Believe it or not, the drug anthem ‘Dum Maro Dum Mit Jaye Gham’ from Hare Rama Hare Krishna was to be sung by Lata Mangeshkar! At least that was composer Rahul Dev Burman’s unique plan. But then the movie’s producer-director-leading man Dev Anand, who had a eager ear for music, urged Asha Bhosle for ‘Dum Maro Dum’.
“Lata sang two beautiful solos ‘Phoolon Ka Taaron Ka, Ho Ho Re Ghungroo’ and a lovely duet ‘Kanchi Re’ for me in Hare Rama Hare Krishna. ‘Dum Maro Dum’ didn’t seem right for her,” Dev Saab advised me.
That’s how Asha stepped in. Even after her sterling singing the music nearly didn’t make it into the movie.
When Dev Anand heard ‘Dum Maro Dum’ he advised RD he discovered it unusual and determined to drop it from the movie. In a panic RD pleaded to at the very least let the music be half of the movie’s soundtrack album, if not half of the movie.
Eventually ‘Dum Maro Dum’ was filmed and have become one of the largest hits of RD and Asha’s profession. Ashaji as soon as advised me ‘Dum Maro Dum’ was the most requested music at her stay live shows after ‘Oh Mere Sona Re’ (Teesri Manzil).
