Next single by Yo Yo Honey Singh, which is the singer-composer’s tribute to Bhushan Kumar’s father Shri Gulshan Kumar, will see actor Hrithik Roshan featuring in it.
Honey Singh, who has huge respect for Shri Gulshan Kumar has recreated his memorable cult song Dheere Dheere Se from Aashiqui and revised the lyrics for the new track. A love song by country’s one of the most popular artist definitely needs a face who has stole the audiences hearts and that’s when instantly Bhushan finalized on the Greek God of Hindi film industry.
Bhushan Kumar is enthusiastic about recreating his father’s most romantic track Dheere Dheere Se of the cult film Aashiqui. Bhushan says, “When Yo Yo Honey Singh met me for the first time, he told me how he respected my father so much and he had dreams to one day working with him. He had read somewhere that Dheere Dheere Se was my father’s favourite song and said that he wanted to recreate it for him and that too for free, even though he otherwise charges a huge amount. He started the work but then fell ill last year. During his illness, I met him three times at his house. I met him first time, then second time during my sister’s wedding, but it was on my third visit only, when Honey was feeling much better and had started composing again, that I asked him if he felt comfortable to finish the song, as I wanted to pay a tribute to my father as Aashiqui completes 25 years. And Honey completed the song.”
Kumar later went to Hrithik Roshan, who was his first choice to dance on the single. He made him listen to the song without telling him the purpose for which he was making it. Hrithik loved it, but didn’t see the reason why he should dance to an old recreated song, given that he has never ever been part of a single song video. Bhushan then told Hrithik his reasons for making it and within a second he said, ‘I am doing it for Gulshanji. That will be my only reason to dance to it.’
While Hrithik and Yo Yo Honey Singh are both doing it for free, Bhushan is doing it only for emotional reasons and he is clear that there is no money to be made on this. Hrithik will be shooting for the song in Turkey for the next two days.
