The iconic song ‘Jumma Chumma’ from the family-action drama Hum (1991) has acquired a cult status of sorts for generations. The steps of the dance track featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Kimi Katkar too have become quite legendary. Recently, the choreographer of the track and popular dancer himself, Chinni Prakash recalled the first time he had showed the hook step to Big B to get his approval.
Amitabh Bachchan found the ‘Jumma Chumma’ step to be ‘vulgar’, revealed choreographer Chinni Prakash; he got approval from Jaya Bachchan
In the show Weekend with Ramesh, Chinni Prakash reminisced about the time he wanted to know what Amitabh Bachchan had to say about the step of ‘Jumma Chumma’. The choreographer revealed that the megastar found the step not only vulgar but he also suggested to change it. Chinni Prakash said, “He (Amitabh) saw the hook step I did for ‘Jumma Chumma’ and said, ‘It is vulgar. What are you doing? It looks bad.’ I said we could try something different but then he suggested we could try the steps and could leave out later it if it did not look good.”
However, Amitabh’s wife Jaya Bachchan approved of the step and asked them to retain it. She was also convinced that it will become a popular one and will be remembered by audiences in generations. “When we saw the song after editing, Jaya Bachchan was also present and she was happy to see that step. She said ‘This is the best step, people will not forget this’. Jaya Ji felt the hook step would become a hit. Even if Amitabh was not really okay with the hook step, it was Jaya ji who said the hook step will be remembered by everyone even in the upcoming eras. She even asked Amitabh Bachchan to retain the hook step in the song,” added the choreographer.
Hum also featured Rajinikanth, Govinda, Deepa Sahi, Shilpa Shirodkar, Danny Denzongpa, Anupam Kher, among others and it was directed by Mukul S. Anand.
