The latest song from Kajol's upcoming film Helicopter Eela has been released. Ajay Devgn (producer of Kajol's film) bought his fans a one-way ticket to the Nineties by recreating the song Ruk Ruk Ruk from his 1994 film Vijaypath, co-starring Tabu. In the Pradeep Sarkar-directed film, Kajol plays the titular Eela, an aspiring singer, who enjoys writing songs and recording videos (her onscreen son reveals in the trailer of the film, remember?). Eela was given an opportunity to record a dummy song and she rose to the occasion. The song proves that Eela thinks that she is totally worthy of being a superstar but her feet are firmly on ground.
At the end of the song, when the music composers, one of whom is Anu Malik (the original composer of the track) ask her who she is, Eela replies: "I'm the dummy (singer)." As the song hit the Internet today, actress Tabu, on whom the song was originally picturised, caught up with Kajol and shared pictures of them on social media. "Kajol recreates Ruk Ruk! Stop and watch."

The original song was sung by Alisha Chinai for the film Vijaypath and was picturised on Tabu and Ajay Devgn. Anu Malik composed this popular track which was penned by Shyam Anuragi. The new version has been composed by Raghav Sachar and Palomi Ghosh has given the vocals. While in the old version, it was Tabu’s character who was singing on the streets to gather Ajay Devgn’s attention, in the new one, it is Kajol’s character who does the singing. The music video then shows Kajol dancing to the tunes of the song on a really bright and colourful set.
