Mumbai, India (PressExposure) August 06, 2009 -- In his quest to do something out of the box, singer Mika Singh has decided to take his forte -- bhangra singing -- one step further. The singer confirmed that he is trying his hand...err...vocal chords at something called Tamil Bhangra.
Mika continues to produce chartbusters in Bollywood with songs that are primarily based on bhangra beats. This time around however, music director Daniel George,gave him the freedom try something new. So, he stumbled on the concept of Tamil bhangra for the film Quickgun Murugan.
"Mika had this brainwave of having Tamil bhangra rather than the character dance in a normalbhangra, it was immediately approved," says a source. Sources also add that Punjabi bhangraand South Indian Tamil beats have been amalgamated to produce a new funky sound track. Sources say that the lyricist was also asked to add words such as idli, appam, and sambhar in the lines.
Did You Know?
Quickgun Murugan has been inspired by a character that Shah Rukh Khan portrayed in Om Shanti Om. Incidentally, this character has been modeled on the movies of Rajnikanth where he was shown having the powers of a superhero. The plot revolves around an unlikely superhero -- a South Indian cowboy, whose duty is to protect the world against arch villain restaurant owner, Rice Plate Reddy, who wants to create the ultimate non-veg dosa!
When we contacted Mika, heconfirmed, "Yes it is true that for the first time we are trying something this innovative. When we finished recording the song and we couldn't believe how funky it was sounding. It has turned out to be very catchy."
In fact, the song has been made the promotional song of the movie and Mika is so proud of it that he will be seen grooving to it too. The music video will also star a 'South Indian cowboy' (Rajendra Prasad, the protagonist of the film) along with him. "Even our dance is a mix ofbhangra and Tamil," ends Mika.
