Emraan Hashmi, chartbuster songs and promotional music videos go together. ZEHER, KALYUG, AASHIQ BANAYA AAPNE, JAWAANI DIWANI, AWARAPAN and many more films have been a testimony to this fact.
Now JANNAT, Hashmi's soon to be released film, follows the same tradition as the young actor is seen in a promotional music video for the film. Titled 'Lambi Judai', the song is based on age-old folk number 'Lambi Judai - Chaar Dinon Ka Pyaar O Rabba'. However, in it's current version, the song takes a different take as it gets into a rock setting.
While Hashmi appears in a pensive mood amidst fast moving traffic (the style as witnessed recently in Atif Aslam sung 'Pehli Nazar Mein' - RACE), there are also innumerous shots from the film (showing Hashmi and his lady love Sonal Chauhan) interspersed in the promotional music video.
However, it is not Pritam but Pakistani artist Kamran Ahmed behind the song. He not just sings and writes 'Judai' but is also an original composer for the song. Also, he has been duly credited for his entire work on the song.
