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, ‘Dilwalon Ke Dil Ka Karar Lootne’ originally from the movie Shool (picturised on Shilpa Shetty), to contain some Marathi lyrics.
Riteish then sat down with composers Meet Brothers Anjjan to not only sing but also to write the lyrics.
Say Meet Bros Anjjan, “He was a little shy first but then we convinced him to sing and make his debut with us.” What resulted was a second version of the song, translated completely in Marathi by Ritesh and an accompanying YouTube video which Ritesh stars and sings in.
The film, a follow up to the super hit, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, is due for release on 27 July and also features Tusshar Kapoor – brother of Ekta Kapoor who owns Balaji Films.
Tusshar is an aspiring actor and Ritesh a struggling DJ, who succumb to a twisted turn of events resulting in a lively, suspenseful and incredibly humorous story, set to the singular music of the trio.
Getting the songs together was not easy, considering producer Ekta Kapoor’s attention to detail. Say Meet Bros Anjjan, “She’s a very a tough person to sell to, but she sifted through the 60-70 songs we played for her and included some of her favorites in the film.”
They credit her with the success of “Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum” due to the high standards she exercises on all her work. The film included the songs “Teri Shirt da Button“, “Hum Toh Hain Cappacino” and “Volume High“, which have been quickly ascending in the music charts.
Meet Bros Anjjan have made compositions for films such as “Do Dooni Chaar” and Rajshri Production’s “Isi Life Mein” for which they were presented with the Stardust award for “Best Standout Performance by Music Director”. They have also scored for Akshay Kumar’s “Speedy Singh”, and “Paan Singh Tomar”.
