Munni and Sheila have competition from an unexpected quarter – Ranbir Kapoor. The actor will be seen in his first-ever item song for UTV’s Chillar Party. His dance number will be the first for any children’s film. For the song, Ranbir dons a tapori (ragamuffin) avatar, inspired by one of the characters in the film.
"I fell in love with Chillar Party the moment I saw it. And I think this is the least I can do for something I have grown fond of," says Ranbir, adding, "I was blown away by the kids’ performances in the film. Although it is a typical masala entertainer, I’m happy that it also has other things to say besides only providing entertainment."
Chillar Party director Vikas Bahl informs that kids from his film wanted Ranbir for the song. "They themselves came up with idea of putting in an item song. And when Ranbir watched the film and loved it, kids suggested that he perform the song," says Vikas.
Shot in Film City on Monday, Tayn tayn fissh… has been choreographed by Bosco-Ceaser. The choreographer duo has mixed street dancing with contemporary style for Ranbir’s steps. "We have seen him dancing in Wake Up Sid (2009) and Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008). And we want to take Ranbir’s dancing to the next level," says Vikas. Composed by Amit Trivedi of Dev D (2009) fame, the song combines street instruments, local voices and dialects, with Amit and his mother providing vocals for it.
