Honey Singh Reveals Shah Rukh Khan Initially Didn’t Like ‘Lungi Dance’ Song; Rapper Says, ‘I Always Had Trouble Making Music For Bollywood'
Honey Singh reveals Shah Rukh Khan took three weeks to decide whether he wants the song ‘Lungi Dance’ or not in Chennai Express
Singer-rapper Honey Singh in a new interview has made a surprising revelation that Shah Rukh Khan initially did not like the super hit song ‘Lungi Dance’ from Chennai Express. Yes, you read that right! SRK took three weeks to decide whether he wants the song or not. Honey even mentioned that this was one of the reasons why he always had trouble making composing songs for Bollywood films. To note, the ‘Lungi Dance’ song paid tribute to Tamil superstar Rajinikanth and saw Shah Rukh dancing with Deepika Padukone.
Speaking with ETimes, the rapper said, “I have always had trouble making music for Bollywood. When Shah Rukh bhai called me to make a song for Chennai Express, he told me to make something like 'Angreji Beat’. I asked him why, so he said because that song was a huge hit. I told him that I won’t make a song like that but will create a number which has his vibe. I made Lungi Dance and he did not like it. He took three weeks to decide whether he wants the song or not.” ALSO READ:
