Upcoming movie ‘Bazaar’might have attracted a lot of attention as it marks the acting debut of the late actor Vinod Mehra’s son, Rohan Mehra. However, it has another very exciting and edgy aspect to it: It will see the handsome Nawab Saif Ali Khan making a rapping debut with none other than the rapping maestro Yo Yo Honey Singh.
The duo has collaborated to sing a Punjabi rock number which has been composed by Singh himself and he will be giving the playback for it with Khan, as reported by Mumbai Mirror.
“Saif knows a lot about music since he has been playing the guitar for over two decades. He’s also performed at concerts, both internationally and in India, and is a huge fan of jazz, blues and rock ’n roll. He takes an active interest in the score of his films as well and was excited when Nikkhil and Gauravv sounded him out on a rap alongside Honey,” said a source close to the development.
The film’s ensemble cast, including Chitrangda Singh and Radhika Apte, will feature in the music video which will be shot in Mumbai in May.
For the Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK-directed 2014 romcom Happy Ending, the actor had made his onscreen musical debut, strummimng the guitar and singing a part of “Khamma Ghani” with Papon.
As the name suggests, ‘Bazaar’ is based on different stories revolving around stock market with Khan essaying the role of a street-smart businessman Nawab. The film also features Atul Kulkarni and Anupriya Goenka in significant roles. Amaal Mallik and Tanishk Bagchi have composed the film’s soundtrack.
Meanwhile, Saif Ali Khan has nearly wrapped up the shoot of his upcoming film with director Navdeep Singh. The film was earlier titled Soorma, however since the title of the film is already taken, the makers are contemplating calling the film Dusshera.
