Singer Mika, who is making his acting debut in Suniel Shetty’s production Loot, has churned out a raunchy music video for the film. Co-actor Govinda was supposed to be part of the video, but he apparently opted out due to the concept and lyrics of the song — ‘PM se apna pyar hain, CM apna yaar hain, Gatbandhan sarkar hain yahan’ (I love the PM, CM’s my friend, there’s a coalition government).


“Govinda must’ve been scared, that’s why he didn’t appear for the shoot. He didn’t want the song in the film,” says Mika, who has written and composed the track. “It mentions Chota Rajan, Dawood Ibrahim, Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra besides the Prime Minister. But nothing is said against them.” He also reveals that after Govinda, Suniel also refused to shoot for the video.

However, Govinda denies any such dispute: “I was suddenly told that I have to do this song, so I couldn’t react to it. Have you heard it? It wasn’t part of the film and I’m never concerned about publicity. So there’s no question of an objection.”

The bold video also features Mika kissing a girl. “I didn’t want the scene, but my choreographer said the number is good and the kissing part would make it a big hit. Even I haven’t kissed a girl for a song in a long time,” he says.

Convinced that the Censor Board won’t have any issues with the song or its content, he adds, “If they didn’t have any problem with ‘Bhaag DK Bose…’, which clearly had cuss words, this will pass without a hitch.”
