Akira Kurosawa with another director mentioned in the song

In Bollywood films, it’s quite common to see a dance number at the end of a movie that has little to do with the plot called an “Item number.” This item number, from a popular comedy called Chintu Ji, instead of using tribal gibberish—which was apparently the original idea—employs the names of international film directors:

Tarantino, Wilder, Capra
Ozu, Bertolucci, Peckinpah
Fellin,i Visconti, Oshima
Coppola… Coppola

Wyler, Hitchcock, Wajda
Mizoguchi, de Palma
Wyler ,Hitchcock, Wajda
Brian de Palma

Akira Kurosawa, Vittorio de Sica (repeats 4 times)

Bertolucci… Bertolucci, Lumet Aha Lumet
Bertolucci… Bertolucci Oh…
Sergio Leone… Sergio Leone… Truffaut Aha Truffaut
Sergio Leone… Sergio Leone… Oh…

Woody Allen… Woody Allen… B. DeMille C B. DeMille
Woody Allen… Woody Allen… Oh…
Milos Forman… Milos Forman… Godard Aha Godard
Milos Forman… Milos Forman Oh…
