Popular Punjabi singer and actor Gippy Grewal, known for upbeat "Angrezi beat", has tried to sing a slow number with "Sooraj", which released on Tuesday.

A T-Series production, the song's video was shot in Vancouver and is directed by Baljit Singh Deo. It features Gippy's son Shinda Grewal and Navpreet Banga.

B Praak has given music for the Jaani-penned song, which talks about love and betrayal, and depicts the collapse of a family unit.

"For a long time now, I had been wanting to do a song which is not just about having a good time. I was looking at doing something more intense. In 2010, in my film 'Jinhe Mera Dil Luteya', I had done a slow, emotional song which was appreciated a lot. 'Sooraj' gave me that scope," Gippy said in a statement.

"This song is very slow, the feel is very different. It has a lot more emotions. I have not sung such a composition before. Everything is very different for me in it," he added.

T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar appreciated that Gippy has tried a different form of creative expression that he has not attempted for some time.

The multi-talented Gippy impressed the audience with his acting in "Carry On Jatta 2". He is currently shooting for a new film in Canada.
