Sidharth Malhotra is gearing up for his next release A GENTELMAN which hits the screens tomorrow.

With the trailer and songs becoming a rage amongst masses, Sid makes his singing debut with the film.


The actor loves Hip-Hop and was delighted to take up the microphone for the first time. Sidharth Malhotra lent his voice for the hip-hop party song 'Bandook Meri Laila' featuring Haryanvi lyrics. The song was recorded at Shankar Mahadevan's suburban studio with composer-singer duo Sachin- Jigar on Thursday.

However, it wasn't accidental that Sidharth Malhotra landed up rapping for the film. The composer duo Sachin and Jigar had observed the actor's voice and found it perfect for the rap. Jigar revealed, "He has a great baritone which is rare in actors. We asked him what kind of music he likes and he said hip hop .Eminem is his favourite rapper. When we asked him to rap for the track, he immediately said yes. It's a fun song that goes along the lines of, `A gun is like my girlfriend and my girlfriend's as hot as a gun', which is in sync with Sid's character."

Jigar also said that the song ‘Bandook Meri Laila’, a rap and party song was one genre they wanted to explore.  It gives a complete feel of guns and roses, and Sidharth has a youth connect.”

Sachin said, “This is the first time all the song before the release of the film have become popular and we hope the film is loved and appreciated by the all.”
