- In Helicopter Eela, Kajol plays the role of an aspiring singer
- Ruk Ruk Ruk was originally a part of Ajay Devgn and Tabu's Vijaypath
- Helicopter Eela releases on October 12
Heard the latest song from Kajol's upcoming film Helicopter Eela yet? Ajay Devgn (producer of Kajol's film) bought his fans a one-way ticket to the Nineties by recreating the song Ruk Ruk Ruk from his 1994 film Vijaypath, co-starring Tabu. In the Pradeep Sarkar-directed film, Kajol plays the titular Eela, an aspiring singer, who enjoys writing songs and recording videos (her onscreen son reveals in the trailer of the film, remember?). Eela was given an opportunity to record a dummy song and she rose to the occasion. The song proves that Eela thinks that she is totally worthy of being a superstar but her feet are firmly on ground. At the end of the song, when the music composers, one of whom is Anu Malik (the original composer of the track) ask her who she is, Eela replies: "I'm the dummy (singer)."
As the song hit the Internet today, actress Tabu, on whom the song was originally picturised, caught up with Kajol and shared pictures of them on social media. "Kajol recreates Ruk Ruk! Stop and watch."

Helicopter Eela is the story of an overprotective mother - a helicopter mom, as Kajol described in her interviews - and her teenaged son, played by National Award-winning actor Riddhi Sen. Actors Tota Roy Chowdhury and Neha Dupia also feature in Helicopter Eela, which will open in theatres on October 12.
On an unrelated note, Kajol and Ajay Devgn recently trended when the latter pranked Twitter users by sharing a number saying fans can catch up with his actress wife on WhatsApp. The phone number, which Ajay Devgn shared may or may not belong to Kajol IRL. You can read all about it here.
