Songs/films that honour the culture of a region are always respected by the audience. Telangana's Bathukamma festival has been explored by Telugu films lately. But what is unique this time is that a Bollywood film has honoured the Bathukamma tradition with all sincerity.
The Hindi-language movie 'Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan', which stars our very own Butta Boman Pooja Hegde as the female lead, has paid a rich tribute to the local tradition through a song titled after the popular festival. Shot in an authentic setting, the song also features Venkatesh, the beloved family hero. Salman Khan, the film's mass hero, makes an entry towards the end in traditional clothing.
The 'Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo' beauty looks gorgeous in traditional attire. She dances with so much grace n elegance that it mesmerises you. She brings back the charm of her early days as an actress.
On the occasion of the song's release, the pan-India star actress said that Bathukamma is a one-of-its-kind festival in the rich Indian culture. "It is celebrated with a lot of devotion by women in Telangana. I am honored to be a part of the 'Bathukamma' festival through this song, a tribute to Telangana's beautiful flower festival, from our team #KisiKaBhaiKisiKiJaan," Pooja added.
