Singer Chinmayi Sripada, who gave birth to twins, a few days ago, took to Twitter and said she was happy to see her name in the tracklist credits of Ms Marvel, the Disney+ Hotstar series that featured her song, Tere Bina.
A remix version of Tere Bina, a song from the 2007 Mani Ratnam film Guru, was used by the makers of the Iman Vellani-fronted show in its third episode which premiered recently.
Other Hindi film songs that are featured in episode three of Ms Marvel include, Joote De Do Paise Le Lo from Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Hadippa from Dil Bole Hadipaa and Yeh Mera Dil from Don.
Also, part of the 12-part soundtrack is singer-songwriter Ritviz’s Thandi Hawa and For Aisha, a collaboration of international musical group MEMBA featuring American musician EVAN GIIA and Sufi singing duo Nooran Sisters.
This is not the first time the makers have floated Bollywood references into the show. The previous two episodes mentioned Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and his films Baazigar and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, alongside Pakistani singer-songwriter Hasan Raheem’s song Peechay Hutt.
Ms Marvel started streaming in India on Disney Plus Hotstar on June 8. It is directed by Adil El Arbi-Bilall Fallah, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Meera Menon.
Meera Menon was a fan long before she knew the show was going to happen. In an interview with Popsugar, she said her friend had given her the comic book years ago; she saw the cover, and it had this brown girl with bangles and this scarf. She was like, 'Oh man, whenever Marvel does anything with this, I hope I'm just somewhat in the position to be considered to be any part of it.'"
Meera was thrilled beyond words when she found out she'd be directing the second and third episodes. What she loves about the show is that it's this mashup of normal teen drama stuff and superhero stuff. “Jersey City and that featured these big cultural set pieces were the heart of the show and the heart of what made the character so lovable and relatable to me,” she stated in the interview.
