Eid is Salman Khan’s lucky date. All the films– Wanted (September 18, 2009), Dabangg (September 10, 2010), Ek Tha Tiger (August 15, 2012) and Kick (July 25, 2014)— which released during the festival went on to become huge earners.
The actor is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that his upcoming film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, is this Eid’s big attraction. Two weeks before the film opens, he has started shooting a special video song, Aaj ki party meri taraf se, in Mumbai. It will release next week.
Buzz is, Sallu has crooned the Pritam composition. But Mirror has learnt that it’s actually Mika Singh who has lent his voice to the track. It is penned by Shabbir Ahmed and choreographed by Remo D’souza.
Earlier too, Salman’s songs like Dhinka chika, Jumme ki raat and Hangover have forged a strong connect with the masses. However, this will be the first time the makers have decided to shoot a song which won’t be a part of the story-telling.
Confirming this, director Kabir Khan says, “The idea was to come up with a celebratory song for Eid which would not be incorporated in the film. But you will see both Salman and Kareena dancing to the party number in the video.”
