New Delhi, Feb 8 (IANS) Amit Kumar has re-recorded his father's hit number "Naino mein sapna" for Sajid Khan "Himmatwala" remake. The filmmaker says it was like being part of history.

Music directors Sajid-Wajid have recreated the music of the chartbuster, keeping in sync with today's music. Melodious Shreya Ghoshal has lent her voice for the female part of the number.

"Re-recording 'Naino mein sapna' for me was like being a part of history. Never before has a son sung the same song in the same style which was rendered by his father 30 years ago," Sajid said in a statement.

"When Amit Kumar started singing Kishoreda's lines, it was almost like Kishoreda had come alive to sing the song for us. There was only one Kishore Kumar and there will be only one Amit Kumar," said the director.

The new version is shot on Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah, while director K. Raghavendra Rao had shot the original on Jeetendra and Sridevi for his 1983 hit.
