Veteran actor Urmila Matondkar recently made a comeback on the big screen with Irrfan Khan starer Blackmail‘s new song Bewafa Beauty, reported Pinkvilla.

 The Abhinay Deo directorial witnesses the comeback of Urmila after a decade. She was last seen in 2008’s remake of 1980 film Karz, titled Karzzzz alongsde Himesh Reshammiya.

Of the film, producer Bhushan Kumar said, “Although Irrfan’s character in Blackmail is in a situation no man would want to be in, the mood of the film is tongue-in-cheek. We wanted a song that would be naughty and humorous without being vulgar.

Speaking about the song, Bhushan went on to say, “Bewafa Beautydepicts that perfectly. With Amitabh Bhattacharya’s amazing lyrics set to Amit Trivedi’s racy composition and Pawni Pandey’s spicy voice, picturised on a huge, magnetic star like Urmila, this song is set to burn the airwaves in an already scorching summer.”

Deo revealed that he did not want any old item number in the film, rather a song that adds meaning. “Initially, there was no song in the film but when we were discussing the film creatively, Bhushan felt there was definitely the need for such a song.”

He added, “By its name, Bewafa Beauty portrays that it’s about a beauty who is unfaithful, which is the premise of the film — a man whose wife is cheating on him.”

The director also shared that he aimed to revive the memory of Urmila. He explained, “Firstly, Urmila is a massive star, she is not an item girl. We were not looking for an item girl for this song. We wanted a performer – someone who has tremendous star value in the audience’s mind.”

He continued, “We also wanted someone who has not come in front of the silver screen for a while now. From all the names we came up with, I personally believe that the biggest and best name is Urmila. She fit the bill perfectly, is gorgeous, and an incredible dancer. Therefore, she was a perfect match for the song and film.”

Blackmail, which stars Irrfan, Kirti Kulhari, Divya Dutta and Arunoday Singh, is slated for release on April 6, 2018.
