“Chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai”
“Jungle Jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai..
Arre chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai phool khila hai..”
If you are born in 90’s and after reading above lines, you will immediately imagine a boy running in underwear in Jungle followed by a black panther “Bhaghira” and few wolfs.
“The Jungle book” was a very important part of 90’s kids on every Sunday everyone use to get up early to meet their friend “Mowgli” and go with him on an adventure ride. This ride use to start with the amazing title song “chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai phool khila hai”.

Now, Disney is coming up with a Movie “The Jungle Book” which is based on this series and everyone is waiting for this from the day the movie was announced but for me the movie was incomplete without its iconic song and Disney knows this as well. So, yesterday they have for which lyrics have been penned by Gulzar, Vishal Bhardwaj has composed the music.
Here is the song which was released on 21st March and I am sure it will take you to you childhood again.
Writer Mayur Puri, who wrote the dialogues for the Hindi version of The Jungle Book, had earlier said, “As a kid I was mesmerized by the world of Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo and Shere Khan. On top of it, Jon Favreau’s film is fantastic! So it’s a great opportunity for me to write the Hindi dialogues. The lines will maintain the original flavor but have a taste of India. Honestly, the most exciting and probably the most challenging thing to do in my entire career as a lyricist was writing the Hindi songs in The Jungle Book. The pressure was humongous. Firstly, because Gulzarsaab’s ‘chaddi pehan ke phool khila hai’ has set an extremely high benchmark. Secondly, I’ve been singing ‘Bare Necessities’ since I was 10 years old. To recreate new words in place of something you’ve been singing for 30 years is not an easy task. Working on Jungle Book is the kind of thing a writer has on his bucket list. I’ve ticked it.”
Directed by Jon Favrea, the new take on Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale, features Neel Sethi playing the role of Mowgli.
Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan, Nana Patekar, Om Puri and Shefali Shah have dubbed for the Hindi version of movie.
The film is scheduled for an April 8, 2016 release.
