New Delhi, May 1 (IANS) Singer Neha Bhasin, who recently released her seventh folk single titled “Nai Jaana”, has now crooned a romantic number for superstar Salman Khan’s upcoming film “Sultan”.
Bhasin, who was a member of the popular all-girl band VIVA, said she has also sung a dance number for the sequel to the 2002 film “Aankhen”.
The “Dhunki” hitmaker said that the composition of the song for “Sultan” has a dash of folk.
“You will hear a little bit of folk in the song from ‘Sultan’ as well. I mean it’s not a folk song, but the composition is a little bit like that… It has a Rajasthani touch. The track for ‘Aankhen 2’ is like a typical film (song)… It will be the title track,” Bhasin told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
“The track for ‘Sultan’ is a romantic song and ‘Aankhen 2’ is a dance number. ‘Sultan’ will be out soon in July. ‘Aankhen 2’ will release later this year,” Bhasin added.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, “Sultan” is said to be based on life of Sultan Ali Khan — a wrestler who is faced with problems in his professional and personal lives. To get hold of the character in the best possible way, Salman gained weight and underwent rigorous training.
The film also stars Anushka Sharma as a wrestler. Produced by Aditya Chopra under the Yash Raj Films banner, “Sultan” is slated to release on Eid in 2016.
