Egyptian artiste Shaimaa Elshayeb has sung Habibi Radha, Arabic version of Radha from Jab Harry Met Sejal, starring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma. Habibi Radha, which released on Friday, is a fusion between subtle Arabic percussions and Indian tunes.
Shaimaa said in a statement, “I am extremely proud to be part of this release with an Indian and international superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh Khan has an amazing following in Egypt and around the Arab world and I hope I can deliver the bubbly and dancy feeling of this song to the whole Arab world.”
Adding on, Sanujeet Bhujabal, Marketing Director, Sony Music India, said, “As a part of an overall music strategy for ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, we are creating multiple versions of the song in different languages. Since the talented Shah Rukh Khan has an immense fan following in the Middle East, we decided that we must create an Arabic version for which our first choice was the gifted Shaimaa.”
The soundtrack of the film is composed by Pritam. The movie is set for a worldwide release on August 4.
