Will Smith loves Badshah’s Aladdin song, sends special message. Watch video
Badshah took to his Instagram page to share a video in which Will has shared his appreciation, as well as spoken about how he wanted a sequence in the movie to be Bollywood level.
Will, who plays Genie in the movie, saw the song in Japan, and said: "Badshah, great work man...that is beautiful...looking at the things that you shot against what is in the movie, that is some good production you got going on there. It's funny when we were making the sequence, what I kept saying to Guy Ritchie (director), it’s gotta be Bollywood level man....don't let the sequence not be Bollywood level. You know I always wanted to be in a Bollywood dance sequence, so this is beautiful man. Love the work man, really appreciate it. Thank you."
Badshah is thrilled with Will's words. "I guess Will Smith paaji likes the song I did for Aladdin. In theatres May 24! It's high time you do a proper Bollywood film sir," Badshah wrote for the actor, who appeared in a cameo in Student of the Year 2.
Aladdin is a live-action remake of the beloved animated classic. Disney India will release it in the country on May 24 in English, Hindi Tamil and Telugu.
