Debutante director Shilpi Dasgupta’s yet-untitled slice-of-life features Sonakshi Sinha and rapper-singer Badshah who will be making his acting debut.
The duo is all set to recreate Jasbir Jassi’s hit song from 2003, ‘Koka,’ on screen. The film’s team is retaining Jasbir Jassi’s voice with some rap portions by Badshah in Tanishk Bagchi’s recreated version.
The folksy number is being used as a celebratory track with Sonakshi and Badshah, along with Varun Sharma and other actors grooving to the catchy beats.
Sonakshi confirmed the news, saying, “Yes, Koka is a peppy, foot-tapping number, one of my favourites, and we had a great time shooting it.”
Her co-star added that I has been a pleasure to revisit Jasbir Jassi’s magic, a full-throated Punjabi celebration of Sonakshi’s character, her crazy family and circle of friends. “Tanishk has done a great job with urbanising the folk sound and it’s definitely going to be the new jam this wedding season,” he promised.
Producer Bhushan Kumar adds, “The backdrop is Punjabi and the characters are happy-go-lucky people. They celebrate their happiness in full-on masti and in keeping with the flavour and characters, ‘Koka’ was the apt song to take forward.”
The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Kishan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar, Mahaveer Jain and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba.
