After Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, it's Nargis Fakhri, trying her hand at singing. A lot of Bollywood divas have ventured in the music arena. And now we have the very gorgeous Nargis joining the brigade! For the past few months, the diva has been living in Los Angeles, doing A LOT of travelling and working on her singing debut. She has teamed up with Parichay and Kardinall Offishall for this Indo-Canadian track that she will soon be releasing!
We hear the name of her single is 'Habitaan Vigaad Di' and that it's going to be one racy number! With Nargis dancing to it, it's pretty obvious she'll be setting fire to the dance floor with her oomph! Plus, bringing in Parichay and Kardinall is quite a good move! Parichay is best known for his track, Aaj Phir Peene Ki Tamannah Hai, from the film Loveshhuda. The song Habitaan Vigaad Di has been penned down by Kumaar. The theme of the song is actually quite Barbie Girl-esque. Turns out Nargis will be playing a fantasy chick in the music video, where the chorus is in Punjabi.
The song has been composed by Parichay, who showed the track to Nargis. He sent two songs composed by him, out of which, the diva made her choice. The entire video has been shot in Toronto, featuring the city's highlights like it's popular 1800 ft high communications' tower and much more. Since it is a track for the Canadian audience, they have ensured that all the pop places are captured.
“To give the song an East-meets-West flavour, the team brought mainstream Canadian rap-legend Kardinal on-board to record and film with Nargis and Parichay,“ says the source. With Nargis' heavy accent, she didn't want to sound disrespectful to the Hindi and Punjabi audience and hence, the actress rehearsed extensively. Says the source, “For the main chorus line, she gave 100 takes because she couldn't get the Punjabi lyrics right. She made sure to learn the correct pronunciation of every word from Parichay." You can check out a peek from their video above!
Nargis and Parichay will be flying down to promote the single and also to perform a few bits from their single. So we hear that they have planned to show up at clubs in the city and surprise everyone with a live performance of their track. Pretty cool, right? We can't wait for this!
