Kiara is sensual in ‘Tu cheez badi…’: Raveena

Raveena Tandon, Bollywood’s original “Tu cheez badi hai mast mast” actress, has lauded Kiara Advani for slipping into her shoes for a new version of the 1990s chartbuster.

The new version of the song features in the upcoming film “Machine”, while the original one was picturised on Raveena in “Mohra”.

“It’s high time that someone did the remake. I am so happy that such a sweet and beautiful girl like Kiara is performing on the song. She is very young and innocent. Kiara is looking very pretty and innocent. At the same time, she is sensual in the song,” Raveena said on the sidelines of the shoot of TV show “Sabse Bada Kalakar”.

Kiara, who met Raveena for the first time, showed her the first cut of the recreated track.

Talking about it, Kiara said: “Of course, I can’t step into ma’am’s (Raveena’s) shoes, but I am happy I am showing her the song first before anyone else. I want her blessings and good wishes because she is the original ‘Mast mast’ girl.”

“Machine” depicts the story of racing enthusiasts Sarah (Kiara Advani) and Ransh (Mustafa, son of Abbas Burmawala of Abbas-Mustan duo), who meet each other under mysterious circumstances. As their bond becomes stronger, they eventually fall in love. However, new things begin to unfold, which change their lives forever.

The film, releasing on March 17, is directed by Abbas-Mustan and is being produced by Jayantilal Gada.
