Get ready to see Dharamendra in a new avatar altogether - as a rapper. The buzz is that the veteran actor has done a Punjabi rap for action-comedy 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2's title track.
Yash Raj Film (YRF) Music has acquired the worldwide music and digital rights of 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2' starring the Deol trio - Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby. The movie is a sequel to 2011 film 'Yamla Pagla Deewana', and its music will release in early May.
Needless to say, the rap number by the 77-year-old senior Deol will be the highlight of the album. Producers Sunny Sounds Pvt Ltd and YRF Music have forged a strategic alliance for the movie's music. This will be an exclusive license deal for worldwide distribution of songs and videos across all digital and physical formats, said a statement. Multi-talented music director duo Sharib and Toshi's compositions on Kumaar's lyrics are likely to pull audiences on the dance floors.
Directed by Sangeeth Sivan, the film also features Neha Sharma, Kristina Akheeva, Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Johnny Lever and Sucheta Khanna. Its theatrical trailer was unveiled on March 27, while the film itself will hit the screens on June 7.
