The Indian Idol runner-up, Karunya, has bagged his first professional singing assignment in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Munnabhai 2nd Innings.

Highly impressed with his vocal skills, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra had the talented and versatile singer record a track Aane Char Aane for his forthcoming comic caper. The track will be picturised on Munnabhai himself, Sanjay Dutt.

With lyrics by Swanand Kirkire and music by Shantanu Moitra, Aane Char Aane was recorded by Karunya on Monday at Media Mind Studio in Mumbai.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani too were present at the recording.

Talking to reporters later, Vinod said he thought Karunya being a new singer, will probably take the whole day to sing the song, but he finished in fifteen minutes flat.

Vinod said he discovered Karunya in a rather interesting way. He was in Los Angeles, writing his next script.

His sister, Shelly burst into the room in tears. Vinod thought something dreadful had happened. But Shelly was crying because she had just found out that Karunya had not become the Indian Idol.

Vinod had no idea who Karunya was but found out as soon as he returned.

The film's music composer Shantanu Moitra did his voice test for the much awaited Munnabhai 2nd Innings.

Karunya passed and got the famous Jadoo ki Jhappi from Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani.

The light hearted comedy, starring Sanjay Dutt once again in the lead role as the good hearted goon Munnabhai supported by Arshad Warsi as the inimitable "Circuit", is slated for release on August 25.

The original writer-producer-director team of Munnabhai MBBS - Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani wield their magic once again.

The film will have music by Shantanu Moitra, lyrics by Swanand Kirkire, cinematography by CK Muraleedharan and production design by Nitin Chandrakant Desai.
