Zoya Akhtar is all set to bring back the magic of the rock and roll era going by the latest song ‘Va va voom’ from her upcoming directorial The Archies.
The makers of the film have now unveiled its second foot-tapping number song titled ‘Va va voom’, a groovy time machine to the ‘60s rock and roll era.
Talking about the song Akhtar said, “Va Va Voom is a classic Archie comic term. It’s a compliment to describe a girl he likes. A way of saying she is cool. This song encapsulates the energy of the 60s rock ‘n’ roll era and romanticises teenage love.”
“Archie wears his heart on his sleeve as they dance to a super fun Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy composed tune. My dad Va va voomed it and Ganesh has nailed the choreography. The actors just followed his lead and as gruelling as it was we had a blast shooting it,” she said.
The song is composed by the dynamic trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, penned by lyricist Javed Akhtar and sung by Tejas Menon. The video features Dot (Aditi), Agastya Nanda, Khushi Kapoor, Mihir Ahuja, Suhana Khan, Vedang Raina, and Yuvraj Menda in the spotlight.
A heartfelt coming-of-age tale set in the idyllic backdrop of the 1960s, The Archies draws viewers into the lives of a beloved group of teenagers. The film is a collaborative effort between Netflix India, Tiger Baby, Archie Comics, and Graphic India.
Helmed by Akhtar, the highly anticipated film will be released on Netflix worldwide on December 7.
