Sunny Leone’s song in Dongri Ka Raja called Choli Blockbuster, by the Meet Bros will be a special promotional item song. The brothers say that they had done away with the conventional idea of an item number.
Says Manmeet, “Baby Doll changed the way actors and audiences looked at songs of this genre. It became accessible to listeners of all ages and of either gender.” Harmeet agrees, “The lyrics of our songs are such that it’s clean enough for kids and girls as well to sing along.”
Return of Mamta
But with Choli Blockbuster, they will return to the roots of the genre — the massy item number that once was the sole domain of singer Mamta Sharma. It sees them reunite with (now off-on collaborator) Anjjan Bhattacharya after over a year and with Mamta as well. The brothers last worked with her in the Zanjeer remake’s Pinky in 2013. Since then, they have been working continuously with the likes of Kanika Kapoor and Neha Kakkar.
“DKR is based in Mumbai’s underworld and hence, the song demanded a massy feel, something that might appeal to the frontbenchers and those who enjoy rustic-flavoured songs. And Mamta’s just perfect for this kind of song,” shares Manmeet.
Putting team together
“Ganesh Acharya was our go-to guy for choreography and Sunny was the obvious choice for this track. Sunny and us have never done such a song together. This will also be the first time Mamta has sung for Sunny,” adds Harmeet.
Manmeet chips in, “It’s a very cute party track with peppy beats, but our approach is very Indian. We last worked with Sunny for One Night Stand earlier and she was our first choice for this track. We feel nobody else can do justice to this track.” Shot at a studio near Film City late last week, the track will be launched on October 15.
