A decade and a half after Ghulam and 'Aati Kya Khandala', Aamir Khan has finally found his match. Emraan Hashmi, who has been a trailblazer when it comes to romantic Sufi outings, has turned over a new page (and 'flipped his collar' in the process) with an out and out 'tapori' number 'Flip Your Collar'. Interestingly, it not just has a reference to 'Khandala' here but also plays around in the same mode, what with Emraan wooing newbie Humaima Malick in as massy a manner as one could expect him to be seen in.
"This is one song that not just reminds of 'Aati Kya Khandala' but also has a similar stage and setting. What sets it apart is the presentation though," says an insider, "If Aamir Khan charmed Rani Mukerji with his antics in Ghulam, Emraan Hashmi is being cool, yet a 'tapori' at heart, while proposing to Humaima Malick in Raja Natwarlal. The song is bound to be a hit with the masses and those who loved Aamir Khan in 'Aati Kya Khandala' could well be 'flipping their collar' with the beats of this song."
"I thought that now was the time to get back to basics with a film like this," says Emraan Hashmi, "It brings all such components like foot tapping dance numbers and some naughty moments, while amplifying them to a greater degree."
While he is also addressing the gallery with another 'tapori' number 'Dukki Tikki', Emraan Hashmi does confess that he missed out on these fun moments for last couple of years.
"Yes, it's something that I had missed out on. I do realize that there are certain components that my films are known for. My last couple of releases were devoid of that though. I am happy to bring it all back to my audience now. So you can pretty much join me and flip the collar," winks Emraan Hashmi before signing off.
