Phillauri: Anushka Sharma Raps For The First Time And Totally Nails It
Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh come together for a new song, Naughty Billo from Phillauri
While Anushka has danced to numerous chartbusters in her career, this is the first time she has rapped herself for a song. And boy, isn't she damn good?
The song has been sung by Diljit, Nakash Aziz and Shilpa Paul. It's a typical Punjabi folk song which has been given a modern touch with beats.
Apart from Anushka and Diljit, the song also has voices of Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Pirzada.
Phillauri, which is said to be a remake of the Hollywood film, A Corpse's Bride, will be Anushka's second production venture. She became producer with NH10 (2015), which was received very well by critics and audiences alike.
Phillauri would also mark the comeback to Bollywood of Suraj Sharma, who has become a big name in Hollywood after films like Life Of Pi (2012).
Diljit also has been fairly in demand in Bollywood after his first flick Udta Punjab (2016) became the talk-of-the-town.
A few days ago, the actor-singer was spotted at the audio wing of Yash Raj Studios in the wee hours with the Kala Chashma rapper Badshah. The latter took to Twitter and wrote, “Back in the studio after 4 years. @diljitdosanjh @Its_Badshah (sic).” However, he did not reveal the details of the song. Now, if the rumours doing the rounds are to be believed, the two are collaborating on a single.
The last time the duo worked together was for the chartbuster track Proper Patola in 2013. The single, composed by Badshah, received over one million hits on YouTube just within a fortnight of its release.
Considering the popularity of Proper Patola, we are sure Diljit-Badshah will weave magic, yet again.
Back to Phillauri, Diljit plays Anushka’s love interest in the film. The two actors are sharing screen space for the first time and we are sure the fresh pairing will definitely be welcomed by the viewers.
Phillauri, touted as a fun-filled romantic film is set in Phillaur (Punjab). It releases worldwide on March 24.
