Madhuri Dixit Brings Back Her 90s Charm In The New Song For Maja Ma Movie, Boom Padi
Yesterday we got to see the trailer for Madhuri Dixit’s latest project, Maja Ma. After the cancellation of her OTT show The Fame Game, the Bollywood star has already started giving fans what they want. In the recent trailer for her film Maja Ma, Madhuri can be seen in her Garba avatar. The colourful upbeat trailer was an indicator that we were going to see an original Madhuri number and our expectations were exceeded as a day after the trailer Amazon Prime, dropped the music video for the first song in the film titled, Boom Padi.
The peppy dance number takes us back in time and gives us a Madhuri we thought we’d never see again. The energetic beats, the colourful imagery and Shreya Ghoshal’s magical voice, combined with Madhuri’s upbeat dance moves, give us a classic Bollywood number, that seems to be long forgotten.
The music video opens up with beautiful shots of the lively Garba festivities, followed by Madhuri stepping into the frame in traditional ghagra choli, as she delivers the performance of a lifetime, with her energetic dancing moves and dramatic facial expressions. Later she is joined by Barkha Singh, Srishti Shrivastava, and the other cast members. The music video gives away a very typical old Bollywood campy vibe which we live for.
Singer Shreya Ghoshal went on to say that she was so honoured to have shared her first song in the industry with Madhuri in Bhansali’s Devdas, and as Boom Padi is Dixit’s first Garba number Ghoshal couldn’t be more honoured.”
The fans in the comments of the music video, showered Dixit with love, calling her an icon, and a true Bollywood legend. They were also amazed by the fact that Dixit was almost 55 and was still able to keep up with dancers half her age. Some fans also went on to say that Bollywood was blessed to have the diva and we couldn’t agree more.
