‘Na Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’: When even fever could not curtail Sridevi’s passion
It seems surreal to think Sridevi is no more with us. The actress who had been wowing us with her fabulous and diverse performances for the past many years, breathed her last, last night in Dubai, at the age of 54. The talented performer completed a glorious 50 years in the film industry last year, and once again wowed us with her performance in ‘MOM’. Sridevi was an actress who had achieved an unforgettable mark for herself, ruling over the hearts of her countless admirers. But, to achieve this position the actress had put in a lot of her dedication and hard work, and we have proof of the same.
Not many are aware that the actress had shot for a song in late 80’s with a high fever of 103 degrees. And it was not that easy at all as this song was a rain dance number. It is the much popular track ‘Na jaane kahan se aayi hai’ from movie ‘ChaalBaaz’ (1989). (Also Check: ‘Mom’ first look: Karan Johar, Riteish Deshmukh and others can’t wait to see Sridevi’s film)
If facts are to be believed, the song was scheduled for a two-day shoot, and was choreographed by Saroj Khan. After wrapping up the first day’s work, Sridevi was down with high fever. But, the next day the actress reported on sets without fail and said that she will shoot for the song, though the makers were ready to cancel it owing to her ill health.
But, the actress gave her best shot and completed the song that day itself with a fever of 103 degrees. Everyone applauded Sridevi’s passion and dedication towards her work.
‘ChaalBaaz’ was released in year 1989 and was declared a super success at the box office. Talking about the song ‘Na Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’, it is still considered to one of the best rain songs in Bollywood.
Sridevi was honoured with the Filmfare Award for Best Actress for her brilliant dual role performance in this film, whereas Saroj Khan won the award for Best Choreography for the same rain song ‘Na Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’.
Changes the way you will look at the song now, doesn’t it? In no way could we have figured out that Sridevi was ill, looking at her energetic moves in the number.
Such was the life of this brilliant performer, cut short by fate. How we wish we could have seen her more on screen.
