The buzz around Farah Khan’s next Tees Maar Khan has been strong ever since the first reports came out. The film, produced by Twinkle Khanna, Shirish Kunder & Ronnie Screwvala wrapped up shooting last week and is preparing for a Christmas release. Ever since that first announcement, the film has been hitting the headlines. First, it was the casting of the super-hit jodi Akshay and Katrina together, then came Katrina’s much-hyped item song and the tag of being the next Jhumma Chumma girl. Subsequently, tongues were set wagging with the news of the “now-together-now-separated” pair of Salman-Katrina being paired up for a song in the movie. Most recently the rumoured spat between the lead pair set the gossipmongers on hot pursuit for spicy stories. Nonetheless, all this publicity led to a great build-up and fans were impatient for the first look and promos of the film.
On the sidelines, while Farah Khan was struggling to get her triplets to shoot for a cameo for the end credits, hubby Shirish Kunder is busy donning multiple caps of writer, producer, editor, debutant music composer and lyricist for the film (along with Vishal and Shekhar) as well as composing the background score. Shirish is especially elated about his composition for the film’s title track, for which Sonu Nigam lends his voice in 50 different ways, Shirish says, “Sonu Nigam, who has sung the title track, needs an exceptional mention and credit for the wonders that he has done to this track. He has sung the same song 50 times in 50 different voices! Of the 50 odd voices, there are male voices, female voices, the chorus and also Chinese girl’s voices. Sonu has sung all of these voices. And even in the male voice, there are 4 different voices. Each and every vocal that one hears is sung by Sonu Nigam! This is a song that tells us about all the characters in the film.”
While the first look was out over the weekend, the official website for the film was announced earlier today! Going by the theme of snazzy and sharp con-game, the background music composed by Shirish, a delectable mix of James Bond meets Pink Panther, is intriguing and catchy.
