Actor Sammir Dattani, who plays a trained government spy in search of his identity in Mani Shankar's Mukhbir, will sing for the film's music video too.

Though the film will have no songs, its makers have hit on the idea of a music video for promoting the thriller.

Says Sammir: "It would be full circle for me. I started my career at 17 with a music video called Valentine's Day. And now I'll feature in another music video where I'll get to sing."

Sammir has been taking singing lessons for quite some time.

"In fact, I have been doing my practice as regularly as possible. I am told I have a singing voice. And I believe I can carry off a tune quite well. In fact, my ex-girlfriend used to say I sing the Titanic theme really well. But she was biased."

"Songs are the only way to grab TV spots for a film. Even Prakash Jha had to put an item song in Apaharan for the TV promotions. Our Mukhbir music video will be more conceptual. We will take the camera to all those spots in Hyderabad where my character Kailash lives out his intriguing adventure."

Actor Sammir Dattani, who plays a trained government spy in search of his identity in Mani Shankar's Mukhbir, will sing for the film's music video too.

The film, which also has Om Puri, Sushant Singh and Suniel Shetty in the cast, requires a lot of physical action, says Sammir.

"Apart from making me connect with emotions which I never knew existed within me, the role in Mukhbir requires plenty of physical action from me. I love that. That is why I am enjoying shooting for Nisha Chainani's Maratthon as well.

"I participated in the Mumbai Marathon in support of our film. I enjoyed the experience of being out there in the city with so many different sections of people. I think I'll participate in the marathon every year."
