In the times when each and every actor worth his salt has dabbled in being a part of a promotional music video of an upcoming film, it comes as a surprise to see Rani Mukherjee doing so only after being in the industry for around a decade.
Ever since Rani made her debut with RAJA KI AAYEGI BARAAT, she has been a part of number of successful films (number of them being musicals) but never once did she appear in a promotional music video.
Eventually she is taking a plunge into the scheme of things by consenting to be a part of a promotional music video for her next Friday's release LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG.
She features in the stylishly directed video for the title song 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' which is rendered by Shubha Mudgal and Mita Vashishth, composed by Shantanu Moitra with additional lyrics by Swanand Kirkire.
Originally composed by Roshan and written by Sahir Ludhianvi, the song has lyrics 'spoken' rather than 'sung' by Mita Vashisht whereas Shubha Mudgal’s haunting rendition goes well with the lounge mood of the track.
The video is shot solely on Rani Mukherjee as she is shown in a pensive mood while draped in white for most part of the song. There are number of close up shots with Rani to depict the pain that her character in the film goes through.
LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG is the second directorial venture for Pradep Sarkar after PARINEETA. The film comes in the wake of producer YASH RAJ FILMS' recent blockbuster CHAK DE INDIA.
