MUMBAI: “All the Rajni fans, don’t miss this chance…do the Lungi Dance.”
Vishal-Shekhar and director Rohit Shetty’s stout denials seem to have fallen on deaf ears. Honey Singh’s special tribute to Rajnikanth for Shahrukh in Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express has been leaked on the internet.
Vehement sarcastic tweets and denials from composers Vishal-Shekhar notwithstanding, the special song that Honey Singh has composed for Chennai Express is very much on.
Says a source “Now that Shahrukh has got the song he will go all out with it . The problem is, who will break the news to Vishal-Shekhar who have so far not been formally told about the song?Ali Morani who is a very close friend of Shahrukh Khan has requested Honey Singh to keep quiet about the song until a solution is found.”
When contacted, Honey Singh said, “I’ve been hearing about the tweets and the denials. I am not saying anything. My Lungi dance for Shah Rukh speaks for itself. Let the matter be sorted between Red Chillies (Shahrukh Khan’s production house) and the Chennai Express music directors. I can understand how upset they are. Anyone would resent the very idea of another composer brought in at this late stage. If I was in their place I’d also get upset. Let me not speak on this. Please tell everyone to wait for two weeks. Doodh ka doodh aur paani ka paani ho jayega.”
