Partygoers are always looking for that next dance number and Bollywood films seldom disappoint, since every release has a couple of such tracks on their albums. Now, the songs from Ramesh Taurani’s next action-thriller, Race 2, seem to have created a major buzz among dance music lovers as well. When
the new single from the film, ‘There’s a party on my mind’, was released, little did Taurani know that it would be so popular.
Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan look hot in a still from the movie Race 2.
“Ever since we released the song earlier last week, we have been getting calls and e-mails from DJs around the world, who want to remix it. Even Pritam was approached for the same. For now, we haven’t decided whom to select,” says Taurani.
DJs from clubs in Canada, USA, London, Dubai and India are on the list. “DJ Suketu has always remixed songs from my movies and he is keen to remix the song too. From the calls we’ve got so far, we have chosen four DJs and will announce the name of the one whose remix will be used in the music CD,” says Taurani.
Music director Pritam will decide which DJ to finally select, adds Taurani. “I will be involved in the decision too but of course he knows best,” he says. Though Taurani refuses to reveal the names of the shortlisted DJs, an insider says, “The New York-based DJ Jay Dabhi has been finalised for the remix.”
The song was shot on a beach in Turkey. “It takes place at a party to celebrate John Abraham’s character’s acquisition of many casinos. We flew in 70 dancers from Russia, since Turkey had none,” says the creative producer of the film, Jay Shewakramani.
