The response on the trailer of the film “Baaji” was itself a triumph. The film has been anticipated as one of the finest and sublime movies which will buoyantly open new avenues for the Pakistani film industry.
Saqib Malik’s debut film – “Baaji” seems like the most promising movie so far due to the smart selection of the cast and a storyline being the first of its kind in this revived film industry. Just to add to the ceaseless surprises film has been giving us since its announcement here’s another news.
After a soft, melodious and full-of-life song Badlaa’n by Zeb Bangash and Saad Sultan, Baaji has even more in the stock to release this Wednesday. The song named ‘Gangster Gurya’ will be here soon to blow our minds away. In an exclusive reveal to Pakistani Cinema, Saqib gave some inside scoop on this surprise song.
“As Baaji gears up for release we have a bunch of surprises up our sleeve. Yes there is a special cameo from one of our top stars and the song will surely be a chart buster. It is not an item number at all and should not be defined as that in any way. It’s a musical number with a very specific narrative context. We would like you guessing about the exact nature of this. But two things I can confirm, it has been choreographed by Osman Khalid Butt who is also one of the main players of Baaji. This is his brainchild. The music is by Taha Malik who gave Baaji the splendid recreation of ‘Khiltee Kali’. And the biggest news is that the globally renowned artist Sunidhi Chauhan has sung this amazing number , which we are hoping will be an international hit.”
The involvement of Sunidhi Chauhan and Osman Khalid Butt makes us more excited to look forward to this song. Just to remind, Osman has previously choreographed chartbuster songs ‘Billo Hai’ and ‘Imagine’ of last year’s “Parchi”and for Sunidhi Chauhan, the singer’s first song for a Pakistani film was ‘Galiyan Galiyan Hussn Diyan’ for Shahzad Rafique’s Punjabi film “Mohabbataan Sachiyaan” in 2007.
Although Saqib refrained from giving away the name of this surprise superstar that the song will feature, sources close to Pakistani Cinema have confirmed that its none other than Mehwish Hayat. Yes, our very own ‘billi’ is going to bust a move on this rock-on looking song and it couldn’t get any more exciting than this.
This makes ‘Gangster Gurya’ now a most exciting song due to the two amazing multitasker talents of our Industry, a civilian award winner Mehwish and the multi talented Osman Khalid butt reaped in for the project and then Sunidhi Chauhan being on board is icing on the cake.
The back to back surprises from the film have jacked up our anticipation even more. Now, we hope that the movie will surely get through the hearts of the audience and meet their expectations.
“Baaji” will release in cinemas worldwide on June 28.
