth mentioning. It is none other than the Chama Chama song that left Urmila in bruises.

Recently Urmila appeared as a special guest on the singing reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. Here she revealed how she got scratches on her body because she had to wear 15 kgs of jewellery and groove to the number.


Urmila Matondkar during an episode of ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ was stunned after looking at the performance of contestant Ananya on the famous dance track ‘Chamma Chamma’.

Here is what she said:

Talking about the song, Urmila said, “Your performance was amazing. Interestingly, it reminded me of an incident while we were shooting for it. When we did a look test for this particular song, Rajkumar Santoshi Sir asked me if this jewellery was too much to handle. He also asked me if I would like to change a bit or maybe reduce some pieces of jewellery because he was not very keen on changing the steps of the song. However, I told him I will manage with the jewellery as it is really important to maintain that banjaran look in the song.”

Urmila further added: “I was informed about the steps and everything just one night before the shoot and I wasn’t ready to shoot for the song the very next day. However, I still went ahead and during the first shot for the song I got badly hurt by the earrings that I was wearing, I still remember it very clearly. And when the shoot was finally over, I could see so many scratches on my body I can’t even tell you, because I had to wear jewellery of about 15 kilograms. The point is that we had put in a lot of effort to make this song, which is now one of the most iconic ones and we were so happy that all our hard work paid off.”

‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’, judged by Himesh Reshammiya, Vishal Dadlani and Shankar Mahadevan, airs on Zee TV.
