Music director Sohail Sen's latest song 'Tune Maari Entriyaan' from Ali Abbas Zafar's GUNDAY featuring Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra and Arjun Kapoor has become an instant hit since it released a few days back.
Ask Sohail about it and he says, ''Well this is the only song which has three leads (Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra and Arjun Kapoor) in it. So we had to come up with something which is has an immediate connect with the masses but keeping in the mind the classes as well. And Irshad (Kamil) bhai came up with amazing lyrics so it couldn't get better than this.''
''With the kind of grandeur the song has a lot of efforts have been put into it,'' explains Sohail, ''Because of its magnificence we decided to have lot of live instruments. We called Sivamaniji on board for the rhythm arrangement. In fact to compensate these live instruments with today's time we added rock guitar to it. So 'Tune Maari Entriyaan' is a combination of drums, dhols and rock guitar.''
While the hindi version of 'Tune Maari Entriyaan' is sung by KK, Vishal Dadlani, Neeti Mohan and Bappi Lahiri, the Bengali version is done by Bappi Lahiri and Monali Thakur, both of which have been accepted well by the audience.
Meanwhile, the third song of GUNDAY titled 'Jiya' is releasing tomorrow. Sung by the latest sensation Arijit Singh, the song is picturized on the sexy Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh.
Ask him about working with Arijit and he says, ''It was great to work with him. Arijit wasn't well the day he heard the song. But the moment he listened to it he said he had to sing the song. And we recorded it immediately.''
Sohail adds further, ''And normally what happens is that if a singer loves a song he will give his 110% to the song which is what you will sense it in this song.''
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, GUNDAY is slated to release on February 14, 2014.
