With Race’s release date only a few weeks away and the soundtrack already in stores it is surprising to hear that a new song has been added to the film. The song, titled ‘Sexy Lady’, will replace ‘Mujhpe To Jaado’, which though on the album had not been filmed yet. The new song will be picturized on Katrina Kaif and Saif Ali Khan.
Producer Ramesh Taurani said, “We are thrilled with the great response to the title song ‘Race Sanson Ki’, ‘Pehli Nazar Mein’ and ‘Zara Zara Touch Me’. We wanted to keep the momentum going. When Pritam made us hear the tune of ‘Sexy Lady’, we knew that this was the song for the film.”
Pritam, the composer of the soundtrack added, “’Mujhpe To Jadoo’ was anyways waiting to be picturized. Since Abbas-Mustan also felt that ‘Sexy Lady’ could be a good replacement, everyone was in consensus with the decision.”
The filming for ‘Sexy Lady’ is already in progress and they plan to release a promo featuring the new song before the movie opens. Since it was not included on the original soundtrack release, it now will be part of a new release of the soundtrack in stores soon.
“We are quite happy with the way Race is leading up to its March 21 release. The songs are doing quite well and are leading the charts all over. We would begin unleashing the talkie promos early March. They would be a mix of action and drama which forms the USP of the film,” Taurani added.
The highly anticipated Race, directed by duo Abbas-Mustan, also stars Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Anil Kapoor, and Sameera Reddy.
