Karan Johar and Shashank Khaitan’s comic thriller Mr Lele just got more glam factor to it. Starring Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani and Bhumi Pednekar, the makers have roped in Ranbir Kapoor for a hot and happening music track. As per a report in Pinkvilla, the actor will shoot for the dance number from Wednesday. The song is composed by Tanishk Bagchi and Rochak Kohli, and will be shot in Mumbai’s Mehboob studio. Ganesh Acharya has choreographed the dance number, while designer Manish Malhotra has styled the actor’s look for the same.
The portal reported, "Karan and Shashank were keen to rope in Ranbir for the track. Ranbir is very close to Karan. Apart from acting in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, Ranbir has acted in KJo's directorial Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. It’s a peppy song in Mr Lele which will be shot at Mehboob Studios from Wednesday. Ranbir has been rehearsing for it there over the last few days. It’s a solo track and is being choreographed by Ganesh Acharya. The song is a catchy number which will see Ranbir gyrating to some massy grooves and styled by Manish Malhotra."
