Say hello to this longest track ever...!
The Salman Khan-Sooraj Barjatya combo is on its way to another record. After a whopping 14 tracks in Hum Aapke Hain Koun..?, the highest in any Bollywood film, their latest Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will have the longest track ever.
"Himesh Reshammiya has scored the music of the film -- nine songs in all", a source confided. One of those nine songs will be as long as 13 minutes. Confirms Ahmed Khan, the choreographer of PRDP, "There is a 13-minute song in PRDP, which I have choreographed for. It is the longest song in Bollywood ever". But it won't be part of any particular antakshari scene, clarifies Khan. "Unlike Hum Aapke Hain Koun..?, there won't be any antakshari scene in the film. It is not a combination of eight songs together either. It is just one full song that spans over a particular sequence in the film. It takes the story ahead"
What's the sequence, we ask. Comes the reply, "Salman will be seen playing football at a marriage ceremony. He has danced in the song in a different attire altogether. He will be dancing in kurta and pyjamas and the entire feel and vibe of the song is totally different. There's a unique magic to the number".
Our source gave us some more details into the song sequence. "The song will come at a pivotal point in the film and like the cricket scene in Hum Aapke Hain Koun, the song will have the entire family, including Sonam Kapoor, bonding over football at a marriage ceremony. The song will have a nice emotional touch to it, typical Rajshri style".
The song will see Salman reprising his iconic lover-boy Prem avatar and retain his disarming candour and Ahmed recently shot for the song. "We recently shot the song and it has turned out really great. You will understand it only once it's out."
Meanwhile, Ahmed is choreographing two more songs in Salman's upcoming Eid offering- Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He confirms, "I am doing two songs for Bajrangi because I was busy with my release (Ek Paheli Leela)". The ace choreographer has already finished shooting one scene for BB. "One of the songs is a romantic number which we have finished and the other is a Being Human type of song which is more like a 'performance' song", revealed Ahmed.
