Rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has made a special video for “Chennai Express”, called “Thalaivar Tribute (Lungi Dance)”.
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan reveals that it is a tribute to legendary actor Rajinikanth who has been given the title Thalaivar, the supreme leader by his fans.
“It’s a very naughty nice song and inshallah it should be out in a few days. It’s not part of the film but it adds to the flavour of the film. That’s why I did it. Timing was very good. It’s very naughty, very sweet, Deepika has danced very well in it. We have this very cute tribute to the Thalaivar, the great Rajnikanth. Music is also nice and peole will enjoy it,” the 47-year-old siad here at the launch of a mobile game based on “Chennai Express.”
Shah Rukh further said that Honey Singh had asked him to be a part of the video earlier as well and when he found it to be very close to the theme of Chennai Express, he agreed and even got Deepika Padukone to be a part of it.
“Yo Yo Honey Singh was wanting to do a video with me and recently we met somewhere and he asked me to be a part of the video. Recently he had a song about praising Rajnikanth saab, it is called the ‘Thalaivar’,” Shah Rukh said.
“He was talking about the song and I thought it was very apt that we have ‘Chennai Express’ and he is making this video. So Deepika and we all went and participated in it,” he added.
Composed, written and sung by Honey Singh, the song was choreographed by veteran choreographer Chinni Prakash.
