For the first time ever, Yash Raj Films’ Gunday will have one complete Bengali song. Composed by the the What’s Your Rashee? fame Sohail Sen, the Bengali song has rendered by Bappi Lahiri and is pictured on Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor.
Talking about it, Sohail Sen says, “I can’t reveal too much about it. But it’s a full-on masti number filmed on Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor. Bappi Uncle has sung for both of them.”
Sohail, son of veteran music composer Sameer Sen, has been acquainted with Bappi Lahiri since childhood. He adds, “Since Gunday is set in Kolkata, director Ali Abbas Zafar and I thought that Bappi Uncle would be the right choice for the Bengali track. We not only had a great time recording with him but also learnt a lot from him.”
Bappi Lahiri who had an awesome time crooning the Bengali song for the film, turned 61 this week . Talking about it, he says “It’s not often that one gets to sing in one’s mother tongue in a Hindi film. The Gunday song was great fun. It’s produced by the newly-revived Bombay Talkies productions and is directed by Johnny Walker’s son Nassir. It’s great fun to be working with so many young people. I may be 61 but I don’t feel old.”
