The trailer of Dibakar Banerjee’s upcoming political thriller Shanghai is making waves and the buzz to know more about the film has really increased. Starring Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol as we have never seen them before, Shanghai, based
on Vassilis Vassiliko’s novel ‘Z’ about the real-life assassination of a dynamic politician set in an Indian context is set to release on June 8th.
In the trailer, the song playing is ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, which already has fans ready for the full OST by Vishal-Shekar! Of course, it is complete, but T-Series has now decided to add a Sufi song which will be a part of the film. Emraan and Arabic Sufi songs are a formula for success. In fact, Emraan Hashmi has done many films which has Sufi songs in it, the most recent being ‘Ishq Sufiyana’ from The Dirty Picture.
Agreeing to the concept, Dibakar said, ‘a film is not complete without adding a Sufi song and especially when Emraan Hashmi is there as your actor. Sometimes, you have to go with it’.
We hear the song is finalized and is set to be shot as early as possible. Let’s see if the combination of Sufi Song and Emraan Hashmi again hits the heart of the audience.
