Music lives on for RDB as Manj and Surj are back with their next composition, the smashing hit new title track Bajatey Raho with a pure hip hop feel. "I was very excited when I was given the chance to work on this song and it’s an honour to be associated with EROS yet again! I have always wanted to work on music that reflects the choice of the youth merged with the sounds of hip hop along with our
style. Fusion is the one thing that I loved producing with Kuly and this song has given me a chance to recreate a piece which I can dedicate to him" says Manj aka Manjeet (RDB).
“The song follows the same feel as that of the film Bajatey Raho. It’s all about
in the wrong way to get the right thing and I think that the duo has done a fabulous job maintaining this. The words are easy and one can sing along. This song, I feel can become the anthem of today’s youth who themselves believe in fighting crime by using bad to reach the good” says director Shashant A Shah.
RDB has been awarded as the Best Club DJ Bhangra at the UK Asian Music Awards and have also made their mark on the Brampton Walk of Fame. Other than some terrific work that they have done by fusing Western and 'bhangra' sounds, they have also got a solid footing in Bollywood post their collaboration with Akshay Kumar for his numerous hits like Shera Di Kaum (Speedy Singhs), Om Mangalam (Kambakkth Ishq), Paisa Paisa (De Dana Dan), Sing Is Kinng (Singh Is Kinng) and Rafta Rafta (Namastey London).
Now they are looking forward to repeating the feat with a non-Akshay starrer by joining hands with Krishika Lulla for Bajatey Raho which stars Vinay Pathak, Dolly Ahluwalia, Ranvir Shorey, and Tusshar forming an ensemble cast. "Their music has worked time and again and now after 'Naagin', I am so excited to bring on this number. It is as foot tapping as it gets," declares Krishika Lulla. Krishika Lulla also produced Raanjhanaa.
Bajatey Raho stars Dolly Ahluwalia, Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Tusshar, Ravi Kissen and Vishakha Singh. The film is produced jointly by EROS International and MSM Motion Pictures and is all set to release on 26th July 2013.
