Malaika Arora Goes ‘Wooohooo’ After Munni Badnaam Hui Gets Included In England's New School Music Curriculum
Malaika Arora is mighty impressed as her song, Munni Badnaam Hui is now part of the new music curriculum guidance of the Department for Education (DfE) in England
Surprisingly, actor Malaika Arora’s one of the most popular songs, Munni Badnaam Hui has found a place in the new music curriculum guidance of the Department for Education (DfE) in England. According to a report in PTI, among other songs like Kishori Amonkar’s Sahela Re, Anoushka Shankar’s Indian Summer, AR Rahman’s Jai Ho, this popular item number from Dabangg has also been included in the curriculum for the students to understand the Indian musical references for diverse musical traditions. Seeing this, Malla is impressed as she shared the same on her Instagram stories and wrote, ‘Wooohooo’.
“It is important to recognise that modern British identity is rich and diverse, resulting in communities which celebrate and explore their own specific, localised ‘cultural capital’. Kishori Amonkar was one of the leading vocalists of Indian classical music in the 20th century. Amonkar’s approach to music emphasised the spiritual as articulated in her statement that ‘To me, it [music] is a dialogue with the divine, this intensely focused communication with the ultimate other’. Further listening might include performances where the melody is instrumental, such as the music of Ravi and Anoushka Shankar,” the guidance reads.
“Item numbers feature in Bollywood movies without about the plot, and while the protagonist, policeman Chulbul, enters this song the main performer/producer, Malaika Arora, only appears in this number. The song includes many typical features of Bollywood films in its music, dance, and colourful visuals”, the guidance added.
Munni Badnaam Hui song was featured in Salman Khan’s 2011 film, Dabangg. The song is sung by Mamta Sharma and Aishwarya while it is composed by Lalit Pandit.
