Bollywood star Riteish Deshmukh probably believes that he’s already proved his acting excellence. He’s taken to singing – that too in his first language – Marathi.
The latest Bollywood entertainer Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum launches Riteish as a singer as well as lyricist in the “UP Bihar Lootne” track.
The popular Hindi song features Sukhwinder Singh and Daler Mehndi for the first time together, thanks to Balaji Films.
Riteish wanted portions of the song,Â Â â€˜Dilwalon Ke Dil Ka Karar Lootneâ€™ originally from the movieÂ Shool (picturised on Shilpa Shetty), to contain some Marathi lyrics.
Riteish then sat down with composersÂ Meet Brothers Anjjan to not only sing but also to write the lyrics.
Say Meet Bros Anjjan, “He was a little shyÂ first but then we convinced him to sing and make his debut with us.”Â What resulted was a second version of the song,Â translated completely in Marathi by Ritesh and an accompanyingÂ YouTube video which Ritesh stars and sings in.
The film, aÂ follow up to the super hit, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, is due for release on 27Â July and also features Tusshar Kapoor – brother of Ekta Kapoor who owns Balaji Films.
Tusshar is an aspiring actor and RiteshÂ a struggling DJ, who succumb toÂ a twisted turn of events resulting in a lively, suspenseful and incrediblyÂ humorous story, set to the singular music of the trio.
Getting the songs together was not easy, consideringÂ producer Ekta Kapoor’s attention to detail. Say Meet BrosÂ Anjjan, “Sheâ€™s a very a tough person to sell to, but she sifted through theÂ 60-70 songs we played for her and included some of her favorites in theÂ film.”
They credit her with the success of “Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum” due toÂ the high standards she exercises on all her work. The film included theÂ songs “Teri Shirt da Button“, “Hum Toh Hain Cappacino” and “Volume High“,Â which have been quickly ascending in the music charts.
Meet Bros Anjjan have made compositions for films such as “DoÂ Dooni Chaar” and Rajshri Productionâ€™s “Isi Life Mein” for which they wereÂ presented with the Stardust award for “Best Standout Performance by MusicÂ Director”. Â They have also scored for Akshay Kumarâ€™s “Speedy Singh”, andÂ “Paan Singh Tomar”.
