With the IPL poised to take off, promotional music videos have become a talking point.
Daler Mehndi's anthem for Preity Zinta's team is already on the channels. Now Shah Rukh Khan's Knight Riders are about to release a hot new album titled 2 Hot 2 Cool. It has five songs. Two are by Bappi Lahiri and two by Pritam and one by Vishal Shekhar. Jeet lo by Vishal-Shekhar is already on air.
SRK will feature in the video of one of the songs composed by Lahiri. Lahiri has reportedly convinced Khan to lend his voice to the song too. The other song will be sung by Usha Uthhup.
Pritam is working with SRK on Billoo Barber as well.
"I was initially supposed to score only one of the songs. But Shah Rukh liked the second track too, so now I have to work at breakneck speed. The album will have to be released soon," he says.
Fast forward D-day is apparently sometime next week but Pritam refuses to reveal more details. Currently Pritam is also busy with the scores of Singh is Kingg and Kidnap.
Singh is Kingg will obviously have a generous dose of Punjabi.
"I'm sure once it's out I'll have to change my name from Pritam Chakraborty to Pritam Singh," the composer jokes.
"In fact, thanks to Paape pyaar karke (Pyaar ke Side Effects), Nagada and Mauja hi mauja (Jab We Met), a poster advertising a concert in Delhi hyped me as Pritam Singh."
